If it cracked the windshield, it's SERIOUS hail damage.

There was a video I saw a few months ago about some paintless dent repair guys 
doing hail damage on a late model Honda. It was pummeled and it took them like 
two days to get them all out.  They said it was far cheaper than totaling the 
car.  For some reason I thought the cost was a couple grand.

Re: [MBZ] If it looks like crack it might be crack

2015-09-10 Thread G Mann via Mercedes
Dent Wizard is not a fix all kind of thing.. In my own experience, I bought
a new 2002 Ford F 350 Diesel 4 door, 4X4 pickup, Out the door price a bit
over $58,000, full coverage insurance [of course].

Fast forward 60 days, hail storm, windshield cracked in two places.. 18
hail dents in roof, 22 in hood. New windshield, new hood.. Dent Wizard
repair on roof damage cost ran a bit over $3,400, plus shop labor to remove
/ replace headliner to access bottom of dents. Total dent repair cost for
roof alone came to over $4,200.

The truck bed was saved because it had a fiberglass camper shell on it
which was also replaced. Total bill after two weeks in shop came to a bit
over $11,000.

I would expect shop rates have gone up since 2002, so to repair the hail
damage on this vintage Mercedes, out of pocket costs would run something
above that number, so a $6,000 purchase + say, $12,000 repair and
repaint...

Re: [MBZ] If it looks like crack it might be crack

2015-09-10 Thread Rich Thomas via Mercedes
My neighbor in Houston bought his in-laws' car that had been in a huge 
Texas hail storm, looked like little league batting practice had taken 
place on it.  The inlaws got some few $k from the insco, used that to 
buy another car, and sold the beater to the SIL.  He didn't really care 
as the car ran well, was fairly new and he figured it would get beat 
around more anyway.  It was one of those roundy dodge or chrysler 
things.  i think he finally gave it to one of his kids.

Great information - thanks, Grant.

Once shopped a pristine private sale 1979 450 SL C with some "light" hail
damage.  Very tempting but I couldn't pull the trigger and walked away,
sadly...

Hail damage is a body mans nightmare.

Likely, if it had full coverage insurance [unlikely, due to the age of the
car, few if any insurers would even write a full converge policy] it would
be written off as a "total".

Yet... a $6,000 price is being put on it?

Forget the car.. spend the $6K on what ever drug the guy is on.. Return on
Investment for that would be way better since it apparently causes total
disconnect from reality..

To harsh?
