    Default Everything happens at once!

    Well after finding the dreaded tyre cracks on my NCT's the wife just got back from the doctors looking very sheepish, she finally tells me she's just scraped the bumper against another car at low speed (her fault). Been out to see the damage (in the dark) and it doesnt look too bad, no dents, just paint stripped back to primer on the corner below lights and lots of Silver Ford Galaxy paint, funny thing is when she pulled in to hand over insurance details he drove off? Result!! But got me thinking why? Anyone know if this can be repaired or if its a respray, I know its hard without pics but camera is out on loan

    Ye that was what I thought, to be honest im glad, the last thing I need is an insurance claim, only just got rid of the last one she put on my policy!!! Dont suppose you have a ball park figure for the respray? Think I'll get the Siggy fog surrounds fitted at the same time

    Bummer!, but at least only your car to deal with! As above, sounds like he may not have been driving legally and that he would've been scuppered.

    Sounds like the scrape will be fixable with a ChipsAway type job?

    I really hope so Duncan, I'll be making trips to the tyre dealer and my local repair shop tomorrow, hopefully they can give me an idea of whats needed, a friend has just had a Rover 45 bumper (dont think id have bothered with that car!!) resprayed and reckons it was £356 is it me or does this seem way too much?
