I Got Backed Into

right now i don't know if i want to throw up or cry. i went to get lunch and parked the car behind a jeep. i remember thinking to myself that it was covered in mud and probably from the reservation so i gave myself lots of room. when i came back out from getting lunch the jeep was gone and there was another car in front of where the jeep was. i thought wow that car didn't leave that jeep much room. i went around to the front of my car and sure enough it had been scrubbed by the jeep. the nose right at the point has been scuffed. no plastic is broken.

i'm just heartbroken and shaking right now

i don't even know how hard this is going to be to fix

has anyone had any experience with having to get this fixed? man i need to put another call into my insurance company as well

Makes you want to really hurt them, so sorry Kitty. If the paint is just scuffed it may be able to be wet sanded out? I am sure some of the experts will chime in. I started taking pics of LIC plate #'s after my 3rd door ding and inspecting when I got back to the car. I really try to park in the back 40 if I can. Drive one of your big trucks to town, find the Jeep, and go "Oops, sorry I flattend your little peice of crap buddy".

Jeep drivers just seem to be messed up. I used to have a friend at my last job whose S-10 got hit by a Jeep leaving the parking lot. The useless supervisors never looked at the surveillance tapes to see who it was.

oh jon thank you that actually made me smile just thinking of doing that

i have an apt at 3 with the body shop in town to get a rough idea of what it will cost to have it repaired. i'm not going to make a police report or contact my insurance till i know roughly where the bill is going to be. my collision deduct is $500 so if it's going to cost less then that to fix (which i'm hoping to god it will by about half if not less) then i'll avoid those two and just get it fixed

Sorry about that kitty i know the feeling someone got my back quater panel the other day made me sick to my stomach

If it just scuffed might be able to buff it out if you have a machine buffer and some aggresive cutting compound or swirl remover then polish it back up.....

the guy at the body shop seems to figure that the entire bumper will have to be taken off and repainted. i'm going to see if i can find a second opinion. i really don't want to have to go through insurance again especially with my collision deduct at $500
