A bloody gatepost jumped out at me from nowhere !!
Sorry to hear, that looks quite bad but a decent body shop can fix that in no time.
PS don't bother with your insurance, will be under £300, I did a similar thing to my old car. Easily done in a seconds lapse of concentration.
I managed to scrape both sides of my van in one entranceway a while back.
I got it wrong going in, got it wrong getting out.
It was a lot narrower than it looked.
But I am lucky in that I don't really care.
I'm searching the tinterwebnet for a replacement door in smoke silver as that seems to be the best option at the moment.
Bad luck mate-hope you get it sorted
Stu , I can easily get you a Sacco panel from one of the cars breaking up here . I presume the door would need paint and is too bad to polish out ? Hard to tell from the photo .
Bad luck. Don't suppose the gnome in the back seat thought of warning you about the gate?
Sorry about the scrape! I changed a door on a Jazz I sold for a friend a little while ago. £100 against nearly £500 for painting the side. No dents and at firsts glance it looks fine, but it really is a problem to get the metallic colours to match!
If you look in the reflection you can see a Mercedes star!
Metallic silver--- tell me about it!
Ouch, replacement door is a good option but as others have said colour match may be tricky it's quite likely to look a little out.
I changed the front wing on our W203 after a light bump to another 744 Brilliant Silver one it didn't look quite right for a while - when it went in for it's warranty rust repair I paid extra to get it resprayed & blended in.
It looks to me like you have an Alabaster Silver Jazz with a Storm Silver Metallic rear door!
We have a Storm Silver Metallic Jazz which is how I know.
My misses scraped her wheel arch a few moons ago and I used a place who repaired and matched it perfectly - you cannot see the repair at all so it is possible.
No, I did check the paint colours were the same! (Allegedly)
But then I spotted this one in town today with exactly the same disease! Maybe it's catching!
I'll bear that look in mind should we need the door respraying!
Hi Derek. I would really appreciate that mate. Could you get me a price please
I have managed to push the dent out from behind and used a small piece of wood to manipulate the dent out on the lower crease. It just needs a skim of filler and some paint now. I'l prep it all myself then get a price from a good place I know to paint it and blend it in. I may as well get a few other area's touched in whilst I'm at it too.
