    She isn't dedicated enough to you to get out an lay across the hood and sacrifice herself? ;)

    Just a thought, Hail is my biggest fear. It can do some damage but not enough to allow me to do some new truck shopping.

    Ya think the insurance adjuster has such a good eye that he/she could tell the difference between hail damage and "enhanced" ball pien hammer damage? Just thinking...It could just be the difference in "if you only had a few more hits we could of totalled it".

    I finally had a chance to look at my damage and its not that bad...about 40-50 dents on the hood and about that many more on the top of the cab but they are not that deep...I think some of them have already popped out in the sun
