mrpotatohead Heres the end result after the fender was fixed and factory hood scrapped in favor of a new one. The bondo in the old hood was 1/8" deep and cracked. It was done by Abra auto body in Sandy and I couldnt be happier.

mrpotatohead Whew, okay they waived the ded this morning. Which is a good thing because the hood needed completely replaced which bumped my personal repair bill up another $300 some dollars. The only thing wrong with the front end was the track bar bent a little.

Thats odd, you shouldn't be having to pay anything then. someone isn't doing a job right if thats the case.

I am just curious. what all did the body shop say was broken?

It was always my understanding that the other persons policy covers damages if deemed at fault. Am I jumping the gun on panic?
Yes you are. You shouldn't have to pay anything if it was deemed 100% his fault.

Glad everyones okay!

Few weeks ago I was driving thru the parking lot at Publix and a "Elderly" lady backed out between my front and rear tires. I removed the entire rear bumper cover off her 3 month old Toyota Corolla. Afterwards she said she never saw me and continued backing up after I drove over her untill her bumper cover wedged under her car and stopped her. 82 years old and just got her Florida drivers license renewed, Scary huh.
Rubbins racin!

The smittybilt double tube bumpers are crap I will give that to the smittyhaters. I dented one with a screwdriver handle. My stinger has served as a winch point a few times and like I said been put into a BMW with minimal damage to even the powder coat. I'm a big fan.

mrpotatohead I'm just glad I didn't broadside him. I've tested that stinger on an old 3 series and I would feel awful if I put that through his door and ended his life 3 months prematurely.

PStov98TJ Yeah definitely get all your steering stuff checked out. Sounds like you could have some bent up stuff up front.
05-18-2013 06:13 PM
mrpotatohead Nope. Just an ever so slight scuff to the flare. My steering wheel is off by almost 1/4 turn though and I'm getting a really bad clicking sound from underneath that sounds like a flexplate. The impact rocked me pretty hard. It's getting picked up and taken to a shop on monday
05-18-2013 05:54 PM
PStov98TJ Thank god for wide tires looks like no real body damage was done
