If you heard what people charge to do retro's you might sign up to do them seriously, backed by insurance. I'm starting to do it and it's baffling what people will pay. Get school done first you are almost there .

After I left the office on Friday I decided I would run to the shop and hang out with some buddies. I got there and Brian's (my new boss AKA Nismo GTR guy) car was not ready for Import Alliance. He was supposed to leave at 9am on Friday and at 5:30pm his car was still not ready. I decided to help throw her back together and then Brian decided to convince me to go to IA with him in the morning. My buddy Andrew and former boss Chris both said that if I went then they would go, so I bought the ticket at 10pm. THEN we went to a Chinese Buffet and left there at 11pm. I drove home and showered and hopped in the bed. Woke up at 4:30am and met Brian, Chris, Adam (red GTR) and Andrew at Ikea and began the long drive. Brian had his corner lights fall out and then we got stuck at a gas station, so we tried to catch up to the group. I either had to get left behind or follow the 2 GTR's and Chris's 370 at 100+ mph down 85, so I chose to stick with the small group lol. Got to the track at 9:30-10am ish, waited in line for an hour and hung out with some friends from Charlotte who had come down the night before. We cruised around and took some rollers, went to a parking lot meet where people were getting arrested and fights broke out, and left. Spent a few hours at the track on Sunday, and made the 5 hour drive back yesterday. My buddy who took an actual camera took some legitimate pictures, but he isn't done with those as of yet. Enjoy the pictures of my car. I totally forgot to take actual pictures of the show cars, but you guys know what to expect at big shows.

Yeah I was worried about that, but I was chilling in the back and all 3 of them have Valentine1's so there was some sort of buffer. Definitely the sketchiest thing I've done to date.

Got off work today and went to throw my bag into the passenger seat, and noticed the beauty on my quarter panel that was a major door ding. I was obviously pissed off, but I had to get to class. I rushed back to my apartment and checked some car doors to see if there was any vinyl from my car stuck on someone else's door, to no avail. Got out of my class and went back to find that the ***** who usually parks beside me, who wasn't there earlier, was back in the lot parked near my car. I went and checked his door, and lookie there, my purple vinyl was still stuck to his passenger door. Cops were called, but the officer didn't help at all. I got the dudes insurance information and am currently waiting for the passengers insurance info, as the dude told me it was his girlfriend who hit my car, so I hope it works out and gets paid for. That is obviously being optimistic, so I am prepared to take them to small claims, I have PLENTY of photo evidence against them, but I hope it doesn't come to that. Not to make this too long, but I guess this is more of a rant. I honestly wouldn't have been so upset if the damage was merely cosmetic, as I should have enough vinyl on the roll to rewrap the quarter no problem. The main thing for me was the massive dent, which I'm not sure can be removed by PDR; I promise that it's worse than it looks. Either way the **** is somehow going to get paid for. Anyways, it's a 'fun' update since I haven't really been up to anything lately.

A good dentless removal guy can pull that out, I've seen MAGIC worked in the hands of a skilled dentless removal tech, things I thought absolutely impossible turned out literally perfect.

Im super glad I found them too. I already have the invoices for both the PDR and the rewrap. Still waiting to hear from the girl.

Since you filed a police report that's good and you have record of it all but you will likely need to get the police involved if it's more than 24 hours because she might be just avoiding contact with you. She might not even have insurance in which case it would fall back on the vehicle owner since he gave her "permissive use" of the vehicle and depending on the state permissive use means it's the owners insurance that pays.

Typically when you loan someone your vehicle and they get in a wreck YOUR insurance is the primary and HIS insurance is secondary.

Well there was no actual report filed. The officer stated that he couldn't file an accident report because the vehicles weren't moving when it happened, and I couldn't claim property damage because there was no intent behind hitting my car. I currently have the girls insurance information, but I doubt they will cover anything without a report. I'm just going to ask her for the amount of the estimates and if she won't pay then I will easily take it to court.
