Default Great car is &%$!&( up!!!!!!!!!!

so i was at a friends house last nite, parked by a barn out of the way of the snow and the snow/ice onn barns roof fell off at nite hit my roof and left the messed up. it concaved in to the point where i couldnt sit in the car. i kicked it out and got it to normal but it looks horrible... also the hood is creased in 10 different spots. so i was wandering if anyone knew what the shop could do. or if they would just fiberglass the spots after pulling the dents and creases out? the hood i could prolly just pick one up at the yard and redo the stripes then.

I believe there are dent kits that have like a suction cup to pull out dents. As long at the metal is not creased this should work. The hood, if you can find a used hood at a good price and the right color. Then change it. You will need to find one local, shipping on a hood is really high.

Good question, but hard to answer. Insurance'* work the bottom line, that is body work vs blue book. You'd have to get an estimate.

glad you got to keep your car. If you are handy with sheet metal you could just get the roof skin off a junk yard bonneville. Also I am wondering how much the bodyshop quoted you on repairs?
