My poor EB!!

Had the worst weekend

the damage:

two outer rims of 17 inch simmons FR's
frnt right lower control arm
frnt right upper control arm
frnt right guard
frnt right lower sill
frnt right caster bar
frnt right disc
frnt right sway bar.
frnt right strut

cause:

loss of traction on front wheels (???) and proceeded into a gutter.

so far repaired most things .. cost me 900 bucks so far (all parts at trade/mates rates price)
i'm putting in slotted discs on the front and a 30mm sway bar.
car will be off the road for a week to two weeks.

just hoping i didnt hurt the steering rack or the chassis or anything up back.

Worst part
My wheels will be 1 to 2 months getting fixed.

any how .... how was your weekend??
