LMAO!!! Is that in the roof? Where is it?

Depending on the location, you might just be able to get a new piece of metal for it. Either that or pound it flat from the inside, bondo, paint.

Re: I have a bullet hole in my car. Fixable? lol

That really sucks... Your best bet would be to either cut out the hole and replace with metal or try to pound it out, bondo and repaint. Might try taking it to an autobody shop just for an estimate.

Edit: How much is your deductable on insurance if you have it? You could call the cops, say someone shot your car, then report it to the insurance and have them take care of it if your deductable is low enough, or atleast lower than an autobody estimate.

Re: I have a bullet hole in my car. Fixable? lol

It says not to ask...But I just have to know...I didn't even know that guns were sold in Indiana :/

lol, any good body shop will be able to take care of that for you. If you were from here, I know a shop about 30 minutes North of me that would have done it better than anywhere...Fast and cheap.

Re: I have a bullet hole in my car. Fixable? lol

easy fix, i fix these all the time being outside D.C., did you find the bullet, i keep the ones i find in cars, the rear trunk carpet in a Honda Accord can stop a .45, it shouldn't cost you more than 300$ in a body shop. watch your head!! Some guys cars i fix they get the color changed and new rims, may be a good idea!!

I'd imagine the guy that would mess with him... would be the guy that tried to shoot him in the head in the first place.


Look at where that hit.
That was an attempted head shot...
You might want to spring for bullet proof glass while you're there.

* to benztalon, the reason a .45 stops is because of its mass. a 9mm is 50-50 but won't hold a straight path it goes like this ----> [<
And a 40 goes straight thru and fuckin kills you.
The velocity and mass is perfectly balanced for killing someone in a car.*

Ok I didn't just say that.
