So I'm driving through Milford, MA and this cavalier with four people in it goes by and I notice the driver had a pretty badass mullet so I stared (like an car accident...I had to!!) a moment too long and when I turned back to the road...the Ford escape in front of me wasn't moving and I was.....I had just enough time to jerk the wheel to the left and try and get around it and get some more space to stop. No dice....oncoming traffic. So below is the result.
The other car only had a couple of scrapes of course (#$%&@ SUVs). Ironically I was on my way to a junkyard so I already banged her out and replaced the fender. I just finished a few hours ago and don't feellike taking pics but I'll post some tomorrow. Actually pretty proud considering it was $25 to fix by myself. (I have the hood but only the corner of the old one is bent so I'm going to put off putting the new one on until I fix the rust and setup the washer nozzles) Anyway,
GOT AN H4, THANKS

What happened to her Ford Escape...

I love when it's the SUV's fault for the other person not paying attention....

Good, we're all glad....too bad I never said anything about it being the SUV's fault
. In fact, the title of the thread makes it pretty clear I blame myself. The #$%& SUVs is a generalized comment aimed at the outcome of collisions between ANY SUV and ANY passenger car.
SUV: scratch on bumper
Car: crumbled hood or some other major damage
So please don't jump to incorrect conclusions and give me crap before reading for comprehension a bit more

Re: Friday the 13th??...Nope, I'm just dumb! (EvilVento2.oT)

yeah it was easy. completely missed the wheel so nothing serious. Just some banging back into place, primering, and $25 for a new fender. Now if only I could fix my pride that easily!!!
We'll see how much the lady in the escape wants tomorrow....hopefully not much more than the cost of a new bumper (~$400)

Again...I'm happy to be enlightened by your deep thoughts there Jack Handy. Now please go unto others and spread your particular brand of wisdom somewhere else.

Perhaps if you were actually paying attention while driving, this thread wouldn't have existed

And yes....I remember when some moron who wasn't watching the road rear-ended my Escape....crunched up the bumper and had to replace the hatch.....but totally f'ed up the Camry's front end that hit me. All I can say is, thank God for my tow bar http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

No superiority complex....just merely stating facts. But anyway, life goes on.....

Impressive fix up job! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

No matter whose fault it is, it still sucks when you come out with all the damage and the other guy has nothing to show for it. Keep on fixing that awesome MK2 of yours- she's a hotty!

Re: Friday the 13th??...Nope, I'm just dumb! (yolkswgn)

Yeah, I did get that from you.....whats up?.....sorry to say I didn't put it to very good use! Instead of scrapping the whole thing I glued it back together (only broke off the loop on the end for the light) and leave it on for now cause moving the 5" rounds was a much bigger pain in the ass than I thought it was going to be!
Just got back in from installing the 7" round. I got all the work done on saturday in about 3 hours (except for the 7" round which took me a little longer to get).
Here's the result....





keep in mind I did a half-azz job on reshaping the rad support to acccept the lamp since I may get a new one and I just didn't feel like swapping the hoods since the extent of damage is not bad and the replacement hood is white!! This is obviously temporary and I plan on spending more time on this once I can feel my hands while working http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif So please keep the flaming to a minimum. Thanks
