    This is why I gave the range when you first asked for guesses. I've seen firsthand what "hidden" damage can do to what initially appears to be a simple repair. Just be glad they found it while it was still in for the repairs. Getting hidden damage repairs paid for later is a nightmare.

    DeNooyer. I think they found out when it was time to put the new hood on that the hood hinges were slightly bent. It's all good. Obviously, fitment wasn't quite right. Better to find out while it's still in paint, than after the fact.

    They also found a problem with the cooling fan & motor, which is a big ticket item. Haven't had a chance to stop in and see what that was all about.

    You definitely called it. Much closer than I would have guessed. The other deer collision I mentioned in the first page was also over 6 grand. Seems to be the norm for 55 to 60 mph deer collisions.
