    Angry Eldo Accident...

    My eldo 1996ESC was recently in an accident I was clipped by this lady while making a left turn. The damages was the driver's side marker light crushed, side fender bent, front bumper pushed to the pasenger's side and a somewhat warped hood. Of coarse the car looks like sh_t on that side but it seems ot me that I can do a little touch-up repair while I wait for my losey insurance to kick-in, so are there any site or information on this site that relates to body repair. Any information is appreciated. Thanks.

    Sites on body repair?... That I doubt you'll see. Body work takes some skill and a willingness to hit stuff with a hammer.

    Re: Eldo Accident...

    I'm not trying to be a specialist, its just that when I had a 92 T-Bird Sport I did alittle body work based on what I read in the manuel. At the time it didn't seem too hard to me. Did I do a good job??? good enough to where it was exceptable to me. Working on my Cadillac now thats a big deal. I love my Eldo and I wouldn't dare try anything unless I was sure I could do it. Body work does interest me. I see all the time where DIY'ers fix there own cars due to the high costs of the dealers & the mechanics but I know mechanic work is a whole different world compared to body work but I'm sure their are some members who will probably want to know some information even if its just minor fix-it information. I will more than likely wait for the insurance but I will posts some pictures soon. If there are other member here who are interested in body work would you please post your opinion. Thanks.
