Yeah, I’m posting it a bit early. Lunchtime meeting is going to get in the way, so here we go!

The estimated cost of repair is $10,007.31.

Congratulations cletus44 aka Clayton Seams!

Congratulations to Galileo Humpkins (aka Fellatio Del Toro)!

[UPDATE: Yeah, I goofed. Galileo had the winning vote with $10,000.28. Somehow, I missed it.]

But the story isn’t over! The repair estimate doesn’t include any repairs to the rear suspension or drivetrain components. The body shop will file for a supplement once they put it on a lift and start taking it apart to assess the full damage.

This number is going to go higher. Probably a LOT higher.

For those who are curious, the breakdown of the votes is below. If two votes were cast with the same number and they didn’t update this morning, I used the one which posted first. The ones which are crossed out were disqualified. My condolences go out to Brian Silvestro. His vote came in after Clayton’s and he didn’t revise his vote this morning. Better luck next time.

Next time? Sure! We’ll play again when I receive the updated estimate.

Thanks for playing!
