Recent Storm Damage

Hi Guys,
My very first foray into the wider world was great, except for one thing....I hit most of the big storms on my way to and from Memphis, and while parked behind a building for "protection". First thing that happened was a 75mph gust that grabbed my driver door, and dumped me face first in the parking lot at a rest area. Sprung the door pretty badly. Now that's somewhat fixed, the fender is now warped, with a small piece of the plastic lower area broken off. Any ideas on fixes and costs for this? Later, I got hit with a piece of flying debris (don't know what) on my right rear door, making a "crease" in the metal and finish. Again, suggestions? There it was, looking brand new...and now this! I am so disgusted, but at least I've recovered from the road rash on my face. I guess you could now say its officially "broken in".

Re: Recent Storm Damage

Sorry to hear that you and your van got hurt. Those first bumps and bruises are the worst. I would think your insurance company will handle it unless they won't cover storm damage for some reason. Good luck.
