Backing into a dark place while wearing sunglasses is never a bright idea.

I don't see anything that a competent body shop cannot just fix.
Have it estimated by a professional.

My profound sympathies Guilherme, that must be heartbreaking.

Are you insured for this kind of thing?

I think you will struggle to find that top panel as a replacement, but to my inexpert eye I think a skilled panel-beater might be able to beat that dent out?

A case where an AR-15 would be justified!!

Only if you like the inside of a French prison.
There is no indication that this was the result of an attack or a deliberate or malicious act.

The 2cv needs to be cleaned up and driven . You know they cost an arm and a leg over here ? Hard to find , hard to buy .

I had somewhat similar damage to my spitfire. Top section on the rear looks like it can be pulled out and hammered out. Bottom valance would be easier/cheaper to replace. I would think you can get the whole section at rimmers. The bonnet is what concerns me more.

Either, beat out the upper valence, english wheel a new one, or find a donor for surgery. The GT6 I bought had been hit in the right rear, I have pretty much the same damage to sort out.

I've got parts, but I'm a long way from France! (and don't know anything about international shipping)

That's a real bummer, Guilhem! Smashed in the back, and crunched in the front, too. I wish you luck. It will be difficult to fix, but nothing is impossible with enough time and money. I hope the old guy was insured.

I'm sorry Guilhem: Couldn't help it... I'm so sorry for your loss.... but - a good body shop can make it "look like new".... though you will never be happy with it.... (bondo)....

Can't help but think - if Wolfcreek Steve has one.... someone over the pond will too...... good Luck

No need for Bondo, just takes some skill and patience.
