Default Wrecked the car today

So today i come home for lunch and when I go to leave I didn't realize there is a dumpster on the side of the driveway and with me not paying attention i back right into it. As you can see i broke part of the spoiler, scratched the deck lid, the top of the painted taillight, and the quarter panel. the quarter panel have a little bit of and in dent if you run your hand across it. The scratches should be able to buff out except the one right under the spoiler. I can't believe I did it.

Crappy deal! Get it fixed soon.

I depend on these sensors way too much. I always double check visually as well.

Damn, man, sorry. Expect about 6k damage. It was 4500 for a new rear clip (nonGXP...), deck lid, foam absorber, paint, and labor.

i hope you know that the damage you did could be over 1,000 bucks

if that dent is close to the rear door and if you dont want to blend the door to "save money" its not going to match especially silver

this is what i would do
replaces wing
repair quater= 5 hours @48 a hour
repair deck lid=1.5@48
replace tail light
drop down rear bumper=.8@48

if the rear door is blended all at @48 per hour
r&i door handle=.5
r&i body side molding=.5
r&i belt molding.5
r&i vent glass=1.0
trim panle=.8

paint @48 per hour
deck lid=4-5.0
quater=4-5.0
deck lid=3.0
rear door=5-6.0
all includes preping, blending,

sand and buff=5.0 at 48

so its gonna ad up dude

the deck lid is fine just needs to be buffed out probably the same with the quarter. I was looking at it pretty good today and the quarter doesn't look dented in to bad you can hardly feel or see a difference compared to the other side. As for the spoiler I seen a few on ebay for around $50 bucks. Monday I am going to see if the collision teacher will check it out for me at my school.

Sucks, Man.

We've all done stuff like that, I'm sure. I know I have.

Hopefully, it doesn't cost much more than what bdyman is saying.
