R32 Front End Repair?

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is in the right forum but anyways, :D

Ok just wondering if anyone has had this happen to them and if not all advice would be great, thanks!

my mate crashed his r32 (whats new lol) and his radiator is gone (leaks but still able to drive it with it in it until after you stop that is when it pisses out coolant and water!) would you think it would be okay to drive like (20-30km)??????

intercooler and headlights were both gone but has bought new ones (need the front bumper cut to fit) - has new piping aswell

the bonnet is slightly muntid may need a slight bending

none of the piping or suspension was effected thank god and the front bumper would need a respray and there is no pulling in the sterring etc.

how much do you guys think this should be to get repaired. Just he doesn't want to take it to some place that will overcharge to the max.

Any help would much appreciated. THought whereelse but skylines australia to post this because someone must know something about this.

Really not adviseable to drive with the risk of it running out of water and stuffing an engine as well.

But, if he MUST drive it, just fit the radiator cap on the first catch position ie don't lock it down. That will prevent water splashing out, but will prevent the system pressurising and assisting with the rate of water loss through the broken segment of radiator.
