This is the aftermath of someone doing a Uturn in front of you! :mad:



About £6000 damage so probably written off, I`ll put parts for sale if it is.

Have you already had a quote of £6000 for the damage?

From what I can see it looks as if a new bonnet, bumper and offside (or is it nearside - I always get them confused) front panel and it would look as right as rain. Is there damage behind the panels to the engine etc?

HOLY CRAP!

man..........feel sorry for u.....but i do think its close to £6000 damage

from what i can see......
bumper
lights
IC pipes
new wheel maybe wishbone too
bonnet
wing
inner wing coz it looks like its been pushed in

now guessing:-
chassic might be bent
( if im right......turbo and induction are in the left handside ) might get some damage from the inner wing being pushed in
drive-shaft
cross member ( u know.....that thing which looks like a long bar in front of the car behine the bumber........IF a skyline has one....coz scoob does )
steering might be out of line....
chamber and toe angle will need to be done

and er.........OH! new paint! :D

but...........i can be wrong

reason for all my loada crap above coz when my bro crashed the Scoob it only looked like a new bumber, fog lights and head lights and a front radiator......but.....it wasnt and it cost him 4k for fixing it

crap innit :(

There is damage that the picture doesn`t show.

The wheel thats bent is actually pushed back about 10inches out of line and actually presses against the innerwing stopping the wheel rotating. The track Rod arm is a perect `L` shape instead of being straight. Basically the wheel took the whole impact. The wheel turns out now with the steering wheel straight.

I`ve been told by all the tuners etc... that the damage will be to subframe, all suspension components,front cross member. Also the front bumper is £600+VAT and the rest of the parts come to £3500 excluding the wheel and tyre. Labour is about £2000.

The car is a write-off! gonna cost £7000+ to repair. I can swap parts for people but I`ll need something to exchange them back onto the car with.

Next motor is a GTR!
