    and they cut me a check for $765.28 on the spot. From there I went and made an apointment to get the Cobra fixed. I drop it off on May 7th.

    For those of you who don't remember or saw the pic, this is the problem I have now.

    If you look in the middle of the spot where the paint peeled you can see a small white ring, that is the impact crator.

    It's not just that, there are a total of 5 impact craters in the door and rear quarter panel. That is to repair and repaint the door and rear quater panel.

    Mine started peeling because it was hit by several rocks thrown by a lawnmower. If the paint is peeling because it is old or bad prep I doubt they will cover it. But if it was caused by somthing then they might. It depends on the insurance co.

    My comprehensive deductable is $100.00, my collision deductable is $500.00. It all depends on what you pay for. The higher the deductable, the cheaper your insurance is.

    There is only one impact crater that you can see in the pic. One is right above the side scoop in the seem on the 1/4 panel. the other 3 are up by the door handle.
