Cool Inspiration To Fix Your Car (Side Swiped)

So i'm driving home on a Saturday night around 9 o'clock. Out of nowhere I see a pickup truck crossing all three lanes and straight into me. Couldn't change lanes because there was car on the next lane. So here is a little Inspiration to all of you that love your car and would give it away.

Next morning took pictures.




After finding a body shop that would fix it We began the long process of fixing the car.
Replacing the quarter panel.

Replaced Quarter panel and door:



Getting It Ready For Paint.




Went out of town for a week and came back to a finished car.



It took about a month to get it all done but it was worth it. Car brings me so much joy.

Question people ask:
Why I didnt sell it.
A) Love the Car
B) It has 30K on it.
C) My First Car

Why did you paint the right side quarter panel? Was it damaged as well?

Insurance covered this work?

initially we needed to paint one side (driver side) but after talking to the painter he advised me that the car will not blend well with one side looking new and the other side with some wear. In the end we repainted the entire car.

Yes the Insurance covered it all.
