Just got off the phone with the insurance, told them that the guy wants to pay for it out of his own pocket. They said to get 3 estimates and let the person know about it, and go from there, and if I have to go through insurance then they can still process it.

Anyways, that'* a huge bummer...I hope all work out for you though.
Yours sounds like a little denatured alcohol might do the trick. If not, then the finish might be damaged. I would try to rub it out. I don't think mine can be rubbed out though. he he he ..

PJ I've acuatlly found if you have a few good coats of wax on at all times...a little more wax and rubbing will take off nearly anything. If you really concentrated on that initial point of impact if probably woulda come off.

Sam...you didn't have a scuff there. That'* a major altercation....lol

You're trying to talk me out of rubbing it out, aren't ya?

You might be right..I think the scratches are deep...

I gotta get a laugh out of it. I have a hip problem, and a shoulder problem since that accident, but what really bugs me is I had a total of around 8000-9000 invested in that car, including buying it, and the insurance company gave me a whopping 4000 bucks.

That car is gone now...Junked it, but I kept the tranny. The tranny had about 5000 miles on it at the time, which is why I kept it. I paid close to 1400 for that rebuild. I got a discount because I bought a tranny from them before.


Are you sure a little compound and some elbow grease couldn't shine that car up nicely? he he he

It could shine yes...no problem there. Agreed that some scratches are pretty deep and might need touch up. Not sure if you considered shining it up before sending it off to the yard.

Did he not see you at all? Silver cars are the worst for visibility.

Too lazy to explain the accident, basically the truck won, LOL. He seen me but it was too late.

Got a few estimates
Once of them for just over 2,200$
and another one for around 1,300$. I am sending him the 2 quotes and go from there. I would rather the place that quoted 1,300$ anyhow. It ends up that I know his parents from when I was a kid, they live right next door to my aunt and uncle. And the shop is known for good work.
