Auto body repair & detailing/elcamino body repair


I have a 1986 elcamino that was in mint condition.  A neighbor's child backed into the side by the gas tank and there is now a dent throught the lid and on each side. What is the price range you think I'm looking at to fix this.  Is it even worth it?

Hi Renee'....Judging by your description of the damage, and being that this is a classic vehicle in mint condition, I would definitly say it is worth fixing....Unfortunatly, without seeing the damage in person, I can not give you an accurate estimate....Just as a ballpark figure, between $500 and $1000 Dollars....Depending on the severity of the dents....If you could send me a picture of the damage, I could give you a better idea as to the cost....Your best bet, would be to drop by a Body Shop locally, and have them give you a written estimate....Thanks for your question....Dave
