So after being hit two times in two weeks in the same spot. I have received the insurance money for one of them and decided I wanted to fix the car my self. The hardest part will be painting the fender... It would save me an ass load of cash, the dilemma is I can pay to have it fixed and get it done sooner, or find a place to paint my fender and get it done sometime. The hardest part is finding a place to do it all at, its a pain in the ass trying to find a garage... UGH. so if any of you got some input on if i should pay or or do it my self let me know. Oh and as an after thought, I do know how to paint lol.

If you know how to lay down automotive paint then yeah, just do it all yourself. How badis the body damage? And where did you get hit.I mean, if you just got hit on the fender and it is less to buy a new fender, paint it, then put it on by all means do it. But even if it comes down to it and you need someone else to do it, you'll still save TONS of money if you buy all the parts yourself, and then prep them for paint and just have a shop throw some paint on there then install it all yourself.

Talk to Matt Andy. You guys see him every weekend and I am sure he could get a small job done like that fairly quick.

It sounds to me like you are only worried about painting the fender. I am very good friends with a guy who has professional experience in painting and a garage to do it in. He is very laid back and i am sure that unless someone is doing it for free, you wont find any cheaper than him and his work is great!
pm me if you are interested. sorry about our bad luck by BTW. idiot drivers out there.
