what to do with all this money?!?!?!
Sunday, March 16, 2014 8:42 PM
Sooo my cavy got hit in the parking lot by a big f250 while it was parked.
very little damage I was able to fix it myself. Still the insurance company gave me 2300

What should I do to my car with this money??
My interior is stock so im thinking something there and maybe paint. I dunno what would you do?

If the car is in need of fresh paint I would consider this.The remaining I think I would just save for any repairs later down the line.Paint is not cheap if done correctly and may eat up a big part of the funds as it is.

Besides the obvious of routine maintenance or working out the kinks that some cars have.
Perhaps.... TVS?

Well, I'd say money toward a new car...

I'd still maybe about half that away, and depending on what you have done-just upgrade it a bit. Make it fun to handle. Or if you have some stuff already, grab some buddies, find some used parts, and make it a bit faster.....

X2 very good advice, I actually had something similar done just before winter... I parked my car on the street and a minivan backed into it. I wasn't home at the time but the lady left a note. To avoid dealing with insurance, We just did a cash settlement. The ding on the door is hardly noticeable, but body shops still wanted $1700+ to fix it, mainly for blending the paint. I may look at getting a door from the junk yard or try fixing it myself but not too worried right now. The extra money went into savings to go towards a down payment on a house this spring.

Nothing at all wrong with that, so long as the life budget is properly funded.

I decided to buy a mega squirt some racing buckets and a paint job.
wish me luck on the mega squirt. Look for "supercharged cavy with huge electrical problems" in the classifieds section. :p ;0
