Damage beind bumper


Oct 2, 2019
Long story short. Someone nacked their trailer into my parked car while on vacation. Had the video of the incident and figured it would be a super quick case with insurance. Haha, i was wrong. 3 months later it has been approved for repair. During this period i had figured it was really just the bumper cover and maybe the retaining clip holding it on that got damaged. Their insurance wouldnt pay the 1000 for tesla to replace since it didnt need to in their opinion. So i decided to pull back the wheel well cover and just see if there was any more damage. Turns out there is. I attached the pictures of both sides. As you can see the metal got pushed in and also appears to be rusting or maybe its just adhesive. Anyone have experience on what repairs for something like this looks like
