It went for its assement last week or 2, the guy just took some photos of it and the rim, and just gave us a date to bring it back,

But we will see on monday what they decide to do in the assesors hands now

Would be good if it was a comp write off start fresh in another au maybe a ba,

Insurance value is about 7 on it, but we will see what happens

Well thats shocked the s**t out of me.
Its weird how some cars with f**k all damage get written off and ones with considerable damage get fixed.
Good to hear that your happy with the outcome.

did XR's come in that green? i cant remember.. my brothers old one which was sold to EL Venoms mum was a fake. it was the maroon which XR's didnt come in.

Yeah they did, its called Congo Green from memory. Stopped at BA, with one single BA GT being painted that colour.

Hmmm could even be Oxford Green which was introduced early 1998 on EL - NL?

Plans are to

Serivce the car

Finish rest of the paint work in the bay

Fix up anything which needs to be done

Then once everything is done ill consider a respray, if not, ill use it a a daily driver to work and save up for a newer car, but will cross that path when the time comes

Cheers Matt
