Glad Nicole is safe and sound and Baby Boy Cy wasn't in the 80 at all.

Sheetmetal is expendable!

It'll get "straightened" out...

My 80 story is that Suzie and I were on our way from a funeral at Fort Logan to Park Hill Golf Course for the reception afterwards in the 80 when I noticed the oil pressure gauge reading about 1/10" off the bottom marker. The truck is out at Christo's being diagnosed today.
Must be "blown!" You did put oil in it right?

The DNC went good, so hopefully things will be back to normalish...my poor son had to get stitches for his circumcision, he got thrush, jaundice bad enough to have him on the lights at our house, then the DNC and now the cruiser wreck... It's been a busy two weeks.

but yeah, it's kinda tweaked. The hood rubs on the front, doesn't shut right. The door doesn't shut the same or as easy at all. All the other doors easily and smoothly lock in, this one doesn't anymore. It's not rubbing on the fender at all so something else is goofy. lights are falling out of it, and a new vibration is coming through the steering wheel that wasn't there. THe check engine light came on (coincidence or?) the a/c lines I'm sure just got smashed/split. the framehorn on the end is bent a little. I'm a little worried about the doors/hood being off mostly.

The ladys insurance is one I've never heard of so I can't wait to fight this one. Here's a few more pics.

Nope, not Juans either it's Auto owners or Auto group or something like that. I"ve never heard of it, so I hope it's ok. I'm going to have my bodyshop friend come take a look, he mainly does paint but I'm sure he could give me some more pointers.

still waiting to hear from them.

You are good as gold if it is Auto-Owner's Insurance Company. We have had our car policies with them for years and they are a very upstanding company. Still, anytime you are dealing with insurance companies you can usually count on at least one headache or two. Good luck and again, I'm glad your wife was safe in a Land Cruiser.

Heres an initial quote from a bodyshop in town. How's it look? I haven't turned it in to her insurance, but wanting opinions.
