    In your state will you be able to get a clean title for it or will it stay salvage? Nice work.

    Yes this wasn't intended to be a clip job but after I purchased the clip and saw the results of the frame work (which came out amazing) but with a hit like it was it will come out much cleaner clipping it. My farther has been doing collision repair his whole life as well as painting so him and his shop buddies have plenty of experience. So yes cut and weld coming right up. As far as titling the car I have herd of a few actually successfully transferring a salvage to clean j actually know someone who accomplished this I'm not sure how but after the car is on the road and finished I will be doing all I can to get it clean if possible if not then so be it doesn't bother me. Keep posted guys!

    ----------

    Also frame work was done from my farther friends shop so I can't really tell you how as I don't even know it was sort of favor job hense it taking 2 months

    i went through the salvage -to- clean title here in NJ for a motorcycle several years ago. It was very similar to doing a car and isnt hard at all. Just take pictures of it prior and from every angle, then take after pics. They tell you what angles they want. Also keep all receipts of parts purchased along with all VIN numbers from parts cars. That way they can see where you got all the parts from legally. You might still have to go to Trenton to do paperwork and get the appointment at the nearest specialty inspection station. You bring pics and all documentation to your appointment with the car, and hand it over then sit in the waiting room for up to an hour. DO NOT bother the inspectors, let them take their time. My 99 Honda CBR600F4 took only 20 min, but a car that was there got failed because the owner kept walking into the garage to check on the progress. Now keep in mind it will be a clean title but will also state it has a salvage history.

    Wow thanks for the info! Appreciate it. I know i have to go through a special inspection just to get the car on the road as a salvage title but so far I've been keeping track of all receipts and vins as well as photos. Good info tho man thank you. I'm having alot of fun with this car already and enjoy working on .
