Bad night

Well when leaving a buddies a truck got moved behind me and long story short I popped the clutch to get over the incline instead of easing out and well I now have a broken mirror minor fender well dents and paint scrapes, his trick which I will lay for since it is my fault has a gouge on the right rear fender and fender flair. I won't be doing anything to my car performance wise conserving I'm about to have to shell out serious cash tht I probably Dnt have. It's ganna be one of them weeks.

I feel your pain. Been lucky so far. Don't you have a junk yard nearby where you can pull it and save some $ on the dent repair at least.

500 isn't bad to have yours fixed because that's a lot of damage

You did luck out your car is white normally with white cars they won't have to blend panels cuz the color matches well and its not too much damage and with your mirror check eBay, Craig's, I always find mirrors for around 30 for your year stang

That's not too bad bumper bar might need to be replaced if its bent if not scratches sanded and paint. You lucked out again it's white, no blend needed and just a few hours repair on it remove the upper moulding and right taillight not bad

Bumper was done before me, the faint white mark on it was from mine, that will come off fairly easy I think, and I'm just hoping it will all be fairly reasonable price wise

If you remove the tail light and upper bedside moulding just careful not break anything or you'll have to replace it if your gonna get the truck repaired at a shop I wouldn't recommend attempting bodywork if you haven't done it before it could end up costing more.

At least you are doing the right thing, the guy that backed into mine at a friends house and was cool about, messed up the front bumper told me not to call the cops and insurance people. He said he would pay out if his pocket so I did him I would get a est on how much it would need to be fixed and I called him and he told me he would give me the money. The next day im suppose to meet him he never showed up, changed his number and I ended up fixing it myself. So you are doing the right thing...

Well I just know how bad it would be to be in his situation u know? I'd want someone to pay so that means, if I expect someone else to do the right thing gatta lead by example.

I can def agree with you on that, which this guy did this because it made the bumper ugly. Luckly, I have a uncle that does body work and I him fix it for nothing because he was teaching me how to fix stuff like that so it only cost me like 10-20 bucks for a small thing of paint he had everthing else. I actually saw that guy one night at the same place I was eating out, I wanted to so go over there and punch him but he had is kid with him so I left it alot.

Repraint, reprint, what are they doing to this truck!? And 800 sounds like an average estimate for quality work unfortunately. Body work is ridiculous unless you go to Maaco or something.

I agree body work is something you don't want to go somewhere cheap with it then it could not be a good quality and be wavy, could use poor grade materials and it could crack, or could not do the repair correctly trying to hurry through it. An shops seem to charge a lot but with it broken down it makes a lot of sense
