how much will body repair costs run on a 1979 k5, depending on the severity of the damage? last year around october or so, I was making a right turn, checked for traffic, started to go, apparently didn't check well enough, because I hit the right rear panel of a 1982 volvo, resulting in a dent similar to maybe a baseball impact on my car, and a dent that cost 1000$ on the other. thankfully I didn't have my bumper on, because it would have ripped that car to pieces.. I have another dent caused by my friend when he tried closing the door with his ass, so consider that to be an ass sized dent form a 6'11 guy on the passenger door.. I was making a right turn into a parking space and got to close to the van next to me and I scraped his bumper towards the start of my rear wheel well, and there is a little dent there, and that for the most part comprises most of my dents. any idea on what that might cost? I am planning on getting the truck repainted and body work done, and I don't feel like paying a lot, so I'm taking it over to earl scheib at some point, and I think they should be able to do whatever I need, for a relatively low cost... (under 1k) another question I have is.. for those of you who have restored blazers or have done work to them, what have you done with the annoying metal strip things that run along the side and the back around the chevrolet writing and metal looking back? I want to take that off completely.. have any of you done that, and if so, what did the cost run on getting screw holes filled in ?
