Poor Poor vert
Thursday, August 30, 2012 10:50 AM
Well I was leaving work the other day and someone backed straight into the side of my car. Repair estimate was $3700 and the estimated value of the car is $1900. So I'm waiting on a call, but we all know this means totaled. The good news is it is structurally sound enough to drive and the claims adjuster assured me I could buy it back. So I'll be taking a battery powered grinder to the junk yard and trying myself at body work.

Good luck man. GET A MUCH bigger piece than you "think" you'll need.

I second that, much easier to cut off what you don't need later than to come up short. Good luck man, I think the door area will be the hard part.

you'd be better off with a sawzall and a drill and bits, take the whole panel and do it up that way, or look on ebay for somebody selling one, i think tabs got the one for the vert for like 50 bucks brand new.. I think don't quote me on the exact price. you can also look at the old thread from when they replaced said panel... might give some insight
