Cushman vs Pacifica

Sorry to say, the question is about the Pacifica. Hate to bring non-hotrod questions here, but until I get far enough restoring my house my life revolves around only doing car work when I have to.

So last Thursday, I was hit by a Cushman motor scooter.



It's going to be fixed by insurance, but the appointment is over a week away. In the meanwhile, I'm just wondering if this is a repair that would be done on the existing door or a door replacement?

Looks like the damage is localized to the bottom section of the door.
They'll probably fix the door, rather than having to respray a 'new'
door.

The Cushman probably got away without a scratch...?

Damn cycle hoodlums. Was he part of The Mild Bunch? Theme song could be Born to be Mild

Glad no one was hurt and it didn't flex the door enough to mung up the window regulator or break the glass itself

Looks like there is a scratch in the drivers door, possibly from the ape hangers on the Cushman?

There was a chrome plated zinc die cast trim piece on the front of the fender that cracked and fell off, and I think his fender might've bent a little bit.

My flash judgement was that it would be better to not floor it because that would only increase the risk of him getting injured.

In my world that door would get a skin at the very least, without a doubt. Then of course blend the color both ways. Removing all the trim and handles and quarter glass, rear bumper, etc.

Most body shops doing insurance work only replace panels, my bet is that's what they will do.

Looks like the sidecar may have scratched the front door.
But seriously, glad everyone was OK.

I'd be mad if they did less than what Brian (MartinSR) outlined on my reasonably new car-truck thingy
