if hes doing more than he legally has to then yes, he is not screwing you. paint is cheap and so is a new fender. you might want to pick up a fresh hood though...
anyway, labor will double the cost. remember, your frame is not bent, alignment is still good, and the car still goes forward. the damage is only cosmetic.
He is not at fault, the only reason he hit me was because he was directed wrong. I'm not at fault either. He is doing the labor himself. So if he is doing labor and painting he's doing more than he's suppose to??
I don't even have the money for the corner light and the fender, much a hood. Unless somebody donates me a hood It'll be crooked.
The pillar is bent that holds the door and the fender. So is the piece of frame that holds the frame that is horizontal. The door will be repainted, the hood will be bent back, the pillar will have to be straightened out. The new fender will have to color matched to the rest of the car, new turn signal/corner light.
The parts are $100, plus some more that the body shop has to purchase. The estimate was $600. So basically I got ****ed by the track officials, and the guy that hit me. Now I have to repair my own car for $700 because a cop decided to make another car crash into mine as a bad joke.
