Yeah, i was in a little car accident today. a 4wd 2 cars ahead of my braked suddenly and the car infront of me did the same. Then it was my turn but i braked a second too late and hit the Daewoo in front of me. My passengers, the lady in the daewoo and I were all unhurt just a little shocked and the Daewoo barely had a scratch on it. Unfortunately my swift took a full hit to the bonnet, upper front bar and the front cross members. The rest of the body is intact and the engine was not touched.

Dad and i have assessed the damage and we have come to the conclusion that WE CAN REBUILD IT! WE HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY!

Yeah the engine is fine.
Just happened driving along and out of the blue cars just slammed on their brakes in front of me and i came out second best. I had my brakes locked so the front of the car was facing down at a vicious angle so it really only pushed the top end of the front in.

I am taking a page from Pats book and getting straight back on the horse. tonight i was stripping everything off the car that i could.

Sorry to hear about & see the result of your accident Karl

When I was a young bloke the exact same thing happened to me. I hit a massive old Ford Fairlane. I hit it so hard the driver & passenger seats broke on the old Fairlane. I couldnt see the driver or passenger. They were both lying down flat in the car. Nobody hurt luckily. The guy in front of the Fairlane that caused the accident did a runner.

Good luck fixing the car

Cheers Steve

Not bad surprisingly.. I'll actually be back at the gym friday to test them out.

After a week on holidays I'm ready to get the engine out of the white gti and get it prepped for paint..

Hopefully I'll have it done this weekend, w00t

A little bit of an update on what i have been up to on my car.

Managed to get my hands on a nice little swift 3 door with a GTi body kit, GTi interior and the good old G13ba engine. I felt pretty bad about pulling this one apart because it was in very straight condition and drove well. I could have put a bit of money into it and got it back on the road rather than chop it up but i want my girl back hahaha. Collecting it from the goldy wasnt without a few drama's. Finding out our Turbo diesel luxxy's towing rate wasn't high enough and then borrowing a mates old landcruiser that leaked water through the sunroof. Then on the way home we popped a tyre on the landcruiser so we had to change it on the side of the bruce highway at 9 o'clock at night but we got it all home in one piece. Took it apart the day after i got it home. Also found out about a little miracle tool called a Spot Weld drill bit. It saved me a lot of headaches. Today dad and i are tech screwing it all up and positioning before we hit it with the welder. Dad will most likely weld it all together tomorro while i am at work then monday night i will start putting bumpers and guards back on.

I cant find my camera so pictures of this overhaul are fairly minimal. I will be parting out the other swift as soon as i have my car on the road. I am not reserving any parts for anyone right now.


I also might be able to get my hands on something pretty interesting for my car around new years. :twisted:

Karl
