Its mainly cosmetic, so new doors & trims. The sill can be straightened, but knowing what bodyshops can be like when someone else is paying...allow for a new one.
Plus painting on the whole side (Gris Boreal, which I think this car is, is particularly hard to match), plus labour to strip the internal trims & electrics/locks and swap them over - £1500 to £2000
Its going to be close to write-off stage IMO, but the bodyshop will try to avoid this if its possible - otherwise they don't get any work, and therefore not paid.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
