Default My lil slip up...

I hit a slick spot under throttle doing about 40... and well fought it back and forth about 3 times until it got completly sidways...

i then jumped the curb with the front end shown here...



did a lil landscaping for a guy...



Slid across a driveway...



and stopped right here...



when my driver side rear wheel hit this... and well ill have pics of the IRS all twisted up when i got to the tow lot...



and here is a total shot...



Here are some of the results of my lil incident...

The wheel... sorry the scuffs are kinda blanked out by a glare...



The alignment adjustment i made to the IRS



The brake disk... and you might can see a lil rim damage here...



And here is a pic of the spindle as you can see i made a slight modification to it...

got my estamate... slightly over $1000... with labor... this is y im letting a body shop handle it... this included like $350 for a tire.. $120 for a rim (no joke $120), a brake disk, alignment, a shock, didnt include a spindle (or what ever you call it on the back), didnt include a hub assembly, and didnt even look at the front end for damage... (i specifically told him to because of the to truck and the curb i slammed into)...

im afraid he is gonna be sadly dissapointed when the actual total comes in...

oh and 2 hours of labor is all he allowed for...
