Minna called me at work on Thursday and started by saying "I did a bad thing..." She continued by saying that she was backing up the car, and then I thought that there was probably something that we'll have to fix. I just imagined the back bumper dented and falling off and the lights broken out.
The story goes that while she was backing she had opened up the door to see how close to the curb she was and backed up just a little more, and the door hit a tree, a big solid tree. The door lodged against the tree rather than bent backwards. Because of the pressure on the door going directly against the frame of the car, the door became skewed a bit and the inside of the jam on the door was dented from the tree.
She tried to shut the door and it just hits the door jam, there is no latching, no forcing it to close, just a single "klonk", and the door pulls open again. The place on the door that will latch with the car is dented in and does not match up with the car.
Here in the bad photo, you can see how there is damage. Also look and see how the metal has become curved just below the latch. What you can't see is that under the vinyl good-looks of the interior, the metal is also caved in.
There will be more to come on this. We found a dude who does auto body repair out of his garage and he will fix it pretty quick and pretty cheap and comes well recommended. I'll recommend him when I get it back and see that the work is good.
