My son had the top hinge popped in his 2003 F150 driver side
door by the wind. He opened the door in a sandstorm out at his
Marine base at 29 Palms and the wind grabbed the door and
threw it open before he could react. The hinge is about 1/8" away
from the door frame. Does anyone know how about much this will
cost him to get fixed ? My plan is to take it back to the Ford dealer
that we bought it from 3 years ago. BTW, the door is rubbing on
the door frame at the front so I am planning on getting this fixed
after he leaves for Iraq next week.
Without seeing it, I'm not sure anyone can give you an estimate of the cost.
It depends on what exactly was damaged. Also, shop rates for body work vary
widely depending on your location.
My prayers are with your son.
That is what I figured. As soon as I get rid of this flu I am going to take it
I am hoping that it is less than $500 to fix but I suspect I am short. The door
and the frame are rubbing so some of the paint is starting to flake off.
Thank you. His name is Michael. His mother and I are very proud of him
and very apprehensive for him. His battalion is well experienced as this is
their 4th trip to Iraq.
I'd be honored to add him to our church prayer list if you'd allow it. Send
a message to my email address if you like.
I'm sure you're very proud. Thank you for training your son to have
character and to stand for our great nation.

Please pray for all the soldiers and especially the 25,000 Marines in
Iraq. They seem to be harm's way more and more nowadays. The
Marines in particular are in the worst of the spots due to their go-get-em
attitude and awesome training regime. I even saw that the President sent
Marines to the Phillipines yesterday to help dig out those poor people
in the mudslide.
You are welcome. He did most of it himself. The corrollary to that
was him giving me his will when he left. If he is killed then he wants his
death insurance ($400,000) to go to his girfriend to help her finish
college and to establish college funds for his cousins. I pray fervently
that I do not have to do that.
