Make sure you can live with looking at the hail damage. I find it somewhat
hard. My 86 coupe GT got hailed on last June. It was in perfect condition,
no door dings and the body was mint. The car has been pampered since I
bought it new in 86. Then the hail storm hit with golf ball size hail. Every
panel on the car got hit. The hood, roof and rear trunk received the most
damage. Easily over 100 dents. Looks like someone wnt to town on the car
with a ball peen hammer, except the paint is still perfect. When claiming
the damage with the insurance adjustor, the computer warned him that the
damage was approaching the 'total' limit(75 percent of the value of the
car). It's amazing that a car can go from perfect to totaled so easily and
really there is nothing wrong with the car, except for these small dents.
At this point the car isn't fixed and still has mucho dents. I find it hard
to put $2500 into body work on a car that is worth $3000-4000. I might check
into the paintless dent removal, or maybe just leave it 'as is' and continue
Again, make sure you can live with looking at the damage.
