    I Hurt My Car Today :(

    Well today I was down my pals garage and I normally put my car in the garage when we go out,but today he had too many cars in the garage so I started to put my car up against the wall next to his car trailer outside but I never knew the tow hitch was sticking out,I knew I had plenty of room near the trailer but he had the tow hitch side sticking out and I reversed into it .I am totally guttted .Any ideas on a cost for this repair? Thanks

    Sorry to hear about the car mate, But it could have been worse. It could have been the rear quarter pannel. If its only your door, your best bet is to go and find another one at a breakers. Swap the trim over and have it sprayed the same colour.

    If you find a door, maybe £80?
    Have it sprayed, about £100?
    Hang it yourself. £0

    or you could take it to a garage and let em charge you a fortune. Just go and get a quote and see what they say?

    haha you'd have fun hanging the door! Have you ever done that yourself? I'd rather get it done properly!

    Yea, I have done it on a Vauxhall Corsa and on a Ford Orion. Cant say ive done an astra yet but I can garente it wont be to much off a challenge for me. You shouldent underestimate the skills of the forum members. We dont all pay a garage to do our modding, some of us have a little skill.

    ooh nasty, but it looks like you have just damaged the door skin, so hopefully shouldn't be too expensive to fix :?

    I'd get someone to do it for you if you aren't confident about doing it yourself.

    Looks nasty, unlucky matey

    I'd say get it re-skinned, easy enough for a bodyshop to do, then just re-spray it. Shouldn't cost alot !

    Could have been worse !!
