Hail damage
 
At work the other day when a storm came upon us and dropped golf ball to tennis ball size hail all over my WK2, resulting in $8K in damages. Basically the whole frame will have to be replaced. Has anything like this happened to anyone else here or am I the unluckiest bastard on this whole forum? Less than a month ago, my wife backed the Overland up into a work truck and I had to have the step pad and chrome bezel on the back bumper replaced. I'm starting to think my new ride is cursed.

That sucks! Sorry to hear that, so they are replacing mostly all the body panels huh?

Dang

Those storms have been crazy what I read about.

Will have to have a new roof, hood, part of the liftgate will have to be placed, and all new chrome panels around all the windows, new roof rack rails, etc, etc, etc. Several of my employees' cars were totaled because of it. It's been to hard to keep from crying myself to sleep at night. The storms have been brutal...at least I don't live in Alabama as it seems like they got it the worst.

Sorry to hear this jtark82rx. WOW! these storms are very frightening. I do hope they are done-both for vehicle damage, but most of all for all the death and sufferings they have brought. Hang in there. Just try to think, "this can be fixed..."

you're not unlucky report it under comp damage on your insurance policy and it will get covered head to toe with nothing to go against your insurance trust me it wont jack up your rates at all worst case scenario you will get new panels and a fresh paint job time to go custom :D

Wow. Terrible, but at least it is not structural. How did the windows and pano roof come through it?

My Overland was also damaged in a recent hail storm in Texas to the tune of $5K. Dropping it off this week at the paintless dent repair guy so he can work his magic. No body panels being replaced only trim.

Sorry to hear that Frank, at least you're not alone. Though I hate for anyone's car to be damaged like this. I did claim it on insurance and all is covered but the deductible. The dents are so deep on mine that the appraiser said most of the panels would have to be replaced and will be in the shop for 3 weeks.
