After 2 and a half months sicne the accident my V has finally been fixed. It was gruesome waiting so long and driving a 91 civic until it was fixed and dealling with insurance. Total cost was 16grand to fix. The other guys insurance didnt want to fix it but they ended up having to fix it so now shes back and it's awesome! Now time to tear it up at the track! :cool2:
I would like to thank everyone who helped in the process helping me locate the warranty papers and the power steering pump pulley and all the advice. Finally be able to do some CO events now! Let me know if you guys need any help if this ever happens to you!

The accident.

Well the guys insurance tried putting aftermarket parts on my car which wouldve voided my warranty so I argued with them back and forth until I get my OEM parts back.The paper someone on this forum gave me helped alot in convincing that it OEM or nothing.

Just the hail damage. It will be getting fixed by Dragon Race Engineering, the same guys who put the 3.3L Whipple on another V1 owner's car. They are a really good shop.

That must have been the tow truck driver's print. I always closed the lid with one finger on the ledge just under the license plate or two fingers on the 3rd brake light...
