Thanks Arkin, Quote was 65,000 and work is in process. I have more or less decided on selling it off. There is a bit of emotional value attached to it coz I had brought it to coincide with my daughter's birthday (hence the garish color for a staid guy like me).
I guess I will have to endure the waiting period for the Swift or take an irrational detour and go for a Manza.

Resale value, will take a heavy beating.
Thanks Dhanushs. Your view is the widely held one. Car vs Electricity Post, the Post wins.

For a good MASS or a body shop with all the right tools and equipment the apron replacement is a routine job and they seem to get their jobs spot on these days!

That's definitely great news. . Resale for accidental cars should go high.

Has any of the fellow forum members replaced the same, with no problems?. (of course, on the long term), with no cracks, rust, or alignment issues?.

Thats the whole point.
Would you want to be such an unsuspecting owner ? Why not play fair game ?
