its definetely not gonna get fixed anytime soon. possibly this summer when the cashflow is better. i have class with the son of the bodyman next hour so ill ask him to take a look at it later. but unless its cheap enough to pay in cash its not gonna get fixed. because if we claimed it on our insurance it would obviously count against me. making my future insurance even higher. and its not a big enough deal to do that. and it would raise my parents rates also and we dont need that.but if i could fix it for like 200 or so thatd be nice. but id have to live in dreamland for that too happen. what do you guys think about poundin that piece of metal back down? the one above the bumper. i think the trunk would close right if that was flat.its metal under that plastic.

Well if the bumper isn't too bad, maybe you can find someone good with sheet metal that can fix the dent in the trunk. If you had everything fixed at a shop, it would definitely be at least $1000, with all those things that are cracked. How bad does the bumper look?

:( Sorry it happened! :(

Tail light lense Wont be cheap, but I would be inclined to pound out the trunk, it wont be pretty, but it cant get any worse.

OUCH man... those pix look painful....

Sorry to hear about your bump... glad it wasn't anything too serious.
Eg... hitting a telephone pole while doing 90....

LOL... no Hoov.... it was just an example of a pole accident that could have been worse... I thankfully haven't hit any poles while driving.

When I first read your topic, I thought YOU hit a pole while driving FORWARD and fast, you know the type that requires a new engine, airbags and car... lol. Sorry for the mix up.
