Thanks guys - its all so bizarre really....
Its her fault , I try and do the nice thing, but the 'dad' doesn't seem to want to admit has daughter ballsed up by driving into a parked car on the opposite side of the road she was supposed to be on.
He thinks both quotes I 've got ( one at mates rates at 1200) are 'maxed so I can take advantage of the situation'.
Oh well - calls made - a new TT being arranged (and paid for by her insurers who instantly admitted liability) while the original is fixed.
I'm even allowing her insurers to arrange this stuff - but i'm using my own repairer !
I tried but I had to chuckle about the ruining her life line ....
I think I'll make them (literally) pay for everything now !
