Respray after Vandalism HELP!
On wednesday night/thursday morning some toe rag decided to deliberately scratch a stretch of cars, including mine, from the top of the road to the bottom, causing god know how much damage in repair bills, at initial count I saw 9 other cars had very harsh and deep markings to the paint work.
The insurance have given me an excess of £450 for the repairs to the passenger rear panel and to blend in the passenger door, had to gulp a bit at the cost as it didn't look like £450 worth of damage.
To add insult to injury, someone has come back and had a second go along the cars, so now not only do I have 1 4ft scratch along the car, now they have put an even worse one on the same panel and the insurers have tried to tell me as its a second claim its a double excess even though it's the same panel which will need doing. At least after telling them I couldn't afford the first excess I couldn't even consider paying a second one, they backed down and said they would add the information onto the initial claim. I've had an inspection for a quote last friday, now I have to go back in and get a new one for this new scratch, gutted about the whole thing.
The reason why this isn't in the 'Rant Room' is I now need the help of fellow AO's, as I hope I can find someone who knows of or does respraying on there own car who I can pay to do the job for a couple of hundred quid if I supply the paint.
Is there anyone who can help me, the car is up for sale, or was until this happened, and I need to get it all sorted out before the end of June.
Thanks for reading my little escapade, there will be some photos posted soon of the damage if anyone can help out.
Many thanks fellow AO's.
