    Yeah they have full comprehensive so they should be paying, was actually eyeing some redlines off. All depends on what the insurance company says

    Hate to be a nay sayer, but that damage on the side suggests serious damage to the chassis rail... The car will need to be straightened and re-aligned and you have to remember than an insurance company will value it as a 30 year old corolla (ie worth about 1.5k) I would be prepared to be told it has been written off

    Yeah that is the conclusion me and JoJo came to. Gunna print out some for sale adds of Sprinters with similar mods thought and try and prove to them what the car is actually worth. Because if I was selling it when it before it was hit I would probably have been looking at 8-9 grand. But fully prepared to be reemed by the insurance company.

    Hey mate,

    I actually had a car accident - my fault. Car is comprehensive. Anyways, NRMA said it was a right off.
    Damage was so minimal- needed a new headlight, news bumper and bonnet. so it was fcked to say that it was a right off.

    But i did exactly what you did and appealed for a reconsider. I put together about a 5 page document with other cars of similar mods etc and pretty much said it wasnt just car but hobby and tried to make it seem like it was really important.... He reconsidered and valued the car more than 6 i think...it was a couple of years ago but yeh. Gave it a shot and it worked.

    so try it out...wont hurt.

    For body work I've been to J-Racing in Fyshwick. Jerry is very reasonable. I've only paid him cash so maybe that is why he doesn't charge me as much. I've taken my Polo to get a body kit sprayed and fitted on, scooter fairings fixed, panel beating. All top quality craftsmanship. We also have mutual friends and I always point people to him so that may also be why he is very reasonable when he charges me.
