Wreck quote? ... :\

Just rear ended a lady today that I didn't see.. damage isn't too bad but was just wondering how much you guys think this will cost to fix? My deductible is $1000 so highly unlikely to go that way..

Funny thing is I wasn't paying attention cause I saw another person that I knew driving a camaro and I was waving to her.



Thanks

Hard to tell if that can be repaired, or if it needs replaced. Either way it will need paint which will run you at least $400. If you need a new front fascia, that's probably at least $400 more, not really sure what those run. Plus labor for install or repair...could get up there pretty quick.

I had a crack in my rear bumper repaired and resprayed and it was $900. So if it can be repaired, I'd say that's what you're looking at. Probably the same if it needs replaced since there will be less labor in just slapping on a new one, you just have to pay for the fascia.

Maybe search the classifieds for some front fascias?

Not sure.. gettin it checked out soon.

One of the tabs above the fascia that goes into the grill had popped out and was above the grill, so I popped it back under and into the grill's slot. When I did that I heard what sounded like something metal fall off and hit something else...
