Front end crash, removal and repair.

Here are a few pics of my new Prelude I just bought. Lots of work over the winter including the 4ws and accessory swap, straightening/shifting of the shock tower, frame and engine components - car had 76k kms (og) at time of impact. Overall, the car is still tight and fresh. It will be a long lasting runner once it's completed - but lotsa work. Some of the pix show how hard the impact was. The front wheel's angle shows how much the shock tower moved. The passenger side frame member is really bent outta shape - but will keep in one piece. BTW...that's the original Honda battery - it's still good.

man thats alot of work, its almost worth it to buy a donor car for parts, say a non working 3g for healights, fenders hood etc. those parts are going to cost MUCH more than a donor car would, think about it.

The funny thing is...this WAS going to be my donor car. It's condition is just too good to chop up and mine has some rust issues goin on (and on and on and on). The p/o just about collapsed when he found out I was going to dismember his baby, but relieved when he found out we decided to turn it around and use my current 4ws as the donor.
