How do you know what part they are selling in each picture?

Some are identical pictures but they are listing different prices for different parts. I don't know about you, but I cannot read that stuff. I like that front bumper though.

thought i'd inform all of you about an update on my car... <chuckles to himself>

here she is...her good side! oh, but wait, it seems a little bit of her ass is exposed! whoops, she should cover up...


ya...where'd the ass go? do not worry, rear bumper is perfectly fine: it was ripped clean off by the tree <wink wink>. all i have to do is drill some new holes in the plastic to remount it.


ohhhhhhhhhh!!! there's the best part! that's where i caught the tree sliding now sideways/perpendicular to the road. the tree definitely slowed me to a stop once we hit it, did a 270, then came to a halt. quite a ride...lemme tell ya! don't think i'd wanna do it again though...unfortunate expensive lesson. And what lesson did i learn? ...that my rear suspension was TOO TIGHT. since i last ventured the curvy blind cornered park roads of Lake Buchanan outside Austin, TX a year ago, i have added beefier front and rear sway bars and a rear strut tower bar. i think the strut tower bar over did it--at least for this turn--as my rear end was soo stiff it slid out from the back; an ever-so-slow fish-tail.


and i can't let this little dent go unnoticed. this is what happens when you hit those dinky little metal reflectors from the side doin about 50mph. i saw the metal reflector afterwards...ya i definitely won!

but good news! this piece/panel is bolt-on! so no welding involved in the repair (which means i'll do it myself). However, for the unfortunate rear panel, its all welded in. so that's where the body shop comes in. ya, there goes all my future summer earnings. but she drives just fine except that the pummelled fender occasionally scrapes the tire on bumps.



so one final adieu to my damaged but still chugging batmobile...


don't worry, now i always park to try and show the right side, the good side of her.

so let's all give estimates as to how much you think it will cost to repair my ride...

(hey talskin, you wanna earn some money and weld for me?)

you'd think so! well i got an initial estimate from a trusted body guy of around 2,000. then i after i got all the parts i needed and installed a new front left quarter panel (sandstone gray -- but close enough to black), i got another estimate from another guy who works on dealerships' cars. $915!!! just the labor since i have all the parts. woohoo! so i'm working to pay for that, and it will probably be even less than that b/c i'll do some of the little things myself.
