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.
