How much damage are we looking at?

Neigbor got his Mazda whacked this morning. He is thinking of selling it and not fixing it. If the price is right I was thinking of picking it up from him. I am guessing 5K worth of damage. What is the rfd keyboard warriors say?

If it's just all cosmetic, 2k should do it. I don't see major dents / scratches with the doors. Front door looks like it can be PDR-ed. Just the front quarter needs to be replaced/painted and the plastic moldings need to be replaced. You can ding him another 500 for a repaint on the bumper since there's some small scratches on passenger side?

You could probably tell him 5k, and profit the rest.

Yes, passenger side front wheel lip looks severely damaged.

Driver side door looks seriously dented judging by reflections of neighbouring rooflines.

I think the car owner knows it is big dollars and hence why is he is leaning towards unloading it.

Just the sort of deal that the average RFD'er would be salivating over, but I wouldn't touch it.

.... to add. Huge potential for the infamous rust concern now that the process has just sped up significantly.
