Sorry to hear of the accidnent ..car was looking excellent.
My advice would be ... Drop the car off at the shop of your choice and meet the Adjuster there ...obviously drop it off prior so Your body shop has a chance to do an estimate. Thats what i did when my car came from Calif and was damaged.
They should send the insurance check to you ...prior to paying the body shop obviously inspect the car that its to your liking ... don't worry about pissing them off ... because what i went thru i was pissed off most of the time thru the entire ordeal. My body shop didnt replace some of the suspension parts ..so i deducted money from the estimate.
