A bump, or a write off?

Bad times! But at least your ok, that's the main thing.

Cheers Ash 8)
Need loads of new bits to sort her out but mostly cosmetic things. The whole front end is crumpled in, somehow my front mount and rad survived :)! Going to need the old slam panel removed, all the front straightened out and a new one welded in.
Hopefully its not the end!

Ahh not good as Ash said at least your ok, two people have died in a crash 1 mile away from me last week, it makes you realise how precious life is.

On a positive note at least you'll have a nice new front end  8)

Thanks for all the kind words fellas. Basically it was a t junction i drive through about 5 times a day, looked right, looked left and nothing whatsoever either way. Pulled out while still looking left and there was a car right infront of me, god knows how he appeared there so quickly  :?  :(  Anyways i just glanced in time but it was too late, hit a mk3 5 door golf at about 5/10 mph  :(  His bumper is snapped a tiny bit where as the 5... well lets just say i was nearly in tears.
Matey has agreed not to go down the insurance route if i pay for damages so hopefully thats whats going to happen!  :P  :P  Bit of hope lol.
New plans are markeys louvred bonnet as a replacement, new slam panel welded in, new n/s headlight, new clear indicators, new bumper.

Seems to be that all the pipework is fine so lucky for that atleast. I think the fan has taken a slight knock but still working. Chin up!

Seems to be fine, only non-cosmetic problem is the fan sounds like its touching something it shouldnt be when its on. Makes a vibrating noise but doesnt seem to affect anything else. Bonza :)

Most of that may pull out TBH. I did a similar thing once & managed to pull most of it out, IIRC I tied the slam panel to a tree & reversed a little at a time till it looked right  :oops:  I don't reccomend you do it this way though  :mrgreen:
