ok here it is: i had just purchased my 86 supra and had it for about 3 weeks i had cleaned the engine compartment and replaced a fuel dampner, silicon vacume lines and cleaned out the trottle body. Then i moved on to cleaning and waxing the body. this car has original paint and was in great condition. So here is where the real story starts: two of my friends and i pull up to our school and just as we were leaving i hear a loud crash and see this piece of shit geo slammed into my rear side panel the one just behind my door and now the door dosent open and my original paint is screwed. He wasent even looking as he pulled out and just floored it. the dent is about 2 and a half inch deep and about 1and a half foot wide. very little to nothing happed to his car THis kid dosent have insurance and has to pay me almost 2 grand from his pocket. The thing is he was gitting mad at me because i took it to a good body shop and dosent want to pay the larger amout it will take to get a quality job; in addition i wont have a car for almost a month due to the body shops busy schedule needless to say i am pissed :mad:

yeah thats a good suggestion about the rental car. he would probibly start crying if i told him that, and now hes looking around at other shops and expects me to take my car there and have it looked at according to his schedule, i am getting sick of him hes acting like such an ass. like he looks and the dent and all trys to convince me its not that bad. And look i cant even open my door. If i get any more lip from him i am ganna treaten to sue him

really he should be thankfull i have been as cooperative as i have, we have talked to his parents they are making them pay out of his pocket, they are just looking for the cheap way out, they have 7 kids and the father works at a state prison needless to say that he isnt wealthy.


Something else to keep in mind: A freshly painted passenger side just won't blend into a 17 year old paint job. I guess that they're going to have to paint the entire car so it matches the new body work. Ooops on his part.
arnt paint jobs pretty expensive? as in like 2000$$ + i know this kid will have a heart attack when i demand this, but now the thing is the insurance companys will only pay so much before they want to total the car. cheap bastards and one of the shops i went to said that the repaire costs go over the amount the requires to be totaled

yeah the paint job i had on that car is a metal flaked silver with a clear coat, thats an expensive paint job, and hay after haveing that paint i am not going to go back to a cheapy. O and how would you guys feel about having a bondo job on your supra?? i dont like the thought at all. This kid thinks that the total amount of money the work is ganna cost is going to be under 1000$$ i keep on telling him that its going to be over 2000$ and he just wont take me serious. Once i get my brake pads on i should be on my way to getting the car fixed.


O and have any of you guys used black bumper( its like a plastic refinish
) on the front bumper i am thinking about painting it with that and doing a clear coat do you think that will work :?:
