    so it happened today..

    i was going 45 mph...very carefully i had 2 buckets of saltwater with live coral..so i was not going very fast at all..then my tire blows out..next thing you know I am swerving towards the median and i strike against it. At this point I am facing traffic and i fight the steering wheel to fix my positioning and i end uhm on the right shoulder...and here is the damage.....what to do now...

    There's so much behind this car, I'm sure there is behind all our cars. I worked for two years, I knew what I wanted since I was 16 finally at 18 I bought my own graduation present, not daddy or mommy but me. It actually kinda hurts to walk outside and see her just sitting there like that. But im here alive, there was slot of traffic and for a reason they all missed me. Now it's time to get up and start working on her..

    Time to get a ram air hood to fit with the new front end!! Buy the parts off of ebay so it will be chaper or find a wrecked or a part car, and just do the switch of parts that you need.

    With the damages it looks like in the pic there shouldn't be anything wrong with the motor, and hopefully you didn't warp the frame.

    I am almost sure you can re-use the bumper cover and fender so be carefull when your removing them, if it has small tears and cracks a good bodyshop can fix it for you

    Those corals could have saved your life Getting a blow out @ 65+ could have been so much worse.

    Still sucks though. But, hopefully won't take you too long to get her put back together and better than ever
