If carfax searches police reports by vin, then yes. She did quite a bit of damage to the mustang she hit. Most states have a set threshold for reporting damage. A percentage of total worth or dollar amount, but it's up to the seller to disclose it.

Any competent body man can spot amateur repairs. It's also pretty easy to spot professional repairs if you know what to look for.

The airbag module also has a record of events if they are deployed, but that can be cleared with the right tool. Most rebuilders simply replace them.

Find a paintless dent removal guy. I've seen them do some amazing things. PDR won't work if the metal is creased enough to break the paint. If that's the case find a complete door the same color if possible and replace it. Doors are a lot easier to find than front and rear parts, and you may get lucky locally. If not try Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market and sort by distance. It's pretty easy to hang a new door, but electronics may complicate it.

Paint codes are listed on the information sticker on the drivers door, just inside the lower door jamb. (on that year Jeep, other makes vary) From there you can blend paint into the next panel - paint it with diluted paint to transition the color into the next panel.

The electronics probably disconnect inside the door. It's not difficult, but time consuming and tedious. Let the car warm up so the plastic is warm and not brittle. Take your time and be patient. One of those cheap LED magnetic lights will help immensely if you don't already have one.

You may also need some torx bits, and small picks.

Well done. Those hydraulic porta-power kits are tops. I once purchased a damaged VW 1976 golf (I've had many golfs) for $550 private deal drive-able with rear damage, and 11 months rego. Fixed it up with hydraulic porta-power kit, bit of bog and paint, swapped better parts off it onto another Golf, then sold repaired one for $1100 with 6 months rego.

Doubled my money, and got some better parts off it for the main Golf... but it took time and effort.

I have torx on standalones, ratchet torx bits, including some right angles although finicky to use and a bit bulky (have had difficulty but success in using them for my jeep before). Would I potentially need any of those curvy ones shown in your opinion?

Sounds like you're set for torx. The curvy picks are for getting electrical plugs apart and lining up bolt holes. Depending on the seller, they may remove the glass, window regulator and door handle unless you ask for them. Not a big deal, but more work.

Looks like I may get the opportunity to work on my own stuff for a change. Just got rear ended in the wife's Toyota Rav4. Not even a year old The good news is I may make some money on this if my buddys shop does the paint work and I do the rest.

Doesn't look bad, but the bumper skin is cracked, rear gate is bent, and won't open. I'm pretty sure the frame where it latches is bent.

Annnnd the ***** didn't have insurance so I'll be eating the $1000 deductable, and my back is ****ed up. $5,835.04 in damage.

Whiplash ain't no joke. I was fine over the weekend, but couldn't hardly wipe my own ass on Monday.
