Pfew! A cheap fix
I asked DX to switch cars with me and take mine in to the body shop affiliated with his work, for an estimate. A few weeks back, the underside of my car got caught on some tall, rock edging, and came down from the underside of the car, also pulling the right front quarter panel out a bit. Luckily, I was able to reposition the quarter panel, but knew that I'd need a shop to look at the car.
DX returned the car last night, on the way home from work, and told me that he fixed it, which surprised me, as I was clear to him that I just wanted an estimate. Approximately $10 in bolts and zip ties, it's back together again. I paid him for the parts plus some for his trouble
and he agreed to stay and have some of the homemade pizza I had. Nice to have avoided a costly car bill.
