ED xr parts r getting rare thats y it costs that much to do it if u go ahead fixin it make sure they put it on the caroliner to straighten the body u dont want it crab walkin or chewin tyres



The bar is bolted on straight at the moement & the bonnet is roped down.
She drives in a straight line & does not wander.
Yes thats all good but a caroliner will tell you if the front wheels r in line with the back wheels the car might drive straight but dosent mean it is the rails and body r straight ive seen this plenty of times

Well as I have been payed out for a financial write off & have been quoted $5000 to have it repaired.
The Guards are fine but the radiator support is f**k & the front bar aswell as the mounts.


if you were to strip the front end take the motor and gearbox out then take it to a panel beaters will cost you allot less s**t loads less, then all you have to it but it back togeather and walla car back on the road.

personally i would just wreck it. keep the $5000 and spend it on something else. sell your v8 engine and wreck the rest of the car. ppl pay good money for v8 conversions.


Really? I been trying to sell mine for over 12 months :)

Well I have pulled the Whole front end off, so far the Grill is getting fixed & the light surrounds are only cracked, replacing the front blinkers, pulled the front bar off, the bar has a straight tear which can be fibreglass together, needs new front bar mounts, me my mate drilled & cut off the piece that holds the bonnet down as seen in pic 1 on the 1st post of this thread, so now to get a bonnet & a new top support plus to do a bit of straightening she will be getting back on the road :lol:
