The day before last my GSI rolled off my drive, over the road, down the neighbours drive over the road and it a wheely bin and concrete post (just a glancing blow to the post mind), at which point i managed to run after it, jump in and stop it before it went through their back fance and dropped into the garden below them. This resulted in the front bumper scratched in numerous places and the n/s/f panel being pushed in. I also have some minor damage to the o/s/r panel and around the arch and just onto the door, to look at that you wouldn't notice its only when you get up close and personal your can see the scuff marks and i think it is slightly pushed back but only very slightly, not even 5mm tbh. Obviously the front is a different matter, you can't miss it! I have been considering having a respray but only want a blow over as wanting it leaving black sapphire. anyone any ideas as to prices for a blow over? there is no rust anywhere but obviouly this panel needs sorting. i was looking at trying to find a black sapphire panel to bolt straight on as i don't know if it would be worth my while going through my insurance as my excess is £250, i have seen some panels ranging between £30 - £50.
