    It's amazing what they can do with hail damage these days. You will never know it was there.

    I took it by some shops & they said "no way jose on PDR" & I tried talking to the adjuster about it AGAIN. He just reiterated take it to the shop, let them file a supplemental to get the money to do it right.

    (Realization as I was typing this . . . )
    I think they cut a lowball check hoping I'd just take it & not get the car repaired. The only way to get more money is to actually have the car repaired. Now it all kinda makes sense.

    I've got an appointment with Sewell Cadillac Body Shop 5/16 to drop it off & get repaired & will let them deal with the insurance company about getting all the monies.

    I went with Sewell because after talking to them, they'd make it like it was from the factory. Also, they could address some of the little things like one of the interior panels retaining tabs broke. They'll likely replace it because they'll have to remove the interior to replace the roof.

    I figure I can just put on a custom hood later if I *STILL* want it. I can take care of the spoiler in the driveway.

    Glad to hear that your V will be properly taken care of. Hope it comes back in better shape then when you bought it.

    Yeah, I hope so too. Overall, it was in really good condition & the only paint blemishes were smaller than a pencil eraser in about 5 different spots. The only thing I'm concerned about now is if they'll repaint the WHOLE car if the replace everything BUT the left rear quarter, front/rear driver side doors.

    Agreed.

    I was with an insurance company for many years, and when I had a car stolen (my first SHO with 9k on the clock), they tried to low-ball me until I presented them with a half dozen other cars similar to mine that were going for more. Really erked my butt, let me tell you.

    No, just a car with 75k on the clock, it's started slipping some. Took it to the dealer I bought it from & they won't cover it under the powertrain warranty as it's a "wearable part, like brakes".

    Dropped the car off at Sewell yesterday & got a call from Sewell today. They've filed a supplemental with my insurance agency. The agency is going to come back to inspect or something.

    Thus far, Sewell has said:
    new hood
    new roof
    new passenger door skins
    new trunk decklid
    new right front fender
    new unibody side panel (rear quarter to a pillar)

    Minor PDR on the driver side with a few dents. There are a few dents on the driver side roof rail/rear quarter/front fender. I kinda hope they replace the left front fender so they have to repaint the driver side. There's a couple of very minor scuffs/scratches on that side I'd like to see disappear.

    Pretty amazing story. I sold a 95 Impala SS to get my first V in 2005.... Fast forward to april 22... had my 05 V and my 3 week old 2011 Diamond edition V wagon in the driveway...... HAIL... nailed both of them... PLUS the tornado north of here took out my 24 foot enclosed car trailer..... good news is.. paintless dent removal did an incredible job on both cars.


    Are you in St Louis?
