Holy ****! Did you try and kill a fire hydrant? It looks like it won! But seriously ur gna just have to order new side panels and wheel well and that should be it unless it did major damage and messed up ur trunk?

Holy **** is what I said. And I thought yeah a new panel would be the best way to fix it. But will an insurance company ( progressive ) do / pay for that. The truck is fine it's just the outer shell that got f'd up. I just am scared they are going to tell me bono and paint and hammering the sheet metal. And i slide into the hydrant at like 20. First accident ever and I don't want to be screwed in my stang. I love my mustang I should have gotten one 4 years ago when I was kicking around the idea.

Quarter panel and bumper 4th day I had it. Insurance paid to get it fix and it's just as good as new. 5000 for the work done. 500 dollar deductible. So ins was worth it.

That's the closest pic I've got. Thought I had more since I tinted my windows. But guess not of the back at least. And yes. Right about half way from the front to the back of the window is where they cut it. Doesn't make sense to me. I would of figured before the door. Or the whole thing. I did have swirl marks once I got it back. They had it for a whole day just to buff it and didn't get done till 445 and I went up there at 12 and they said they were buffing it then. So they buffed it for a while. But after a wax you can't tell.

Sorry to hear about your luck brother. I hope this is all the damage that came from this as there are gigantic fines that go with destroying a city fire hydrant... Anyways. From the looks of it your going to need a new rear quarter panel. The impact defiantly stretched the metal so even if you hammered it out you still have to cut all the affected metal out then weld in a patch then bindo and sand smooth. Chances are there not going to do that as its time consuming and barely saves any $ when said and done. It will be easier for them to just buy the part and paint it. Insurance will want to take the cheapest way out and may quote you some BS number, go get more than one quote from independent body shops this weekend so you know what to really expect. If your willing to put some work in then I would start hunting for a wrecked stang to pull the part from then have a body shop paint and install for you. That's the cheapest way to do it.

Are you sure they fixed it Tpost08? It looks like your car is leaning to the right too much.

Pretty sure it's a shading thing because it's black and reflecting the big truck's silhouette. I've seen trucks look like they're leaning just because they're sitting in 45* parking spaces and the angle places with your perception.
