Glad you are okay. If I was in TN, I could fix it for ya!yeah i knew i couldnt get stopped...it was either go over the bank and end up on my top or pull the brake and try to get the rear around and catch the pole....
been looking for a reason to get a new hood and spoiler anyway...lol
That may be true, but it depends on the sheetmetal guage, its condition, and if you want filler or a new panel. If that dent was on some Korean or Japanese tin can, I would guess "saving" it would be real tough. I know this from 26 years experience in the bodyshop biz. Of course your "friendly" "honest" insurance adjuster will tell you he "could fix in 2 hours!" UMMMMMMMMMMMMM, no.I've seen worse quarter panels get fixed.
You'd be surprised what kinda dents they can pull out nowadays.
Thankyou, Lu, for that public service message. I will note this if I am ever back in Louisville.For the on-topic record:
One must be careful when taking a left turn out of the Stonybrook parkinglot onto Fern Valley/Hurstbourne Rd while the roads are wet. For even if one has 300+lbs of cinderblock in one's truckbed one's truck's rear-end can lose traction and thusly send one flying side-to-side in a vain effort of regaining control of one's vehicle. And one can feel one's heartbeat for some time afterwards.
It freaked me out, man. I was going normal speed on that turn. And I mean normal normal. Not "normal for me" which is cranking the wheel and hitting the gas as the rear end flies out and loud tire screeching is heard.Thankyou, Lu, for that public service message.

No problem, but its gonna cost ya.....How about enough for a down payment on my 2010 Camaro?:lol:It freaked me out, man. I was going normal speed on that turn. And I mean normal normal.

BTW, if you're ever back in Louisville, you can fix the rust spot on my truck mr. body-and-paint-man.
