Default Crashed the NA turbo and now beginning something new

So.. My first car and all my hard work didnt ended very well after 7 years of ownership.

I was driving around at the maximum allowed speed. And then 6-8 meters in front of me something flew into (90 degrees)my lane from the left. Did an emergency brake and swearled to the left trying to avoid him but it was no luck.

It wasnt my fault and i had an allsirks insurance. So im trying to keep the car and also get money from the insurance/other car owner

Car had everything, from fully rebuild forged engine and suspsension mods and bracing and everything.

But here i will keep track of my new project. Havent yet decided that im going to do











And here are some pics how it looked like in good condition

If it isn't bent anywhere past the shock tower it can be rebuilt. How are you at welding? Just need a front clip.

From what i see the A pillar has bent a little.


Im not good at welding and i dont like driving in a ex totaled car. Its been declared economical totalled. At least thats what they are calling it overhere. It costs to much money to rebuild it.

I get a little nervous when the Germans start encouraging the Dutch to reanimate the bodies of their dead.

Judging from how far back the fender has been pushed into the door, it looks like that side is hosed. Doesn't take much to make the whole car dog track.
