Bonnet and Right Fender

Their is this XR6 Manual I am interested in buying. if I do get this car I will treat it like a king :). The thing is its $3700 at my local car dealer joint and has a smashed side me thinking tree branch or something fell on it. Its on awesome looking car though. I am thinking about keeping the front spoiler as it looks awesome. I think I might have to replace the lights at the front though :( which could cost a bit probably damaged battery holder and surge tank as well. What I am interested in is how much the bonnet and right fender from a wreckers will cost any colour I dont care what colour at this stage I might do a paint job over time :S.
Please have a look at this car and give me a price you recon it will cost to get it on the road!!!!!!!

Re: Bonnet and Right Fender

That looks a little more than cosmetic, The front bar will need to be repaired/replaced for sure, I cant really help you with prices but it LOOKS like the front subframe/radiator support panel has been damaged, which may cost you a bit to repair if you dont know any panelbeaters. IF you do know a panelbeater, take him to have a look over the car, but as I said, it looks a little more serious than replacing a few panels

by the way it looks as though the drivers run underneath a 4x4 tray back or something

Re: Bonnet and Right Fender

Chat to a panelbeater, take him lots of photos if he can't come to the car.
As six said, looks as if some structural work will have to be done.
I imagine you could do it for well under $6 grand, I'd suggest $1 grand but it really depends how much work needs doing on the structure of the vehicle.

Re: Bonnet and Right Fender

Re: Bonnet and Right Fender

That has ran into somthing, not had somthing fall onto it.
Even if it did cost $6000 to get onto the road, its still a reasonably cheap XR.
You might even be able to get the bonnet, front gaurd, bumper, rad support panel the correct colour from a wreckers, so that would cut the costs.
Them later you could put the ugly copy XR/GT front end back on.
Good luck, keep us posted.
