The cabbie dies Warning loads of pictures!

#1 Post by xadowbg » Fri Apr 01, 2011 6:17 am

warning for dose rover lovers faint hearth-ed pictures showing rover violence and exposed parts :P

a month or so ago i had an accident when a old man got out from a STOP sign and got in front of me. luckily i was only doing about 60 or 70 kph so the damage was only superficial..

i swear to you guys i cried like a baby when i saw the damage and i could have killed the old bloke!!! but he admit ed his fault and payed me in full..... i was very unsure what to do if to buy another one or repair mine.... and after a couple of days i got my decision clear!!!

Lets get in on the road again better then before with a total body respray!

then it came the sanding phase!!! luckily very little rust was found behind the rear bumber.

Image

right after the respray

The result!!!

When many people and friends told me to quit and give my cabbie to the scrappy because there was to much or it will never be the same again..... today i am happy i did not listen to them. it came better and stronger then before......
