Most people would have gave up when they seen the first pictures. Frame damage, radiator/condencer smashed no head lights, hood smashed, Bumper gone. a-arm shashed tie rod broken, axle snapped, took me one night... and i had it driving like it didnt happen, oh, and 1,077.5. (axles, tire rods, a-arm, breaks, struts, etc.)
