The joys of living in the midwest The weird thing is I don't think we got any hail at all here in fort. And I'm like 30 mins away from mark and crispy. If my truck got hit I'd lose it

yah Mark and I compared damage last night and unfortunately all 3 of our vehicles have about 4times the amount of damage that Marks has.. Once Mark left my man and I both looked at each other and said "god, I wish that I had Marks damage instead"..

apparently a large portion of my neighbors vehicles have been totalled out.. I'm prepared for the worst news but I'm prepared to see if we can buy them back or something.

its currently lighting and thundering again now.. I'm just so confused because we used to get weather like this when it was super warm cuz thats prime tornado weather..

Its susopsed to be like 85-88 today so i'm assuming the warm front is behind the storm. I agree the storms this year have been bad just not around my house I like nasty weather

Later this morning I have 2 State Farm Adjustors coming to my house to estimate the SVT's.. I'm going to ask a ton of questions about KKB vs Damage and buy back.

I'm assuming that I wont know the total of each damage til later in the mail or by phonecall but who knows... they are working 7 days a week now because of all the hail claims.

wish me luck... eek!

A few weekends ago when we went tubing down the river up north. At the very end of our trip it started to rain so we quickly packed everything up into the cars. No more than 5 minutes later it started to pour and then came quarter size or better hail! There was tons of people still in the river completely unprotected! The weird thing was, it was 80 degrees earlier in the day.

after 3 hours with the adjustor 1 of the SVT's is a total loss - our 2nd SVT's damage is 100.00 less the value of the car. He later asked for a complete mod replacement list in hopes that it will sway corporate in totalling it. We are waiting on a callback w/more information including us retaining the vehicle and its buy back price. We are pretty much in the air on that car though as I'm not too keen on owning a salvage titled vehicle and if the buy back is not super low I think we are going to just surrender it.

The first SVT's estimated blue book is twice the value of SVT #2 and has 3,100.00 worth of damage but needs to be re-evaluated as he forgot to do my trunklid which even has cracked paint on it from the hail.. so I'm thinking that it will be more like 3,500.00 damage. They are even giving me 450.00 to replace my fiberglass hood.

I'll have to talk to my shop more to figure out if this can benefit me as I was going to take the car in before for some bodywork.

argh.. regardless this sucks

well this chapter is finally closed. They cut a check for my damage and declared the second SVT a total loss but we were allowed to buy it back for 645.00 and get the remainder via check.

Anyone have a trunklid for sale? We plan on replacing the hood and trunk on the second SVT ourselves and then get PDR (paintless dent repair) on the rest of the panels to get it back to how it was.

My SVT will get fixed completely... They even gave me money to replace my hood -- just the mesh has a hole in it.. Anyone want to do some bartering with me if I can locate another hood?

Heck yes!

I'm interested in the damaged one if you replace it.....provided that's what you're talking about.

Glad to hear they both weren't totaled and even happier to hear the buy-back was so cheep on the second...


My one spare trunk lid is spoken for by Mark...but i know Kyle has the old lid and spoiler off my SE....i think he's willing to sell.
