Bought a salvaged car that was hit by a lady running a stop sign and hitting the front passenger side. Car needed quite a few parts (control arm, axle, caliper, bumper, fender, headlight, oil cooler, hood, crash beam, and airbags and seat belts) There might be a few more parts that I can't think of, but I've repaired some of the parts on my own. I haven't had the time to get an estimate from a body shop but I was hoping you guys would provide an estimate from experience on how much the body work will be. The fender apron needs to be removed and replaced. I've found someone who's junking his evo and he's willing to cut his fender apron off, so I got the parts pretty cheap. I'd only really need an estimate for the removal and addition of the fender apron! I uploaded some pics, hopefully they will help!http://i1278.photobucket.com/albums/...ps95e4f45b.jpg

My accident doesn't look so bad compared to some of these but I'll share my story..

So this past Thursday I was driving by the front of a grocery store when I came up behind a stopped dodge ram. After 10-15 seconds of being stopped and noticing there was no one in front of him I figured "oh he must be waiting for someone"

Myself and the vehicle behind me passed around the dodge ram and I stopped at the stop sign preparing to exit the parking lot. As I started taking my left hand turn out of the parking lot I noticed out of the corner of my eye a blue dodge ram cruising out of the parking lot in the wrong lane and....

Bam! (Dodge) Rammed right into my driver side door...

As I later found out he had actually passed the vehicle behind me, and attempted to cut me off on the street half way through my left hand turn. He admitted to the reporting officer after all the smoke settled that road rage was a factor. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not by any means a picture perfect driver, but this situation was completely unprovoked and I'm grateful for the independent witness that was behind me confirmed my story.

Anyways,

pics 1-3 were at the scene
pic 4 was the next day
pic 5 was the "damage" to his truck

Sad for you, hope you will be taken care of between your insurance and the other driver's insurance.

Damn dude really? I love my car even though I've only had it for a short time (since Christmas) but in the back of my head I hope it's just wrote off cause it'll never be the same... Even though it's probably not.

Well since you asked lol.. How hard of a hit does it take to cause frame damage in our cars? I read a post somewhere that it's an aluminum alloy frame which leads me to assume the frame can be pretty fragile. By my pictures alone what would you guestimate my damages? (american or canadian)

PS - no fluids were leaking, no air bags deployed and no engine/dash warnings came on
