Happened to me in May of 2011 in DWF area of Texas when i was there for a meeting. Tornado nearby that ruined my Versa. The hood and roof were so bad they had to be replaced. PDR guy did a great job on the rest of the car. Today there was hail storms nearby. My girl and i were watching the weather and local Doppler radar and got in our cars and drove to a nearby car wash and parked there for damage protection. Hail sucks!!!!

Sorry to hear you got hit, it's obvious that several of those dents will not be repairable by paintless dent removal. We had several large hail storms in our area last year, a few were baseball and larger hail stones, some were softball size and cars were totaled.

Be patient and picky when it comes to repairs.

I live in NE Georgia and saw that shit coming my way.......so I took the Camaro out of the carport knowing that there would be a good chance that 3 1/4" hail would just go right through it, put it in the heavily fortified quanset hut/garage along with the Wrangler and felt a lot better.
Well, as luck would have it, all that shit broke up before it got here and we basically got some rain........better safe than sorry....
I have had it with this crap! Friggen baseball size hail and tornados! This sux! Over the last few weeks I have made a solid decision to move back to Vegas! I will take earthquakes over this crap any day! I hate tornados!

It should be no problem for your insurance to cover it. What will suck though will be the bad paint job you end up with. Demand perfection. Instead of filling in the holes see if you can get a replacement hood.
