Oh ****! What happened?

Looks like it would be easier to swap all salvageable parts to a new shell. **** thats bent! Ouch.

Overcooked it into 8, spun back wards into the wall, I am fine... waiting on the word from the bodyshop. The car will be inspected next week, I am keeping my fingers crossed, really wanna save it, I love that thing :(

Oh man, sorry to hear this! Glad you are OK tho...
I think its a lot of damage, and its not worth fixing, unless you want to put a few G's in it...Just find a clean shell and transfer over...

Not so good. Glad you're OK.

Glad that you are OK, however that shell is cooked. The RIGHT side C pillar has deformation at the base.

If it can be fixed, I'll fix it... I love that car. Fil, looks like I will need a new rear bumper from you, after I hear from the body shop, I'll call you.

The body guy said that it can be fixed, they work on a lot of race wrecks, much worse than mine... I am keeping my fingers crossed, I would really like to save it. As soon as they give me the verdict, I will let you guys know. Just in case, I already looked at a few ads, but will wait till next week to make a decision.

Understood. It's going to cost a lot of money to fix it right though.

I know, I know... :( *mumble*

damn that sucks, when did this happen?? was it a lapping event?

BigD 11-03-2007 01:18 PM

Glad to hear you're ok man... and yeah it may well prove cheaper to fix it since you won't get any $ for this shell, nor will you really recover anything from selling stuff off a car you buy so you pretty much eat the cost of a replacement car (which won't be cheap since you're looking for a clean body) - then you have to spend $ on installing the cage etc etc

Plus as Bruno always said after repairing his E34 after the crash - it's a very special feeling to give a good car a 2nd chance.

Sorry to hear about the mishap. That's some hit! Hope it tracks straight after some TLC.

Lee 11-03-2007 03:12 PM

Damn. That sucks. As the others have highlighted, it's time for a reshell.
