Well, the die is cast. He rang up the insurance company this morning who gave him a number to ring for their preferred repairer. Turns out to be a company away up over the north side of the Forth in Fife. They wanted him to drive the car over there so it could be examined. But that's not reasonable as it means he'll loose best part of a day's working time. In the end they agreed to look at photos if he sent them through. Apparently if the cost of repair exceeds 60% of the current market value of the car they'll write it off. My guess is that that's going to be the outcome. Anyway "watch this space" I'll keep you informed of any interesting developments.I've had my boy look closely at the car and it looks like, although the doors have considerable damage, the rest of it's OK. considering the age of the vehicle and the generally rather scruffy state of the rest of the body, I think a couple of doors from a scrappie would sort it out cheaply enough. Anyway, they've already notified the insurance so that's a bit of a fait accompli as far as saving face with the insurance people. Just have to wait and see what bounces back now I suppose.
