Icon8 LAST WEEK..... BLOWS!!!!

WE'LL LAST WEEK PROBABLY WENT ABOUT AS BAD AS IT GETS. I HYDROPLAINED (HOWEVER YOU SPELL IT) COMMING OFF OF A EXIT RAMP... TOTAL BS. WOUND UP IN A DITCH. CAR DIDN'T LOOK BAD AT ALL. DROVE OUT OF THE DITCH. CALLED A TOW TRUCK BECAUSE MY CAR WOULDN'T TURN RIGHT TO WELL. NEXT DAY FIND OUT THAT THERE'S OVER 2 GRAND OF DAMAGE. GREAT JUST MY LUCK. ANYWAYS HERE'S SOME PICS.

Re: LAST WEEK..... BLOWS!!!!

I ORDERED NEW SIDE SKIRTS AND FRONT LIP. HAVE THEM NOW. ANYONE WANT TO PURCHASE THE FRONT LIP AND OR THE DRIVER SIDE SKIRT AND A BRAND NEW PASSENGER SIDE SKIRT THAT I DONT NEED? I AM ACCEPTING OFFERS. THEY ARE PAINTED ALSO. THE DRIVER SIDE SKIRT HAS A CRACK BUT IT IS UNDERNEATH AND WILL BE A EASY FIX. THE FRONT LIP HAS NO CRACKS AND ALL TABS ARE FINE. JUST HAS SOME VERY MINOR SCUFFS ON IT THAT CAN BE EASILY PAINTED OVER. AND THE PASSESNGER SIDE SKIRT IS BRAND NEW. NEVER BEEN BOLTED ON. JUST POST ANY OFFERS. THE DRIVER SIDE SKIRT AND FRONT LIP HAVE ONLY BEEN INSTALLED FOR 2 WEEKS ALSO. I JUST GOT THEM.

Re: LAST WEEK..... BLOWS!!!!

I'm confused as to where your supposed $2,000 in damage is coming from....? Did you destroy the engine while it was still in the engine bay or...?

Cause from looking at those pics just hose the car down, maybe remove the lip kit and hose it down and you should be perfectly fine...

There must be stuff I can't see or something to total $2,000 cause I see like $300 in labor....lol

Re: LAST WEEK..... BLOWS!!!!

the 2k+ in damage is that i had to buy a new spindle, knuckle, wheel bearing, lower control arm, front support beam, radius rods, and new side skirts and front lip. i know the pictures don't look bad at all, i thought that i got of the hook so well when i looked at my car. that is until i got a phone call the next day and heard over 2k in damage... i was so pissed and shocked at the same time...

Re: LAST WEEK..... BLOWS!!!!

yea i didnt go through insurance because i didnt want the points on my licence. i didnt think it was that bad so i figured what the heck its worth a couple hundred bucks. little did i know. but yea it could have been way worse because i was literally 2 inches from a guard rail. i missed by nothing. i thought i was going to hit it. i went back the next day and my tire marks were like right up against the rail. it looks like i should have hit it for sure. i got soooo lucky.

insurance wont put points on your license at least not in NYS. idk a state or w.e that does that. the insurance company would just increase your insurance bill every month
