I talked to the adjuster who even said "well if you had mentioned younwantwd the a-pillar and hood alone fixed it might have been a different story" to my response of "well that's what I was most concerned with since I'm in the industry and know how to do the rest of the work myself but the paint work" but it sounds like they have their minds made up -_-.That stinks!
Can you talk to them about totaling it, and then you buying it back?
I don't think the salvage title is that big of a deal. If you go to resell it, you have all the documentation showing the ridiculous reason why.
Honestly around here anymore, that salvage title is damning. Thanks to tgebwondeful world of the internet, it seems like even if you have to proof, it comes down to the paper...
I'm not sure how much energy I have to go back and forth. The car is worth much more then I thought private party if it has a clean title. It's just my time and a little extra money that I could recoup if we sold it.
