First damage - one month in *sigh*

Of all the fates,
The one that's worst,
Is when your car gets dented first.

On Monday (10-1) we were out food shopping and my dear youngest brother managed to open the rear driver's side door into the side of a passing car.

There was no visible damage to that car, but about 2 inches x 6 inches of my door edge got "folded" outwards to a 45 degree angle.

I stopped at a body shop near work - it's a two day job to fix (bodywork, prep and paint) and their estimate is $450.

I'll swing by another shop near home and see what he says. It'll probably be about the same cost.

And, my brother has no money, so Mom says she will pick up the repair cost.

On the plus side, today I was able to install the window visors before the rains came.

I'm still waiting on the side moldings to come in. Pictures will come after that.


For crying out loud, how the... No I won't ask.

At least your Mom will cover it so the financial hit won't be too bad, just time in the shop.
*cry* my car got shopping cart dings within the first few months, and it's "nobody's fault"
This should be covered by insurance, at least if you have comp and collision. Have you check with your insurance carrier?
It's just under my deductable.
