Help, I Bashed My Friend's Car by Miranwa: 5:14pm On Feb 14
Good Day Nairaland, I tried parking my friend's car yesterday night and i without concentrating, bashed it against a piller.

I have be worried since morning and want to fix it before he comes back, he traveled to the village.

Is it something serious, or just the bumper.
And how much will it cost to repair.

Please help a brother.

Panel beater to restore bonnet and bumper to their original look and position.

Replacement of grill

Painter to spray the bonnet and bumper.

Budget between ₦25,000 to ₦50,000.

If you are close to Gowon estate near egbeda Lagos ...I would 've connected you to a qualified panel beater that will fix it like factory follow come. ...so far the two head lights are intact , except you intend to change the bumper .and bonnet ...A good panel beater will fix both bonnet and bumper without replacement.

Infact budget 12k for painting if you intend to paint rough area...and panel will take like 15k ......in fact with 30k. ..you are good to go

must you drive your friend car in the first instance? it is because of something like this i always avoid driving someone else car but if is my own car,if i v=bash it then i fix it at my convenience . the money you suppose to use it to enjoy yourself now will be used to fix car.

less than 20k will fix the car but if na lagos or abuja , you fit spend more ooooo but still depend on location you dey

PS: lesson to other people, don't always rush to drive your friends car, wait till God provide your own for you, if you get your own car and something happened ,you get rest of mind

Don't panic, good panel beater will get it done. It's just a day's job. With 20k you are good to go unless you let the panel beater know that you want to secretly fix it without the owner's knowledge. That's when they will open shop on your head

Bro 5k won't fix that car, even several years i had same experience i paid more than 5k .. Op if you're in lagos visit ladipo .. there are expert that will fix the bumper & touch it paint where necessary then a panel beater will straighten the bonnet, the paint you buy will serve for where necessary. just budget 10k for a neat job

Call your friend and inform him..

Don't fix his car without his knowledge please.

If he gets to find out later, he would never trust you again.
