Re: over 500 dents from hail in ny

Without pics it didn't happen.

Welcome to my world. I've lived in Colorado for 24 years and I've had hail damage on every car I've owned (9) in that time. After awhile, you just stop worrying about it and drive ... and Mythbusters did a test showing that a car with golf-ball dimples gets better gas mileage than the same car without.

Craziest thing is my wife always parks in an indoor parking lot. She had a meeting at a different location that morning so by the time she got to her hospital where she works, all the indoor spots were taken. She had no choice but to park on the street. The only day she parks on the street is the only time it hails. It's so frustrating.
How do they replace things such as the top rails and rear pillars? They actually cut them out or they just sand down to bare metal, bondo and paint?

Does the whole vehicle get a paint job to make sure it blends?

Sorry to hear of all the damage it caused!

Re: over 500 dents from hail in ny

I wonder if you can ask your insurance company about a "loss of value" payment. I've heard of this in situations where it was a collision but not sure about comp damage like this. The rationale is basically that even if your repair are really really good, there was still significant damage (and repair) to your car that will show up on a VIN report which depreciates the resale value of your car. Might be worth while researching...

EDIT: Just found this on another site (not certain of the accuracy)...
"Unless you live in the state of Georgia you can not collect diminished value from your own insurance company from a hail claim.
As far as diminished value from the collision, it would depend on the extent of the damage. If the damage to either vehicle is greater than $2000.00 then you may have a claim for diminished value."

Re: over 500 dents from hail in ny

What a bummer. We had this happen to my wife's car last year, you might want to take it to a PDR place on your own to see what they can do. The insurance company and even my trusted bodyshop said all those panels had to be replaced and repainted, but my PDR shop got every last dent out without ever having to paint, and that included the aluminum hood on the Prius...

IMHO you're better off with PDR and keeping the factory paint.

Re: over 500 dents from hail in ny

My dent guy is so good they fly him from the west coast to all over the states. A dealer in Oklahoma retained him for a month to remove the hail dents on a fleet of their cars. The damage and work to undo it, and the results, were un-freaking-real. I can provide the guy's name upon request as I wouldn't want to be guilty of advertising.

Re: over 500 dents from hail in ny

Yeah pretty much the truck needs to be painted. PDR in certain places will work but there are certain dents that is very bad and needs a lot of work. I'll see if I can go by the shop tomorrow and take a few pics.

Re: over 500 dents from hail in ny

That's probably the best route to take...do as much pdr now and then minimize the amount of filler
