Any ideas on how much repaired hail damage affects the value of a used car? Guessing it shouldn't be as bad as say body/frame damage, although if the hail damage was bad enough and you get in to re-skinning roofs etc.?

No clue - to general a question. We had $3k worth of hail damage and it was all PDR'd so there was no real damage to the original paint work therefore, in my opinion, no devaluation in the car. New hoods/skins is no different than any other damage that would require reworking body panels - it's not worth as much.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. Other than the Carproof notation of the claim, if the PDR is done right you shouldn't ever know it was damaged.
