Your photos aren’t attached. Try again.

The only opinion that matters is the one from the repair facility and your insurance. No matter what we can see from pictures will not show hidden damage that might be discovered during repair. The adjustors do this sort of thing all the time so just let them do their job. You do have the right to discuss the findings before you sign off on the estimate or settlement.
