got my car fixed today, well sorta

well i got this out of my car today and for free too: its so nice to be able to open that door now



took it to the body place and they used a big screwdriver and "the claw" seem like nice ppl

it will eventually need work and repainting in that section but the good news is i dont need to replace any bodypanels, and the estimate is only $350

it gets even better, the guy does side work on teh weekends for cash that dosn't go through the insurance companies and for people that are low on cash(this woudl be me)

this is good b/c the door was messed up before anyways from the previous owner(it was sitting too low and looks like the put the jack in the wrong place and bent it up.

Did you get a price for a new fender panel? I've had similar damage to my car and I went to a body shop. They pulled out their big catalog and according to that a new fender was $120. I'm just curious as to whether that's a fair price or not.
