exactly, an hours work tops donnt scrap it.

buy it back off the insurers and spend some cash puttign a new light and indicator in and the bumper to then it will be ok, you can worry about the bonnet crease when the lights out.

I crashed my car before, and only my car was damaged, oh and a wall, but wehn i worked it out, it was cheaper for me to pay for the panels and the repair work my self rather than claim off insurance, with a 250 excess and loose my no claims.

Teaches me right for starting my car in gear :?

Post by: DJ Dark on 22:49, Thu 13 April 2006
LOL

Sorry but made me chuckle
Title:
Post by: iety2004 on 23:21, Thu 13 April 2006
Made me chuckle aswell because i couldn't belive how stupid it was,

I had to try and steer it into a set of stairs in the workshop so it didn't hit a car on the ramp or the office,

got right jammed under there and lifted the stairs 2ft off the ground and manage to run offa a floor cleaner, so i had to kick that out of the wheel arch. :roll:

We live and learn :oops:

That can be sorted no bother.
Don't scrap it whatever you do-it will be another R5 off the road for ever and there getting rarer & rarer as the days go by.
Pity Im not from England - Id give you a hand no bother; ive loads of R5 stuff lying around here at home from my last project R5.
Also I must say Your Gorgeous! If I was over in England anytime Ill love to take you out :oops:  :D  :oops:

seriously dont scrap it! i wrote my honda off and fixed it up and seing as these are hard to come by cars you should bite the bullet! must only be a front bumper and headlight and i bet the slam panell will go straight with a bit of persuasion

Post by: r5matt on 23:17, Sun 07 February 2010
