Of course I would, I actually puked in his uber on Thanksgiving eve...paid him the $150 charge the next day. Sh*t happens, and a common theme I guess is alcohol plays a small role lol... Live and you learn, the Car is a just a machine and much easier to replace than someone. My car will never touch the asphalt in that city ever again. I should have driven the beater but the Camaro sat all week it needed it's legs stretched.

as some others have said try PDR and if doesnt work out get a carbon fiber fender

its cool/ the right thing to do on your buddys part to offer to pay for it. If you can get it done on your own dime thats cool I doubt anyone with a camaro is living paycheck to paycheck. people on this thread need to calm down.

Just for your info, I had my car completely scratched, dented, torn from bumper to bumper by a guy in a parking lot. I wasn't even in my car. Obviously I did nothing. But since they weren't able to find the other driver, my insurance rate went up by 15%.

For anyone who’s been to AC lately, you’ll quickly realize what a dump it really is. Every possible low life creature roams those streets at all hours of the day. A while back while l was waiting in a parking lot, I had a hobo open my passenger door and jump right in. Caught me off guard and Scared the bejesus out of me. I haven’t been back since and probably never will.

I didn't read through the whole thread so someone may have said this already, but if I were you I'd look into paintless dent repair. I've seen some crazy stuff repaired. Should be pretty cheap maybe a couple hundred

Got a quote for $200 for PDR. He said "thats pretty bad dent man, you may need a new panel but I'm pretty good so I'll do it for $200" Lol, so I'm hoping its doable. Is there anything underneath I should be worried about damaging? I looked and it looks like a little bit of foam and like a reservoir looking thing...however it was just a kick I don't think it would have a enough force to damage anything underneath just enough to dent sheet metal.

First. Your friend is an immature jack hole. Second, teach him a lesson by making him pay for the damage. Hard to tell from the pics but I can see a dent right at the top of the fender. You can try paintless dent removal but personally i've never seen that type of repair done to my satisfaction.

Odds are this is going to require fixing the dent and a repaint which is going to be expensive. Let you buddy pay. Maybe he's learn a lesson that will save his life some day.

The PDR guy may have to drill some access holes in the door jamb to get tools in there and get the right leverage. If the paint is not cracked/chipped this should be fixable with PDR. Watch the whole video I linked to above to see what's involved. It takes a lot of skill to get that panel crease perfect again. The sheet metal should be quite flexible in that area and, as long as your PDR guy is talented, all should be fine. $200 great price. I think the dent video I linked to above was a 2 hr. job. This is not easy or fast work.

So it's back from the PDR guy, he did a decent job. He said it was worse than initially picture because the side panel hit a supporting structure and something else underneath and cause little ripples or dimples...also the kick caused dents far away from the epicenter that affected a large area of the panel. However it did come out pretty good, you can still see that something happened there but first glance over it's not really noticeable. I called my buddy he said "Bro just replace it and I'll pay for it" I told him it's not a huge deal it looks a lot better and I'm pretty satisfied. The guy told me he could have his buddy take it off pound it out, grind it, sand it etc... then paint it and it will look brand new but it would tack on a few hundred obviously and he would need my car for two days. Idk I might do it but I think I'm just over it and content with the repair right now. I would upload pictures but it's raining now. Will do so at a later date.

I would like to see the pictures. There is really a lot involved with this technique. I'm guessing to fix your dent perfect is probably a 3 hr. job. But the guy can't quote you a 3 hr. price or he won't get the job. I'm basing that on a lot of youtube videos I have watched where they tell you how long they really spend on the dents. The tools aren't cheap either!

Interesting.
I have been an owner for only 6 months, but it was my lifetime DREAM to have something special to drive around, especially with a sudden health issue that I never planned on.
I quickly realized there are a few places you do not take your pride-and-joy.
1. Don't park it anywhere near Wallmart.
2. Stay outta inner-city areas! (including hospital parking lots, casinos, etc.)
*******
(think that covers about 90% of places not to go.)
Just my 2 milligrams.

Your friend is an idiot. If all parties were okay, what's the point of being a dingbat and escalating the situation? People are F'n crazy these days.

The friend should feel responsible to pay for damages.
