    Sorry to hear that.
    Did the guy have insurance?
    Unless I was getting a lot of cash that could be used towards something else on the truck after the repairs, I'd let a body shop do it with only GM pannels. Bet his car doesn't look so good.

    Whatever you do, DONT buy from JC whitney. I bought some panels from them and I took me twice as long to install them because I had to straighten and rebend their body lines which didnt line up. I also got 2 panels with large dents in them.

    That really sucks.
    Hope he had insurance and it pays for it all

    Pre-Dented panels……Now that’s a very cool concept.

    <font color=red>One</font color=red><font color=blue>Left</font color=blue>
    Have <font color=red>K5</font color=red>, will travel.

    That bites! Not that it matters, but what was the other vehicle and how bad was the damage on it?

    My 89 was hit in the parking lot a few years back. It was a hit and run. At least you got this guys insurance info, right?
