Actually, I was very open about what happened to this forum, and asked for advice. On person actually recommended that I pull out the hits so it would get more $$$s in the sale. I chose to not do cosmetic bodywork, figuring that THAT was more reprehensible than simply showing the car in it's true condition.

Carfax has the accident report, so it's a non-issue re: buyer. Finally, feedback happens after the purchase, and it realtes to the sale, not the condition. For instance, I bought a car on ebay a few yeasrs ago that promptly needed thousands of dollars worth of work on the engine. My feedback was excellent for the seller - after all, it's not his fault that the engine needed work. I'm sure that my excellent feedback over the last 6 years will not be impunged by a buyer not noting the dents and dings, however small and large, etc.

It's a nonissue since I've noted the rearend.
