RE:  Our Claim Number:  FC-287080
        Date of Loss:            12-08-99

Dear Mr. Starling:

This will confirm our telephone conversation of December 22, 1999. We regret any inconvenience you have experienced on this claim.

After reviewing your letter, we were able to confirm that the buffing process would remove some of the top coat, and feel that this would not be acceptable for your 1997 Yamaha. We agree that the sheet metal should be stripped and re-painted.

You indicated that stripping had already been done at a cost of $90.00. Please forward that receipt, and the amount will be credited towards your deductible.

As you obtain estimates on other aspects of the job, please forward them to us for consideration prior to further repairs. You may fax them to me at 616 683-6199.

We trust this will lead to a fair resolution of your claim. Please call if you have any questions.
