accident claim help.

Hey guys,

Today at work a guy hit my car from behind and pushed it into another car. Bosses company car AU with a tray so no damage to that car at all.
But my ute has minor rear bumper, tail gate, front bumper and bonnet damage so this seems like a good time for a body kit.

I'm insured with just car and they only want one quote from anywhere i like.
I know a guy that owns a panel shop i was just wanting some advice on how i go about getting what i want. i'm thinking Pursuit kit with T3 front bumper and a high series bonnet.

Would they just replace the bonnet? Has a crease across the front. Do you think they would repair or replace the bumpers?

I cant afford to be to much out of pocket as i move into my house next weekend. So if it was going to cost me more than $1000 i would just get them to fix it.

Pics of damage in my gallery.

Thanks.

Re: accident claim help.

I like to call panel beaters, panel replacers these days, so make of that what you will, plastic bumpers are usually not repaired turfed and new ones fitted and painted.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

"So long and thanks for all the fish!"

Re: accident claim help.

Once the panel replacers (lol) have their quote approved you know how much $$ to work with... If you can source (the panel replacers that is) a bodykit for the same price as genuine originals then there shouldn't be any problems.. I just went through this exercise after my rims were stolen.. I got a price from Holden, so knew what I had to play with...
