Fu#ked up day!

So earlier today I was exiting the interstate and while coming down some ******* in a dodge status rear end a vehicle in front of me and since it was raining when I applied the brakes my car slid and I ended up hitting him and We both got a ticket for following to close which is a bunch of bull***** . Irony is he was able to drive his rust bucket home and my baby had to be taken away on a flat bed!

Sorry to hear it brother. Hopefully you'll get a fat check from insurance.

Best of luck.

Re: Fu#ked up day!

Even with the upgrade option now available, the situation is still a PITA to deal with. Just hope for a total.

Thanks you guys still waiting on an adjuster to come out and inspect it and deem it unroad worthy and continue with the claim process! Stupid *** USAgencies has the worst claim process definitely dropping them after they pay out!

Damage to total has to be 70% of the value or more.

Sounds like it hit harder than it looks. Take it to the best shop you can find just to make shur the cabin is not warped or something. At lest your gonna get the highest estimate. It'll make the choice to fix or upgrade a little easier. And I don't recommend a Ford shop. Did air bag blow ? If not make it b 4 adjuster sees it.

I don't know if u got the income but I rather not even making my insurance pay for the damages bc its going to go up really high for the next 2 years ...i found a guy here willing to sell me his hood for $150 .... And today I went to my godfathers body shop and said he could fix it for $200 & I don't even have to buy another hood..... I spent everyday for two weeks checking craigslist under mustang parts and believe people do got parts or there

---------- Post added at 10:01 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:58 PM ----------

P.s. I went and got estimate for my hood and a place told me $2100 & $1700 and both telling me it wasnt fixable and that I had to buy a brand new hood for $1300 from the ford dealership

That was my poi.t is you could probably get a nicer aftermarket one for cheaper. As long as you can get the shop to work with you.

Sorry bro.. Your hood is very noticeably the wrong color. You need to get them to fix that. That is; unless it doesn't both you. In that case then congrats on getting it all fixed!

I'm mean not really it ain't like its a shelby cobra or gt , I mean my hood was shaking on the freeways and wanted it fixed asap
Plus I still have to get the door ding fixed too bc my idiot neighbors can't keep their kids inside the house instead of messing up peoples cars and I can't blame them bc I ain't got proof
