Default Back from the dead well kinda.....

Well my birthday weekend of railfaning and going out of state for the weekend got cut short Friday afternoon by 2 jackballs tailgating my rear all the way (About 4 miles) til I went to turn onto my street. Thank god I was still moving cause they stuffed me at about 50!!!

Ouch, that looks like a fairly decent hit. I hope your neck and back pain isn't too bad

Glad to hear you are alive and posting about it. I hope everything goes well. Is everyone doing okay?

Ya everyone is fine and thankfully no pain ( don't know or care about the punks that hit me, but their car is totaled, it'* the one with the massive nose damage in the pics)

I almost signed the papers on a 2013 Charger the day before so glad I didn't have that when this happened!!

Eh, it'll buff out!

Good to hear you're okay though. Looks like quite the smack.

Well she goes into the shop on the 16th so she won't look like this too much longer!

Other than that the push bar has been removed and I am working on deleting the Spot light (hole and all) the only thing left to get rid of are the wheels which are true 9C1 wheels and caps.

Now on my repair estimate they are going to try and toss a complete Walker cat back replacement system on it to replace the bashed up OEM one. I have already explained my disgust for Walker exhaust products and told my insurance that unless they put an OEM exhaust on my car for the sum of $986 they are only allowed to put on the Magnaflow #16708 cat back system which is stainless steel and wont rot out on me in a year like the Walker stuff will do. They have so far agreed LOL.

And that brings me to the Cat pipe that is on the car right now. It was stuffed with the rest of the exhaust and the steel braid piece of flex pipe just before the flange of the cat back is only about an 1 1/2" long right now and should be around 5" long and they have not yet determined if that will be needing replacement as well due to the damage to the rest of the exhaust system. I told them no other cat pipe goes on there other than a new OEM one cause I am not dealing with an engine light being on all the time LOL. As a back up I am trying to find a High Flow replacement cat and pipe for it but have so far had no luck with one for a 3.9L motor. Any ideas???
