So I hit a mailbox.....my 93 lude lost.

hi I'm a new driver and relatively new to the car biz and PZ, ive done a little research on howstuffworks but i don't have any hands on experience with cars and such. anyhow, me being 17, i decided to broadside a mailbox, and it just so happens that this was the strongest mailbox in a hundred miles, so my car lost.

the result:


I've been searching online for a new door first, in hopes that once i replace the door it might latch in by some miracle and i can drive it normally, and then fix the quarter panel at another time when i have enough cash. i found a silver 92 door at a nearby scrapyard which is fine cuz i need a paint job anyways, but the interior of the door is moldy whereas mine is intact. is it possible to remove just the interior and swap them around? also, talking briefly to a mechanic, he said the quarter panel is welded on in many places, making it hard to replace. the car in the scrapyard has a replacement panel too but how difficult would it be? could i do it myself? hope you guys can help =) thanks.

Re: So I hit a mailbox.....my 93 lude lost.

you could replace the door on your own, it's not that hard. if you don't have welding experience, the quarter panel will be something you shouldn't do on your own. you're lucky you found another 4th gen at the scrap yard, this will save you a ton of money.

strongest mailbox in the world:1

I would use the door card from your original door, to keep your interior matching.

Re: So I hit a mailbox.....my 93 lude lost.

mmm, looks like you did a little bit of frame damage on the lower part. Yeah you can cut off the bad 1/4 panel and weld a replacement piece in. I think you are going to have to get quite a bit of the frame down low.

Re: So I hit a mailbox.....my 93 lude lost.

um, x3 on the pics of mailbox. Seems to me like you were trying to drift. How else could you smash the side of your car like that?

If you were trying to drift, you should really look into legal ways to do so.

Re: So I hit a mailbox.....my 93 lude lost.

yea i wasn't TRYING to drift but i was going around a corner that turned out to be sharper then i thought and it was a little late to hit the brakes.... so i drifted, but accidentally. and nah i don't like drifting, all that squealing makes me worry for my car's safety haha. example a, seen above lol.

and the mailbox is like half an hours drive away, i was supposed to go fix it today but its pouring rain so that ideas out. when i go to fix it within the next three days or so ill take a couple pix for you guys.

oh and i finally got the door in place but it doesn't latch into place because of the quarter panel dent, so for now i have to bungee cord it into place. HAHA! i think i officially have the ghetto-ist car on PZ.....

@Codyh, where are you getting your panels? if its a website id be cool to know which.

Re: So I hit a mailbox.....my 93 lude lost.

@op good luck with it. Bondo is great stuff j/k. But seriously, be careful when you drive.

lol my folks did a 4"x4" 1/4" thick steel post and filled it with concrete after some kids in their hood did a drive bye with bat to it. Badass mailbox FTMFW.

@ codyh Cant drift with a fwd? (4g ftw)

Re: So I hit a mailbox.....my 93 lude lost.

Ya preludes that are FWD cant drift. Drifting is when you pop your clutch, spin the wheels, and go sideways. You only use the ebrake if you have a 240 with a ka, or a stock ae86. lol...

The first prelude you showed was power sliding (pulling ebrake and just throwing it side ways)(no control of angle or speed) the second video was a guy who just pulled and locked his ebrake in the rain and did donuts... Lol you dont know much about drifting..

Re: So I hit a mailbox.....my 93 lude lost.

Again thats not drifting. Thats power sliding.

Unless that was rear wheel drive and he was spinning the tires, but from what I can see his rear wheels locked up going into a turn. ;)
