Sorry to see that. Aw, man that just s--ks. : - (

With insurance companies being how they are these days, I'm quite sure they will want to total it for damage like that.

And yet, I wonder how practical it may be to try to repair it. I mean there should be plenty of good used hoods, windshields, dashboards if needed, and even roofs (cut from donor and welded on) at wrecking yards. (All those parts are available on an '04 in a rather small yard near me.)

Maybe those who are well versed in heavy body repair could comment here.

I just hate to see what may be a repairable Element get scrapped.

The labor time just replacing the roof panel alone makes it impractical for a vehicle of that age.
