Re: [T3] insurance claim advice :(

I've heard of it. There's even a guy in town here who does it.

I've also heard that in the right cirxje the results are very nice.
I'm sure, like you said, no missing paint things like that are important.

I've never seen the process in person or the result, just heard about it.
