We'll the truck is "totaled". Ill get 3200 payout or 1800 if i keep it. I'm leaning on keeping it. I'll be looking at the front end really close this weekend to make my determination.

I live in Tucson, my truck is a 97. It got like 320+ miles, with original engine and auto trans the floor shifter. It looks like hell but works everyday.

So just to let every one knwon, I decided that I will keep the truck. It is still a solid platform from which to built it up (better) again. I think I can fix the damaged sections. So a new entry to skill building for me... Body Work!

LOL it's what life throws at us...

Keep us updated on the journey back. I would be nice to see the before, during, and after.
Good luck with the rebuild.

I got the fender off. but unfortunately I damaged the antenna. I have another truck from which I can pull parts from. However it has the same fender damaged. I repaired most of the bent attachment sections from where the fender mounts. I did have one tacked bolt get torn off it's FUBAR, but I can deal. I'll have me neighbor tack in a new, one once I remove the bumper. It was not too bad. I just used a ballpein hammer ( both ends ), with lot of patience I got it all straightened out(mostly). When I pull my fender off on the other truck I can attempt to remove the antenna properly this time...

Now if only the insurance company will make me happy. I'm not asking alot, I want a clean title ( no salvage title), and a bit of coin to make the repairs and a pinch for my troubles. They want me to get a salvage inspection and other hurdles before they'll cash me out. Them rat bastards. And I'm going through my insurance, as they will bill the other ( with a markup of course).

I think I'm being reasonable. There is no structural damage to my vehicle. it would be different if there was more damage. It's literally just the fender. GRRRRRRRR!

on another note, when I pulled the fender I found some unknown rust in areas I did not see. So I guess I'll goop it up the Fluid Film to keep the rust at bay. not bad rust ( I live in Tucson) but I want to keep up on it. I love that Fluid Film stuff. It's a liquid lanoline(oil from wool), I use it to clean my tools and keep rust away from my tools. I use it to clean my hands, keeps'em soft. On the rust coast it's used on undercarriages to keep them rust free (as much as you can with all that salt).

still "battling" the insurance company on the whole salvage title thing. Grrr.

I would understand if there was more damage. But it's just the fender and grill and a few other parts. But I guess when a body shop charges 1200 for a dent... I just might be stuck. But still it's like all DIY, I have to go to the get the inspection, ect. But if I scraped it they would just tow it away. By appointment of course LOL
