I will be but i expect to sue if i want anything done about it..wont persue it yet til i get the estimates.. which will be high because it needs:
-front fender painted and blended
-brake caliper and brake lines
-spindle, caliper was broken off of it and theres no-where to bolt the caliper to now
-wheel hub
-tire
-wheel
-control arm, grinded alot of it off
