^^^^^^Fiber glass is Easy^^^^^^ - it should not be hard to find someone to do the work- but having to do it is a PITA.

Best of luck

Second time around. While driving to a collision repair shop regarding the front-end damage from Whitehorse, a careless driver in Spokane took out my driver's side mirror on the freeway. Driver was cited. Total repair estimate for both incidents is north of $11,000.00. Fast forward one week, currently in South Carolina working disaster operations. Can anyone recommend a repair shop in the area?

Was the driver in the Whitehorse accident , registered in BC ?

If he was; did you contact ICBC ,( Insurance Corp of British Columbia ) before you left the province ?

If for some reason you make it out to California

Nor Cal RV Body INC. in west Sacramento. They do great work. I just did a full repaint redesign of my 1999 Alpine 40FDS. They do great work. Collision work is what they do best.

This is the fourth time this summer an on-coming driver turn left in front of me while I was making a right turn. Only this time I was so far into the turn I couldn't see him coming. Speed and impatience, some drivers will never learn.

I work on a TV show. We have many fire trucks we use as picture vehicles. Big, red fire trucks. A few weeks ago a civilian drove into one of our parked fire trucks while sending a text message.


You are correct, some people will never learn.

So the coach is finally in the shop for repairs. Located a facility in Charlotte, North Carolina (currently working in South Carolina). Found a front cap and frame which will make it a simple remove and replace (after it is painted). Will post pictures once work is finish in a couple of weeks.
