Angry Can't believe this kid

So I was parked waiting for my gf to drop off some documents downtown Honolulu, a brown '98 Chevy Astro van pulls up to my left. I was sitting in the car waiting and the passenger (12 yr old boy) opens his door and slams it right above my front left tire. I couldn't believe it, rolled my window down and was like, "hey, what the heck!" Anyone have any idea how much this should cost?!?

Sorry to hear about it. Not just kids, there are too many careless people in the world that they don't care about other people's property. I hope you got their insurance information. That's a bad spot. Paintless dent removal company probably won't be able to remove it since it's right on the edge of the fender line. Might need to get a body shop to re-shape it...

That's hurt! Did you make the van driver compensate for the damage?

So i took it to the body shop and they started sanding and figured out that the scratch-fill-in coat started peeling off so they will have to redo the whole front fender. Horrible!!!

I also couldn't believe there were no GT-R certified body shops on the island. There is only one on the Big Island, but no GT-R dealers there. Does that make sense?!? So just a warning to all, if you want to do body work, make sure it's a certified GT-R body shop...
