Yup, already got the insurance check for $800+, so need to call body shop and get parts on order, then arrange a time slot.

Wow, turning in a small problem like that to the insurance company? I sure wouldn't have. They might give me higher prices next year. My sister had her insurance yanked because she loaned her car to 2 people who had accidents in it. Nice friends, huh? (Both college grads with no insurance, BTW.)

Welllllllll, let's put it this way - What I've spent so far, plus the $200, I can handle. That other $800+ isn't gonna happen.

I think I missed something here. You said you got the check for $800+ but then said the $800+ isn't gonna happen. What'd I miss? Did you order the brake parts from the body shop, or was there body/wheel damage as well?

$200,
Read my lips, Lazza . . got the insurance check for $800+, and I have to pay the $200 deductible. If I had to come up with the $800 on my own, it wouldn't happen(at least not very soon).

What I'm still confused about is why you even MIGHT have to come up with $800 on your own since the total OOP was only $300, including graft/tips. And your $1k+ insurance check was pre-deducted so the $200 never came out of pocket, right? Why did you say you "plus the $200, I can handle" that when it was a deductible, not an expense? If the truck repair cost $1,000 I could understand, since it would be OOP. Oh, never mind. :-/

OK, once more to clarify. Original OOP was the $310 for towing, graft, tips, brake parts. There IS body damage to LF fender & headlight assy. where it was leaning against the tree(the one that was keeping the truck from turning turtle in the ditch). Ford body shop says replace the fender as it's too badly crushed to pull out & fix. Their estimate, not taking into account deductible, was about $925-930. The insurance adjuster came and looked it over, his estimate was about $1035-1040, less the $200 deductible, so they issued a check for about $835. To get the truck fixed I'll have to pay any difference between that check and the actual cost, or in effect, the $200 deductible. By time it's fixed, I'll be OOP about $500, but without that $800+ insurance check, it probably wouldn't get fixed, as I couldn't come up with that $800 OOP besides the other stuff.

Ah, it was a fender bender after all. That was the missing piece. You hadn't mentioned fenders until now. OK, all clear. Thanks. (I kept thinking you Easterners had re-reinvented the New Math.)

Yeah, the way YOU drive. <gd&r>
If you get a chance (and haven't yet caught it) watch the History Channel's hourlong show about Ice Road Truckers. I was amazed and entranced.

Saw that sometime last year. Absolutely amazing -- the really amazing thing is the art and science that goes into determining the proper speeds and timing to avoid breaking through.

Boy, do you know US! <eg>

Are you doing that in hopes of staying up on the important threads, like "staining pine", "pointy sticks", "Crapsman", and "which saw?" ? Did it work?

Cool. I met a guy from another group last week and that was fun, too. Metalworkers have completely different yet extremely familiar shops.

Heathern! (That's Aussie for "Heathen!" in case you didn't recognize it.) Don't you know that Landis' tome is THE choice of Wooddorkers everywhere? Oh, wait a minute, he'll let you read it for free? Go for it.

Bummer. Yeah, matching faces-to-names is always fun.

<sigh>

More in hopes of catching a design argument or a discourse on joinery selection (yeah, I know Larry, I know...)

We are remarkably similar, as our differences show.

Umm, I happen to have Scott's book somewhere too!
