Re: Dreaded bonnet catch caused roof damage

Try and get some pictures up.

If it is just shallow dents in the roof skin then I can't see why anyone would write it off.

If you need to sit bent over double to drive then maybe it's a bit too much.

Unless an insurance claim has been submitted and the insurance class it a uneconomical repair and write it off, technically it's not a write off. At your stage, it's just damaged, that's all.
Roof dents can be pulled, filled, painted as appropriate or drive with a dented roof if you prefer.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
