Hi Richard

New member here. I'm the 3rd owner of my '93 Excella and was able to speak to the second owner, who told me the original owner (sorry, bear with me a min here - lol) attended the Bismarck rally in '93. The hail damage to the trailer was over $10K, with the street side panels replaced only - the top panels were left untouched. When I'm on a ladder I can see evidence of hail damage on my roof, but it is not severe at all and can't be seen from the ground. Hopefully your damage will work itself out over time.

Thank you. State Farm did provide a very detailed estimate (panel by panel and part by part).

Thank you for your response.

Therefore, some of the dents will dissapear in the segments, but it's unlikely they all will.

A loss of value settlement should be "very specific." Each and every damaged panel should be listed, and the allowance for each one.

In that way, should you have collision damage to one of the same panels, State Farm will deduct the amout of the loss of value.

Should it not be itemized that way, then it's anyones guess as to how much they would deduct for that particular panel, in the event of a collision loss.

Exact itemization, is the "key." Don't accept less.

If the adjuster knows what he's doing, you won't have a problem.

Depends on the year and model of MG. Several of mine had aluminum hoods. Mostly the 65-67 model B's.

Paintless dent repair guys use hot glue and small dent puller hardware to remove dings, dents, small hail damage when they can't get in behind the area. Works well on out trailers. Remove the hot glue with alcohol.
