Time to Guess

K’den.  Here’s another photo, from the front side of the damage.

1 Sept4a

And for a refresher, the back side:

1 Sept3

That da kine in the top photo is broken.  So it has to be replaced. And to fix the fender, whoever fixes it has to take off the fender. Oh yeah, and the front door, too. And oh, the rear view mirror. And the headlight. And the door handle. Because my kawila has a clear coat finish, they have to match everything. Who would’ve ever dreamed all that?  But the second estimate I got today from my dealer said the same as our auto body shop.  The only difference is a higher labor charge from the dealer; otherwise, the estimates are almost exactly the same.

And as a good friend of mine pointed out, the towing company should be paying for a rental car for me, too.  Because it’s gonna take 3-4 days to fix everything.

K’den. Guessing time foa realz, not including the rental car.

      I know, yeah? I’ll wait for more guesses… then let you know. Where I’ll take it to get fixed will depend on how easy it is to rent a car for 3-4 days; I still have to compare the estimates, too.
