Easy fix? I have no idea where to start. Hood roof is dented up pretty bad. Back window is gone. Trunk bent up pretty bad too. I'm pretty pissed because the city decided to cut the roots earlier this year. I think thats why it fell.

d'oh!

that sucks.

you could either cut a top off a junker 510, or make a convertable 510.

In either case it would seem that it's the city's fault for it falling over, but i wish you luck getting anyone to pay for it. your homeowners insurance is more likley to pay than the city.

Thanks guys, yea i'm still waiting for a reply with my Ins. I was thinking the same about that chopping the roof thing and even making it a couple inches lower or something. I'm gonna go take some pictures with the tree off of it now. They just came the other day to pick up some of the stumps

What do you guys think they would do at a body shop. Bang out the dent or replace the whole roof? Or even cut out the dent and weld some sheet metal or something? I'm calling my Ins tomorrow morning they are lagging on getting back to me already.

Oh man, that sucks. Chopping the top a few inches would involve custom glass and stuff, will probably be kind of expensive. Could have been worse, could have totalled the car. And park that baby in the garage or something from now on :)

Yea once I started to think about it, the costs could end up being pretty high. I'm gonna look into getting the roof skin. Not sure if its going to be worth fixing or just finding another one all together.

Hey thanks for all your support guys. The fellas at 510realm.com helped me out a lot. Suggested I get inside and simply kick up with my feet. Most of the dents are pushed out back in place. Suprising the car doesnt look half bad considering. I'll post some pics of the results
