Found me a 5th gen...maybe

So i was looking on craigslist for a 5th gen bc i want one very badly, currently have 2 4th gens, and im selling. I came across this ad and was wondering what your guys opinions would be as far as going to check it out and perhaps buying it to fix the accident area (i go to a tech center for auto body repair) thanks!

Re: Found me a 5th gen...maybe

wel, $1500 aint bad. but youll need a new trunk, quarter, taillight, bumper, materials, and there might possibly be frame damage. i guess it would be a good learning aid for you. i went to school for autobody too, and its saved my ass many times

Re: Found me a 5th gen...maybe

I'd think working out the kinks with that crunched rear quarter would give you problems, if not run up the bill if you take it to a shop. Speaking of, seems like a good idea would be to show a shop some pics and see what they say it'll take to fix it, just to get an idea. I wish I was a body person, or knew one. Then my life would be set.

Re: Found me a 5th gen...maybe

Well you know what the extent of your skill is, you are looking at the hardest part of a car's body to fix. So if you believe you can do it then go for it, but if you are iffy if you can handle it or not you may want to pass on it

The damage dosn't look that bad, if your a bodyman it should be a straight forward job. The quarter can probably be roughed out, you might need to skin it, but there's probably no frame damage from the looks of it. Get a new deck lid and bumper cover, then bondo and paint and it'll look clean.

Re: Found me a 5th gen...maybe

thats a nice deal if everything else on the car is in good condition (engine trans inter suspension) thats a steal i work at a body shop and compared to the rest of the wrecked cars i seen and fixed thats not bad at all but fisrt get under the car where its hit and check the frame make sure is not bent cuz if it is is gonna be a little more expensive to fix that corter panel is a quick fix maybe 2 3 hour labor on the frame machine a little bondo new light new bumper maybe im not sure cuz i need to personally see it maybe the trunk is fixable but if u can find one in the junk yard is better and wont cost much here they cost maybe 80bucks in total u might spend like 1000 with paint labor and parts well thats how much it would run u here i dk where you at or whats the rate there but like that dude said take some pictures to a body shop see what kind of estimate theyll give you ooo and dont go to the cheapest one cuz youll get what you payed for TRUST ME
