The insurance man came to look at the car this past week, and he pointed out a few things I had missed. He said the B pillar was tweaked and so was the door hinge, so the door scrapes because of that. He found some other minor damage and said he would be very close to totalling it. Doesn't appear to be any suspension damage but the wreck did knock off the wheel weights on one tire. Explains the vibration. Somehow the force of impact broke one of the headlights and cracked the mounting off. Maybe it was already cracked and the impact just finished it off.

Anyhow, Plan B is to swap whatever I can to my brother's Intrepid if he'll agree to sell it to me. Same year, base model, should be a lot of stuff on mine that his needs. I would like to swap the Concorde rear bumper and trunk lid to the Intrepid if it'll swap. but not sure if that'll work.

Anyway, that all assumes they'll total it. If not, I will just use the money to make it more reliable and leave it looking like a beater. Because really, that's what the car was being used for before the wreck.

I promise: pictures this week.

The bumper cover may swap over, but the deck lid is a no go there.

I'm guessing that if you cut the b-pillar at about where the black masking is (half way down the b-pillar) and swap in a junk yard section (including the rocker panel, etc) you'll take care of that b-pillar tweaking.

The headlight bracket was already broken I'm sure - they break if you sneeze too hard in them.

Even if they total it, you can buy it back from them for pennies - they don't want to tow the vehicle away and auction it - they'd rather sell it back to you (state law may dictate something different though).
