Crap, Hail Damage...

Just got home today from a work trip. Pulled into the driveway, got the Mustang unloaded. Went inside to relax when a little Tucson thunderstorm started...Which quickly turned into a nice hail storm...Didn't even have a chance to pull my wife's car out and put the Mustang in...

I thought it survived with no damage until I rinsed it and dried it off....Lots of nice little dents. Actually surprised that there aren't any big ones with the size of hail we had. But, I can see them...Ugh....

I will be making a call to my insurance to see how they want to proceed. I did find out that my comprehensive deductible is only $100. I also have a call into a buddy that works for the Ford dealers here in town to see who he recommends for the work...But still...

My car has been in the garage since Thursday morning since I've been off. Haven't had to go anywhere so it's been sitting the whole weekend while it rained here in Phoenix. Glad we didn't get any hail here though. That sucks man.

I had hail damage when my car was only 2 months old. Paintless dent repair, not a drop of paint or body work, car looks brand new! Don't except anything but.

Totally agree with this. Those guys are capable of doing a fantastic job on paintless dent repair

That sucks. We had some hail a couple time this summer and my car was in the thick of it. Once was on the road in traffic and the other was while it was parked at work. Nothing both times. not a dnet or a scratch.
Sadly I was hopping to have some hood damage as i would have liked to use the money to get a new fiberglass hood LOL

Hehe. I know how you feel. If you do go with a fiberglass hood, I can recommend a good shop nearby that did a fantastic job on mine.

Fiberglass will probably be the most common/inexpensive hood material. I went with Cervini, but have also heard good things about TruFiber. Feel free to have a look at my hood on Sat.

The shop I used was Sansossio Auto Couture in Natick. Ask for Phil Jr and tell him I sent you.

I'll be there with coffee in hand!

Just finished fabricating and installing some screens for the hood scoops. Repurposed a $3 gutter guard from Home Depot.

Talked to my insurance company this morning. Have it set up tomorrow for drop off. We shall see in a week or so...I will be going over it with a fine tooth comb...

The adjuster said that this has been a strange Summer this year in Tucson. He has seen more hail damage than ever. Back in June there were a few dealerships hit pretty hard, along with personal cars all over the East side of town...

Demand they use the paintless dent repair technique!
Even if you have to take it to a shop an hour or so away DON'T settle for anything less, unless your ok with body work and paint (cringe)

You could try taking it and using a heat gun or a hair dryer on the dented area. Then put a ice cube and let it melt. Then go get your toilet plunger from the bathroom (first make sure it is clean), put it and see if the dent will come out. I saw a guy doing exactly this a couple of years ago in a parking lot. He pulled out 5 dents and the car looked great. Might save you some money.

GOOD LUCK!

^ That's certainly worth a try. Even better than an ice cube would be dry ice or inverting an air duster can so it makes a freezing spray.

With a $100 deductible, the fact that method doesn't always work and the fact that you have a lot of dings, I wouldn't bother if I were you.
