Got rear ended - have questions

I got whacked about three weeks ago. The damage was mostly to my tire-rack, and back door. My plan is to use the money to replace the tire-rack and have the 90 painted (completely) and get a new top.

Anyone have their 90 painted? How much do you think it will cost me? Any possible problems?

Anyone using the Badger Soft-top? How much was it (with the "fix kit")? Do you like it? Is there any other good option?

Thanks a lot gang-

Mike

Well a Badger isn't cheap, the none gutter kit top goes for I think about $1800 at Rovers North.

Painting isn't simple, if you are changing the color to do it right you need to do allot of prep work so that the inside of all the pannels is also painted. I would imagine to do it all "right" you are looking at (guessing here) $4k maybe?

My full badger with gutter kit was i think 3k total. I don't remember. Allow for at least 12 weeks for the top as Chris and company are usualy really busy. I deffinantly reccomend the top.

Call Chris at Badger and have him send a copy of his catalog. I have the Badger II and think it is the best top available. It wasn't cheap, but it was money well spent.

When I got smacked in the back I took my tyre carrier to a machine shop and they straightened it out for $50. I did get lucky, I had not body damage.......
