Poor SVT

Well due to my dumb@ss mistake my SVT has quite a bit of damage.

Long story short, the lesson I learned from it all is not to drive on wet grass.

Well, here are pictures from the day before I F'd her up.

Now for the carnage of it all. It's not like I totaled it or anything TOO major, but I did mess it up pretty bad





To repair it I'll need

  • SVT Mirror
  • Door
  • Drivers side Fender
  • New Tie rod
  • Paint

And an alignment. What ran into your car? Screaming yellow is such a badass color. Look forward to pics when repaired. Good luck dude.

Thanks for the comments on it previously looking nice!

I was being stupid on new years and decided to drive on grass. I didn't know the grass was wet because it was way to dark. Well there was a hill to my left when I was on the grass, I started to slide left down the hill, at this time there was no way for me to control the car, then BAM hit the tree.

I'm lucky enough to be able to make the repairs in my autoshop and Align it in my autoshop as well.

Hopefully I can save up and get her fixed ASAP.

Ouch. Yeah, that sucks. At least you have the skills and equipment to fix it yourself. Best of luck to you.

The greatest part is that our school has a paint booth and some sort of scanner thingy so that I can perfectly match the paint than a computer does some sort of mixy thingy with paints to get it right.

Sad to see another SY taken off the road even temporarily due to an accident
