If they didn't know better, they'd probably think that they somehow got silver paint inside their headlamps!

well its entirely up to the insurance company weather they want to replace the fender or not, given the amount of damage on it they concluded the it would cost less to pay the hours for the bodyman to repair it then it would cost the replace it entirely ( dont forget GM parts cost an arm and a leg
