Hail Damage
 
So I got some hail damage and I'm wondering if I should bother with a claim. A couple weeks ago a storm hit while I was at work and pelted my truck. Fortunately, it was small hail. I got two dents on the hood and one on the roof. Also, my Backflip G2 got hit pretty good. Looks like someone decorated it with a small ball peen hammer. It already has a krinkle finish so unless you are paying attention it's not that big of a deal. But if you are at the right angle you can see it easily. I took it in for an estimate and they said 1200.00. Paintless dent repair plus replacing the G2, but they would have to remove the hood liner and the headliner. Not crazy about the latter. Truck is two years old / 24,000 miles. Part of me says with an aluminum hood it's bound to happen again / the other part says screw it, spend 500 on the deductible and get it fixed. The one dent is pretty much dead center in the hood / about the size of a 1/8 inch ball bearing / the other two I can't see while I'm driving.

several members unfortunately have made visits to a PDL guy for hail damage

i have had my headliner off to install a CB antenna & a exterior speaker mounted in the overhead console, you could never tell that it had been done

Any pics with it off? I wouldn't mind potting a cb antenna on the roof.

Sorry, no pix of the interior headliner while it was pulled back

i still had my older truck & i had a lot of jobs back then
so i just left it off at the Alarm systems shop for a week, he did several other things for me at the same time
