    Atlantis Blue first car (Dead) and white "Hot Rod" Corsa

    hopefully will be a repair thread, started stripping it down today, hopefully people can help me, like what i will need to buy to repair it.

    Cheers

    Dan





    first i removed the crash bar



    main damage not too sure what i can do with it





    i did manage to get the slam panel a bit straighter which also straightened the main damage a bit





    also damaged the power steering pipe but it doesn't leak, guess i should still replace it



    also the radiator is also out now

    lot more work has been done:

    pushed the slam panel back up and pulled it out, looks close to how it use to be







    tried shoving a bar in to bend it back out, this didn't work, any other ideas?



    took the bonnet off and stood on it, almost back in the right place



    might be back on the road sooner than i thought

    I'd let them write it off it was me, it's not like the cars in a mint condition, isn't half of it still in primer?

    Ah. Well on second thoughts then, keep up the good work!

    Damage doesn't look that bad.

    They can still write it off, can't they?

    When my girlfriend had an accident, she had to wait for them to tell her she could fix it.

    Also, that slam panel looks like a good idea, saves you beating the hell out of yours

    already bent the hell out of it and it almost looks the right shape, if the new crash bar dosnt fit then i replace the slam panel, if it does i will make sure every thing else fits right and then maybe reinforce it with metal plates.

    these are just plans at the moment, crash was only yesterday, still sinking in

    Well if it's for 1.0 and 1.2 then it already supports 12v and either 8v or 16v so chances are yeah it will fit
