Absolutely. I'm just posting to let you know not to worry, and that you will get money. The cost of the repair at a shop is surely more than your deductible.

Hit and run, he'* 100% liable. I'm hopping the police find enough to say ya, it was him. then his insurance and deductible covers it.

Dan,'

My parked 2007 F350 was hit in the rear quarter panel at work by a 19 year old uninsured, unemployed mother who had just bought a junk minivan from a buy here pay here lot. She was driving in the snow and ran a stop sign and ran into the the parking lot. Damage was 2k, and I had a 1k deductible. My insurance company told me it was a "non chargeable claim". Had the repair done and paid 1k, insurance paid 1k. My policy doubled shortly after. When I called my agent- he stated a non-chargeable claim only meant they would not mark me as a bad driver. Did not mean they would not raise my rates. I would never have claimed the accident if I would have known I was going to get clobbered. Probably have a accident history tied to the VIN also on carfax, even though the damage was only cosemetic.

BTW- I was not pissed at the 19 year old uninsured Mom. I was livid with the buy here pay here lot that sold her a junk mini-van (that now had a totaled front end) and let her drive away without insurance. Took everything in my brain not to go to that lot and go postal. I actually felt bad for the Mom, now she is paying weekly for a totaled vehicle that was junk when she bought it, I am sure my insurance company sent her to collection... and how does she find a job with no vehicle.

Sorry to see that Dan. There isn't extra room behind the cover to enlarge the holes by much.

You know... You could enlarge the holes behind the cover, and then you can enlarge the holes on the cover!

The holes are molded as part of the support for the structure. I'm not sure I'd take on that work because it might hurt in a crash situation.

Thats easy to say, not knowing the realities. No Insurance company covers Custom Paint without a very expensive attached "rider". A lot of them don't even want to handle the car. I looked into it when I had it done and the annual expense didn't make it sound reasonable. If Custom insured, the entire $7000 would be payed out and the car totally redone. Even for a sizable "blemish mark" That makes premiums for insurance on paint schemes other than a solid color crazy. As it is, I am going to have to settle for the broken pieces to be replaced, painted the OEM Cranberry Metallic. And a nervous trip to the Custom shop to see if things can be matched adequately. Candy paint bleaches out with age, the paint is 4 years old, and I may end up leaving it and wearing a bra full time. I feel very lucky the impact didn't affect the fender or door.
