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.

It went to Silverwater Smash & they quoted $6700 & my local panel beater who repaired it before said $5000 or lower depending on what is salvagable & I am thinking of getting a LTD.

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.
