Eh. Just bash it back into approximately the right shape and replace the light. College kid right? He drives what rolls, if he doesn't like it he can get a job and buy his own car... -Curt From: Dan Penoff via Mercedes <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: Okie Benz <email@example.com> Cc: Dan Penoff <d...@penoff.com> Sent: Friday, July 17, 2015 5:39 AM Subject: Re: [MBZ] S500 Ouchies I looked there as well. They had a few coupe hoods, but the price was around $1000 not including shipping. Fenders were around $300. So that’s $1300 right there without shipping. Then the cost of getting them painted, which I’m thinking might be around $500.
Now we’re up to $1800 minimum, certainly more. That’s for a car with 280k on it that I paid $3000 for three years ago. The numbers just don’t work. Oh - don’t forget the headlight, too. That’s maybe another $200. Thanks for the suggestion, however. It was worth a shot. I look a this as a blessing in disguise, as it will allow me to get the boy into something a little more modern/safer and that has better gas mileage. He’s driving about 75 miles a day for the next year to attend school, so I was getting concerned about costs and the miles adding up on a car that’s approaching 300k.
