Might I suggest... Velcro for those fog lights.

Glad it wasn't worse!

Finally found a shop willing to work on it and got it towed. Initial estimate came in at $8k using new parts, but they found control arm and tub issues after removing the bumper. This is being filed with Hagerty, who I just signed up with in December. They've already approved the original estimate and the body shop is now going back for approvals on the newly discovered damage. I had one 10 minutes call with Hagerty at the start of the claim and they've been working direct with the shop, so no complaints there.

Too lazy to host photos, so here's a link with the newly discovered damage.

It would help if it could be made to rain as well. Full attention on the road. Guaranteed." -Jack Baruth

Did the insurance cover your pants.

That's what wives are for? They are covering a $500 interior detail, so that's cool.

Welp, now the estimate is $26k after tax. Frame pulling, etc. Didn't feel like that hard of a hit, but the skirt of the bridge wall went under the bumper and tore up the front of the tub and control arms. Weee!
