crunch

We were driving into a parking lot tonite when the passenger side nerf bar hooked an unmarked guide wire on a utility pole. I saw the pole,but in the poorly lit lot the wire wasn't visible.
Bent the front nerf bar mount,gouged the passengers door and bent the fender at the bottom just behind the tire.
I feel like throwing up.I'll be taking it to the body shop tomorrow to see how much money this will set me back.

That's tough........always a sick feeling when something like that happens. Don't worry, a good body guy can get her back to new again.

Found out today it will be $300 to get the truck fixed.Not nearly as bad as I thought it would be,but I'll have to wait about a month since we are still recovering from Christmas.
