Default daughter+ssei+cement post=guess!

Well my daughter came home from work today and seemed a little out of character. She came home and was really nice to me and sat down with us and watched some TV with me and overall was very sociable with Lisa and I. Well Lisa was the first to ask....Ashley what'* up........with a response from Ashley came........Ah Dad it'* the car........ to which I said what did you do???? Did you hit anyone, kill anyone.....to which she said no I just hit a cement wall in the parking garage at work.......well I just sighed and thought oh well, just another project to do on the old bonnie now.

Here is my next project......replace and re-paint right rear door:

Oh Brian sorry to hear, at least no one got hurt and your daughter is ok. I guess your options are.

1. leave it as is
2. Have a body shop do the repairs
3. Get a door from the scrap yard, hopefully the same colour and re & re.
4. Purchase just the door skin, if they're still available the re & re the skin and repaint.
5. Try to suck out the old dent then use body filler to fill in the rest to smothen it out.
6. Purchase a new car



Just a thought.

Jim you don't know my daughter........she'* the type that piles up 3 weeks of cups, dishes and silverware in her room, leaves the bathroom in a mess (after taking her 2 hour showers), leaves her lunches in my kitchen sink for a week before I have her clean them, and has a heeping pile of crap in her garbage can in her room that gets taken out to the trash about once a month..................NO WAY IN H E L L do I want HER fixing that car!

Ah yes Frank I like option #3. All I need is to find a car with a good rear passenger door in the same colour..........hmmmmmmmmmm I wonder where I can find a car the same colour with said part........hmmmmmmmmm what time do you usually go to bed at night Frank.........hmmmmmmmmm how sound of a sleeper are you Frank...........hmmmmmmmm what was your address again Frank!

i'll swing by the yard tomorrow and let you know what'* available here.

I'd almost leave it until she gets older. give you time to find a new door, and give her time to realize what she'* done
