Yup. I feel for him. I wasn't crazy about the chrome steps on my truck when I bought it. I always liked the full steps like my '05 had better. But, after seeing this, I'm not so sure they are a bad thing. Looks like it may have a certain protective factor built in.

Wolf, I hate it for you buddy. Keep up posted about the repairs. Too bad you don't live closer because one of my best friends has an absolutely fantastic body shop and his color matching skills are amazing.

thanks guys, it's just good to be able to come in here and post an open acknowledgement that I screwed up and still see all the support from the gang here (one of the things I like about this place best is the people!).

As for why that rock is in that spot... I think that maybe they were just going for some sort of a style or theme in that shopping center since they've got big rocks like that all over in the greenspaces there in some attempts at a decorative arrangement. It's definitely not protecting anything (other than the grass I suppose) so I can't see why they would have NEEDED to put it in that spot.

We have done that same thing on jobs where there is excessive rock. Make landscape walls, place rocks decoratively around sample homes, in landscape areas- anything to get rid of them. It beats loading them in a dump truck and hauling them offsite somewhere, and cheaper. For them, but unfortunately not for you. Hope you get her fixed up right, and soon

Well, finally got the truck in so they could take a look at it. The body shop mgr is estimating that we are looking at somewhere between $1,800 and $2,000 so I am definitely calling my insurance agent for this one. they figure it will take a week to do the work and they are backed up about two weeks before they can get me in (which is fine since that gives me time to get the insurance all sorted out).

*sigh...*

wonder what this is going to do to my insurance rates...

Hey Wolf, I can't speak to your insurance situation but my father-in-law took his brand new 2007 GMC Sierra 1500 through a parking lot when it was new and did almost $5k to the driver's side of his truck. He thought he had the light pole cleared but forgot about the large yellow concrete base which was below his line of sight. He has Nationwide and it didn't raise his rates at all.
