Glad you are ok. Could of been a lot worse. Take your time finding a good shop for the repair. The doors a no brainer but repairing the quarter is going to take some qualified welding and body work.

They will fix it. Under OK law (circa 1992) YOU decide where it is going to be repaired and must consent to the use of non-OEM parts. You do not have to get estimates unless you want to do so. The non-OEM parts thing can become confusing when OEM sell excess parts to a supplier. Those parts now become non-OEM parts even though they were made by the OEM. Ask me how I know these things.

Jeremy, are they cutting the quarter panel or going back to the factory lines.
When they were doing my son's 2016 GT they were going to just cut the new Ford 1/4 at the upper body line, and not go into the roof.
They were going to make it like a 1/4 skin
That was two years ago and his car had 7,000 miles on it  It was a fight so watch out for that trick

Hope no one was hurt or banged. Car can be fixed, though it is a bummer for it to happen. Was the truck driver cited?

Insurance sent me to Collision Works (online reviews weren’t bad) and I took it up to the shop in Yukon. The quotes are pretty close. The Yukon guy went over the quote with me and pointed out that the aftermarket parts are close in price to the OEM. Said he would be using OEM if I brought it to him.

Good question and I don’t remember if we discussed it. I will discuss with the shop before they begin work.

Another good question. Nobody but us stoped and so it was a no witness accident. The trooper first said that the other driver claimed that it was I who left my lane but I pointed out that the angle of the Damage doesn’t support that claim. He seemed to agree.

After it was all over, he asked me to walk him through it again. I again stated that it was the other driver who was swerving and he said “then that’s the way the report will read.” Not sure if it will simply say “mustang driver stated...” or if it will be written as a fact.

I actually had that discussion. The cost of “reconditioned “ parts was about the same cost of new parts. They went ahead and listed them as new Ford parts.
