Quick update: Got the car back yesterday. The repair is perfect - bumper actually fits better now that the one from the factory and the paint is perfectly matched.

The only thing bothering me though is a cloudy residue left on the car, most probably an aftereffect of the liquid mask they spray all over the car. Rick told me he will have the car polished. Just waiting to hear back when they can get it in.

Sounds to me like its over spray, If that's the case, then clay bar should get rid of it.

I'll give the clay bar a go but the residue is imperceptible to the touch so I'm not sure if it will make any difference. I want them to polish it also because their wash process seems to have left a few, albeit very minor, swirl marks that weren't their before.

Sorry for the slow updates. B&S Hacienda took the car last Tuesday and polished it back to its original shine. Whatever the residue was, it was too stubborn for a clay bar, so polish it had to be. Rick did me a solid by getting me a rental for the day to get to work and back. Will post pictures soon.

Glad to hear it. They took care of me as well - different circumstances - but they have a solid reputation.

I've seen the orange peel in the clear as well. I have a feeling it is not immediately visible as the clear cures, however it seems to polish out.
