    Eddie's 04 V hit revive and rebuild thread !

    Okay guys some of you might have seen my introduction in the general from. I picked this up from a salvage only shop in MO , the car is orginally from Texas , ( i wouldnt be surprised if the car belonged to a member on here) This thread will document me fixxing the car back to road worthy as well as some mods. The car is hit in the rear pretty good, but my father restores cars and does collision repair and paints for a living and has access to everything needed to fix the car including the frame mechine so its in the right hands and were ready to tackle the project. Ill be picking up the new quarter pannels this weekend if all goes well. All in all im happy with the car besides the rear area the car is very clean. im loving the black chrome wheels too.
    enjoy guys , ( be paient this will take some time ! )

    good luck, i just finished my 04 with a front hit, I took a ton of photos which helped a bunch. Hopefully being the rear you don't have as many little electronics, etc. to deal with. Get that V back on the road where it belongs

    Good luck with the rebuilt. I'm sure you'll make it as good as new. Looks like the perfect salvage to save.

    Must have been a hell of a hit. That unibody has buckling all the way up to the peaks of the rear pillars. Good luck! I'll be watching this one for sure.

    there black chrome from what i understand, i like them alot they do sorta give off a "bronze" or "gold" look though in pictures as well in person in some lighting. im not to sure exactly on the history of them.

    Re: Eddie's 04 V hit revive and rebuild thread !

    Okay guys FINIALLY UPDATES ! ive been ordering parts like crazy while my V sits at the shop ( thats what happens when your car is a favor and not an actuall job ). 2 days ago snagged a Mint V rear bumper on ebay for 199 no crack chips nothing primered and ready for paint. So i drove up to Seymour CT today to a yard called Seymour Auto , and picked up this complete clip for 900, all its missing is the 3rd break light ! PLease if anyone knows a place or a yard near them who has a cts and i can call and buy it at a reasonable price let me know ! ill be working on it in the next hour or so stripping out the useless shit i dont need and prepping it as soon as i finish up some class work on the computer. expect more pictures today of the clip as well as this week as parts begin to flow in as well as the whole car too .
