f**k, spewing mate!
Let me guess... Milleara road? That is a C*** of a road if it was.
Good that it was a 4wd and hit high... much rather bootlid damage then floor pan damage!
I think Dave (EL XR8 on here) has a mint bootlid, not cardinal though, think its light blue. He probably wouldn't be after much for it either.
He's in Sunbury.
You ever at the Gisborne carwash?
Think I may have seen you there a few weeks back.
I've got the cobalt blue ED, 4wd height on sprint rims, a dark tint and a crooked exhaust tip that is waaaay to big :P

holy s**t if he was still on the phone when he got out i think i would of rammed it up his a**.
is it only the bootlid thats damaged? if so your lucky, looks like a fair decent whack.
since he will be paying would be worth getting a panel shop to check it out make sure nothing underneath has been bent or that

its all been checked out by our family friend his a mechanic - and not even the bootlid latch thing was bent - so it ws only the boot itself - it has been fixed so the boot can be opened - due to it not being able to - but i will be giving himthe quote for a new boot and then for the price to get it painted!! and if he doesnt like it he can find it all!!

F**k, how high was this bullbar? or how low is your car? :D missed the rear bumper and tail lights amazingly.

Hope he doesn't stuff ya round saying he will pay for it.. buttttttttttttttttttt when he has the money :evil:

lol you've just been rear ended and everyone thinks your lucky he only damaged your boot. :P

I'm assuming its his choice of panel beater? :/

Cause any lower and it's almost a guaranteed write off.

na the rear bar is my doing - some from when putting trailers on the car - and the white part is where paint has flaked off - but im in the stages of fixing that - car aint that low - just on lows - but he was in a new patrol with bullbar so they are high but yes any lower and she would have been sitting on a tow truck for sure

What he said..

If he's paying, make sure they blend the paint very well, newly painted panels on older cars are really obvious.
