OMG - So sorry to see this. Assume you have full coverage insurance and will get it back shiny and new soon.

It's painful to look at those pictures.

Hope it all turns out better for you in the long run.

Maybe the warranty Jim gave you is still valid? ;-)

Remember a similar situation on April 15ht 2007 in Galway when there was a heavy wet snow and my wingtips wound up touching the ground and my wing struts look the let "Z" in the alphabet. Just a very sick feeling.
