So I'm tooling around on the forum and what do I find? I find someone who has a few extra sets since he was in the exact same boat as me. Original maker of the bushings hadn't put any out and he was waiting like me.

So cool. He had'em....and I bought a set today. I went over to Blackjack, put my Camaro up on the lift, finally got those two damn allen screws that hold the shifter out, dropped the shifter and installed the brass bushings.

I can't EVEN begin to explain how much of a difference this little mod made. Ho-lee-crap. There IS no play anymore with the shifter while in gear. This is, IMO, the type of bushings that should have been installed in the first place. Yes...there is a potential for a tiny bit more vibration or sound, but that's dealt with by that sticky tar like black stuff that that you wrap around the shifter base and under the car.

Pretty incredible how this little mod was so easy and how much of a difference it made. Shifter feels like a total brand new shifter. I hope Hurst picks this up and only uses these from here on out. It's that important.
Okay, so where do I get mine...

Younger guy who works for a halfway house for the mentally disabled was backing out their 17 person passenger van from their driveway. I was stopped on the other side of the street dropping the wife off at a friends. The driver just backed out and never even looked where he was going.

Well hopefully insurance covers the cost for everything. You literally put those wheels on like 2 weeks ago too

Yep...

New wheel, new tire, alignment.

New fender, new bumper.

Paint fender, bumper, blend into driver door, blend into passenger fender, blend into hood. Repaint custom stripes as well.

After 45 days of curing, will need to go back to Jay's and once again drop it off for opti-coat to both fenders, facia, hood, drivers door, and wheel.

Their insurance (who still hasn't contacted me yet) won't be happy.

Now....the shop I went to said I probably wouldn't get any reimbursement for diminished value as it was "only a fender bender." But, the car itself has never been involved in a documented crash. Yes, I had the rear and front bumpers repainted, but no accident report was made. They were minor scratches that I got fixed. This one is reportable to carfax, etc.

Should I get diminished value and if so, how much? I will have to take into account this is the 1st CGM off the line and is THR #2. To some people, they might not give a crap, but to others, having CGM#1/THR#2 would mean something....resulting in them possibly paint a tad more. Tons of documentation on this one...

Thoughts?

You probably won't get diminished value - BUT you should make the case anyway. Arguing that prior to this the car had a clean car fax.

In regards to the guy's insurance not having contacted you yet - I'd follow up with your insurance and ask them to follow up. I mean assuming a police report was filed it wouldn't be hard to get the guy's insurance information from that. Either or, when you meet with his insurance's adjuster I'd walk them through why the repairs are going to cost $___ (I'd suggest having quotes from multiple places as well).

If you need help following up with the guy's insurance just let me know and I'll reach out to some people.

Police report was made, of course. I took down all the guys insurance. Sad part was....the insurance paper had the advertising divisions number for the insurance company on the ins card vs the claims number. I called and called, left messages, etc. I finally got a call back from that number saying I was calling the advertising section. No kidding....make it harder for people to contact them right off the bat... I had to get the proper ins info off the internet.

I called his ins once and was told someone would be assigned the case, would contact me, etc. No one has. I was told it would be 24/48 hours but they could rush it. Nope. I know it was the holiday weekend, but nothing.

Since no one contacted me, I called my insurance and they said they'd handle it and would contact them/bill them, etc. paying for the repairs out of pocket for now should I need. I already went to a place that does ins adjustments and estimates for my ins co having my car looked at. I sent the appraisal over to them and they are forwarding it to the proper ins co.

Looks like everything should work out. BUT....it was that diminished value that I'm concerned about.

Letting them handle it is the easiest. As far as diminished value, I have no idea what Tx law is, did you ask your insurance adjuster? Don't let them tell you no though, unless they're quoting law, which you can always check. As far as more diminished value as a collector vehicle, that likely won't fly, even though I agree with you.

If you just get one estimate their adjuster may want to look at it, and attempt to low-ball you, that's where it's best for your body shop to deal with them.

^what the others have said. Let your insurance handle it. Worst case is you pay a deductible (depending on your coverage) and when your ins collects from the other company you get the deductible back.

Have no idea on the diminished value crap. That sounds like it would only apply for totaled cars. Yours has an estimated repair cost to make it just like it was and if the body shop needs more they go back and get it.

i don't think he's talking about depreciation - from what i understand, diminished value is paying him for the money he loses by having to report the car as having been in a wreck.

for example: let's say his car (being the very first fully CGM Camaro ever produced & the second THR package installed) could've pulled $40,000 if he sold it last month because it was in "near perfect" condition. now, after this damage gets fixed, it will look the same, however, he might only be able to get $35,000 because it has an accident on record.
