ok here are some pics folks.

Image
this side was hit (the passenger side of the car is perfect)

Image
will need a new windscreen

Image
the dents on bonnet, the bumper and intake scoops on the bonnet are fine (no marks at all)

Image
roof and boot dents (note all other glass but front windscreen is fine, no damage to rear of the car or spoiler at all)

Image
this side of the car is perfect

Summary of the pics is that the damage is concentrated to the roof, bonnet and boot.

basically i have spoken to a panel beater and they said it will need the dent doctor to suck the dents out (not too expensive) or you can do that to just the roof and put a new boot and bonnet on. This would leave you only needing two new indicator lenses, new windscreen and the dent doctor to pull the couple of dents out that are on the drivers doors and front quarter but there are not many of these (probably a dozen)

Note no damage was dont to the paint itself, very smooth dents

The damage is not that bad but i will struggle to have the time to fix it as i work two jobs so basically I am seeing what people are willing to offer, if the offers are too low ill just keep it and slowly fix it (will buy a buzz box for the time being). Overall the car is still in great condition, interior is perfect, body is staight as a pin (misus the dents) and the driveline is great, quiet diff, new gerarbox, beaut sounding twin exhaust with EL GT extracotrs adn high flow cats, new startor motor, logbooks, new ignition systems, new suspension (lowered with matching shiocks and camber kit. This really is a great car, I will be very sad to see it go if it does

f**k ouch !!!

sorry to see the car in such a state. IMO if you want anything more than peanuts for it, you will have to get the damage repaired yourself, rather than sell it as is

I hate to admit it, but you will get more money by parting it out.

It is a great car, I really dont want to part it out its too good for that.

The photos actually make it look worse than it is to be honest.

A second hand bonnet and bootlid would solve that problem and the dent doctors has quoted me $400 to fix the roof properly, there are only a could of dents on the driveres side, none on the passengers side at all, he said he could pop those few out relatively cheap

It would make a great buy for someone and I dont think its worth penuts it just needs a little work for best results.

The only reason im selling it is for the same reason it was originally up for sale, im buying a house and really need something small and cheap to run

offers welcome via PM as long as they are reasonable

ok guys, have found a new car I want, i simply dont have the time to fix this one as i work 6 days every week and sometimes 7. It needs to go to an owner who has the time to fix the body work, dont be mistaken mechanically this car is perfect, it really is so smooth and quiet. the interior is perfect.

all the damage has been fixed (new windscreen, new lights, new genuine ford cetercap etc) all the car needs is the dents repaired.

I have made many phone calls about this and have genuine quotes and numbers which i will discuss with anyone who is genuinely interested in my car (supprisingly no where near as expensive as i thought!)

I wish i could fix this myself but it is unreasonable given my current working conditions, would suit an owner who has a second car temporarily and can fix this up on the side

open to genuine offers and willing to discuss

Ok I had a RWC done on the car yesterday, absolutely no problems, the mechanic commented on how good the car is, he was genuinely impressed. A little time and effort on the body and it would be a show car.

I AM NEGOTIABLE on the pice but am looking for approximately these figures:

$5250 - with no wheels/no rego/no RWC
$6000 - Wheels/RWC/No rego
$6500 - Wheels/RWC/REGO

Thanks

Would you consider a straight swap for a 2002 Nissan Pulsar?

Has 260,000kms but still drives great. 600km per tank.

He said he wanted a cheaper car to run because he is buying a house.

If you are not interested in the car, keep your comments to yourself.
