The car hasn't moved an inch from it's spot among the other wrecks...

I drove past it today, running out of rental car time.

No problem there! You call the body shop tell them your concern and ask them to extend the rental car before it expires.

IF they tell you it runs out and you will have to pay any part of it you then go to the insurance company adjuster explaining the situation to them. IF they say you have to pay any of it you climb right up his / her ass reminding them you are the claimant and you went to their pro shop.

Sometimes the insurance company will shut off the rental making the body shop responsible for taking too long.

Either way you are the claimant and have the right to have the rental car until your car is done without cost to you.

I love this forum! Where else can you get so many people in so many varied professions who are willing to help each other and offer so much expert advice and help?

All of you are some of the most helpful and caring folk I've had the pleasure to be associated with.

Now; back to Matthew's car...

Vern's input has certainly put my mind at ease.

I've never had to make an insurance claim like this in my life, and I've dreaded it. I hope I never have to again, but having somebody "in the know" about it has been a big comfort.

I've been watching this closely, I'm in a nearly identical situation right now.

My Fiancé's car got lightly wounded last month, and the car has been at the body shop for about 2 weeks now waiting on the insurance company of the dude that backed into her to get off their asses. The body shop is run by a family friend so I know it will be taken care of properly, but still, driving around in a clunker Nissan for several weeks gets old fast.

They called me and said the car is now in the shop... within 1 hour of taking off parts, they found more damage and have submitted a "supplemental claim" to the insurance... I said no problem, take your time, keep me posted.

I'm in a zen-like state, thanks to Vern.

You are welcome. I had been hoping that after 46 years of doing this, I'd be able to actually help somebody! Lol!

I will be into you for advice about that trucking thing we talked about At TWOs.

Oh and from here out, don't ever tell a body shop to take their time. You will inadvertently take your car off the hot list. There are always customers on them to hurry hurry hurry. In their face all of the time. Yours can get pushed back if you are not in a hurry.

You tell them no hurry about three times you will be back in a month asking how to get them to get back on it.

True! Just happened to me but it's in my favor. The car was in storage so when I asked a shop to finish sanding and buffing it out they said they could do it but it might take some time. I told them as long as the car was indoors my insurance would cover it so I'm not in a hurry. They assured me they would put it in the basement and work on it a panel at a time. So now I'm saving $90.00 a month which will help pay for their services!

Vern:

Do you have any of these ?


Ford N807389S


I need a whopping quantity of one . . . . I broke one when I installed the L.E.D. headlights in my pickup . . . and they are sold in quantities of like 500+.

I'm wondering if this is something that a bodyshop would have in stock and I could go buy just one.

Oreilly's sells them in packs of 5 or 6. They come in standardized sizes like 5/16 or 3/8" IIRC.

Perfect . . . hadn't through of that.

Thanks !

By the way . . . I tossed a set of 6 L.E.D. headlights in the new F-250 Super Duty. Living out in the Catskills means a lot of late night, backroad driving.

These new lights will cut the paint off a wall.

I tried those Supernova LEDs in my Jeep and they were pretty bad. I think it has a lot to do with the reflectors. The stock halogen bulbs were about the worst I've seen in a vehicle made in the past 30 years. I wound up putting in some JW Speaker LEDs. I'm pretty happy with those. The originals in the Jeep were downright dangerous.

Court I have several types of those plastic push pins. Guarantee I won't have that one. As for the companies producing them, self perpetuation states that they be as varied as ignition keys.

Try a body shop at a Ford dealer. They likely will give you a factory fit original one. Not worth invoicing for the body shop.

Parts department guy has to charge eight bucks by the time he looks up the vehicle and part numbers to sell an individually wrapped 10 cent part. Lol!

Also try an automotive paint supply store for the clips. They will have an assortment of choices which will give you a better chance to get the right size. After all, they’re the ones that sell to the body shops. Won’t be the cheapest way but not the most expensive either. Should be able to get a dozen for the price of one at the dealer.

I've gotten them here in the past when I needed a few. http://www.clipsandfasteners.com/default.asp

Get a small box full for the price of a couple at the dealer.

I buy those body shop supply assortment now and again. Ok pins for used parts. But if you want a new engineered fit like you do in a head light fixture, get the Ford part.

The hole size is no big deal, but the pin set depth is critical, as is the size and style of the head. I see in the picture above that there is no under head wide fit alignment shank.

When these hold a headlight in place, not just a trim panel, it is important that it is dimensionally correct to keep the headlight from shaking on hitting road bumps.

On a one of ten pins in a bumper cover application the aftermarket pins generally fit well enough.

Those Mongo's air deflectors are the bee's knees! It's amazing how such a small thing can completely change the experience of driving the car.

Thanks again.

I visited my car night before last, it was sitting outside the service bay with the nose off it...
