Title: The President was struck by an idiot!
Post by: Hammer (Avi) on May 11, 2013, 06:08:48 PM
While traveling east bound on Warner going to work someone decided to take a left turn right into me, and a week before Moab!!!
Pics or it didn't happen right?

That blows, hopefully repairable, but I dont foresee goneMOAB12 in your future. You could always go and ride along with people, Filip did that the last 2 years.

Good Luck Avi.

As long as there is no frame or underlining structural damage, it appears just a new bumper, fender, hood and some other misc stuff, most likely not a total loss.

Not sure there isnt frame damage, so far some bent lower control arm mounts and some other minor stuff.  The insurance company gave me the ok to get it fixed and send them the bill.  So I am still optimistic.

Wow, already, hopefully you can have it back by Saturday to still make Moab.

Not to be a downer, but I had just my driver side fender replaced, painted, etc... after Moab at ABC Nissan Collision Center last year and they had my rig for 8 days, hopefully that's not the case for you and you get a shop that's quick!

I wont be fixing the fenders before moab.  I told them I wanted to deal with the body work after Moab.  Hopefully it will be driveable next week.

Glad you are OK Avi.  Sucks to hear about the truck.  On the bright side, you have a perfect excuse to get an aftermarket front bumper.

One way or another youll get thr bumper at Moab. Just hope no frame issues so the front bumper lines up.

I think there is a mod day in store Sunday in Moab!

Man, he took a good chunk out of your fender, but looking at the pics I'd say your X won that little brawl. It'll just have a few scars and come out tougher from it ;D

Definitely hope to hear that bumper went on up there and that it's awesome!

we got 4 out of 6 of the bolts in the bumper.  Once I get ahold of the insurance company and figure everything out Ill have the frame puled and get those other 2 bolts in.
