A metal clip off a lorry managed to twat my car today..



Similar to those black ties, but a metal hook

Diddn't get insurance details, but have his numberplate.

What would be the rough cost to sort out?

Shouldn't be too bad, dent wil probably push/pull out, paint might not need doing if it's not scratched too badly.

Windscreen would have cost more I reckon.

Yeah was thinking if it could get filled & sprayed, it's not in the best of places

I was already in a bad mood, and I knew if I got out the car I would have done something I'd regret

Write off that, the A pillar is a structural part of the car, it may be twisted. Get it on a jig to be checked.

I'm guessing they'll have to spray most of the door to match? If so, Around 100 me thinks

i reckon youl be needing a new rear quarter panel there mate, even if they were to fill it and spray it, would cost a bit in labour and having it sprayed, would have to do the whole panel, also a lot of the car has to be taken apart to remove the rear quarter panel, ive just had a new one on mine as some stupid bint reversed into mine! can see the damage a little bit in my pic in my avatar.

that will pull out,

we had a car in when i was in my mates bodyshop, had a wee dent abovethe door

they just got a wee puller thing from the company Wurth its got wee plastic tags that glue to the bodywork and a gun that goes over and pulls it out,

it worked on the dent im talking about which is just as strong as the a-pillar

worth a shot
