So I got hit this month and I'm going to settle with Poland Springs. What they offered me will cover everything. I go to 2 shops for estimates and both places say the same thing. I really don't want to cut into a car this nice. I can repair it instead of replacing. What do you think....pop out what he can and bondo or a new quarter with less bondo. The difference in price would certainly help me for Christmas tho.....I don't want bondo but either way I will have some. The guy says he can do it perfect even tho I told him what a prick I am when it comes to my car.....so tell me, judging by the damage should I get a new quarter or just have it fixed?

Idk...if he says he can do it perfect than I would just do that. I would do almost anything as long as cutting wasnt involved, but thats just me:eek:hnoes:

This place is self insured so what they put on the table today was 3700 cash. I told them I will let them know tomorrow and we will talk. To replace I got estimates for 3200 and 3400. To fix, I got 1900. I also need for them to pay up for a rental car for a week
