'03 Mercedes Benz wrecked & rebuilt

Hey guys, just figured I'd throw out the work I've been on for a little while.

Here's a little back story. The kid who owns this car can't drive for sh*t. I replaced his side mirror about 2 weeks ago, as he was backing out of the body shop lot he backed into one of our part trucks leaving an tore up his rear bumper an trashed the bed on the truck.

Well the same day he lets his brother take the car out for I guess a date night. His brother apparently can't drive also because he rear ended somebody else. So back into the shop it comes on a wrecker.

I had to replace the hood, grill, wiper cowl, fix the front & rear bumper with staples & bumper repair epoxy, fix the huge dent in the passenger fender, replace both headlights & repaint all repairs to match.

So here are some of the pictures I was able to take as this went along

The rental car he got while I his was getting fixed, he curbed the wheels so bad that he had to buy 2 new wheels & tires before he could take it back to the rental place!

Well it looks new again.

Haha yeah coupons might just work, but then again we've worked on all their cars.

His oldest brother wrecked his charger ($9k repair)
Sister just wrecked her caliber 5 weeks ago ($4k repair)

The whole family can't drive. I'd hate to see the family reunion :

I feel like there should be a law, you get in so many accidents, even if its with another not moving object, you get your license suspended. Im not gonna lie, Ive had one accident, wasn't paying attention and backed into my garage door.
