Damn! How did you collect that sort of damage? That's bad luck especially after you got your car looking like it was. I would have thought that's definately repairable. New sill, guard and door probably though. You'll be amazed what a good body shop can do. I had a Vauxhall Nova that got stolen when it was about 3 years old. It came back on a recovery truck looking a bit banana shaped where it got smashed pretty hard in the passenger side but after it had been repaired it was like new again - better than before it got stolen!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh! What happened! Bad month for commodore drivers I think. Does the pictures show the main damage or is there more unshown damage, does she still drive? Looks like a new door, QTR pannel, Sill and side skirt for you.

Ah cheers everyone. A motorbike slid into me and both insurance companies are saying its not their problem...trying to pass it on to the other one.

So im getting a letter of demand organised and seeing how it goes. But if not, I just have to fix my car with my own money I guess :(

Is it possible to have the guard REPAIRED rather than replaced?
I was wondering the same in order to save your VZ flutes. Probably possible to cut the damaged bottom part off under the suage lines and tack the bottom of a good guard on then smooth it all over with filler.

I can help you out with a door for $50, and its white! Iv'e got 2 shells you could cut a sill from. No guards now but that could change by the end of the week. Also if the bike slid into you thens its there responsibility to make good your loss, even if someone else caused the biker to lose it. Get the payout to fix it then buy the parts cheaply and do it yourself, maybe just pay for the sill repair only.
