Everything is fixable 

The only person who could quote this with any accuracy would be a smash repairer

But, with the stupid prices these things are going for it may well be worth the outlay, which I assume would be large, even for a fix with basic respray 

Or, better still, give it to me.....

If it would have been be sellable (before crash) for anything >$20k, then it is very likely fixable. Provided the insured value is the same.

I had the front of my car extensively destroyed about 9 years ago when it was probably <$10k value and the cost to repair was ~$6k. The insurer came super close to writing it off.

Parts will be more expensive now, which could make your repair price a lot higher than the $6k mine was, but so long as the fraction of (insured!!) value is low enough, they will repair. But, if your insured value is market, or agreed at <$15k....it might be a touchy area. The insurers are generally not willing to admit that the market values are as high as they appear to be.

Yeah, my mate stacked his 86 into a wall last year and bent the front-right chassis rail. It all got fixed in the end and set him back about 600,000 JPY. That included fixing the crumpled wheel well, straightening the chassis leg, all the body parts, windshield and paint. There's a guy near me that seems to pull chassis legs straight all the time on old Toyotas and then there's the Yashio Factory guys that cut and weld the entire front sections of Silvias. You can get it done but budget high.

Tolerances probably won't be perfect but you can likely get it pretty good.

Definitely write it off.

In an unrelated point, I'll give you $20 each for the tail lights, boot and rear bumper  :devil:

    • I forgot I did jump it with a 200 amp battery charger before I got a new battery. Is there wires that might have fried or like a immobilizer that could be causing the issue?
    • could cause lean. almost never fail in any meaningful way. My 25DET Neo will cruise at ~400°, pre-turbo. Literally in the turbine inlet. Max load is ~900°C.
    • Thanks for your reply  So for you it's not related to the fuel pump and fuel regulator  What temps should I see on the highway idling at 3k in 6th gear ?  So maybe the CAS is wrongly set, I will remove some advance to see thanks 
    • Hi SAU Team My son and I inherited a very unloved 2002 V35 with a VQ30D. Unfortunately there was a snapped rod in piston one and after stripping it down today the only good parts left are bolt on accessories crank and heads + 5 remaining pistons. Awesome hole in the side of the block. We just picked up a VQ35DE for a couple bucks that has 2 snapped rods but otherwise bottom and top end are good for rebuild but no harness or ecu. While i continue trawling thru the threads here i was wondering if anyone has tried any stoking or de-stroking VQ engines with DD/DE combos and had any experience with the direct injection systems?   Were not specifically building it for performance or throwing a spooly boy on it but rather the challenge:      
    • Hi All. Id like to introduce the project my son and i are building which is a V35. Ive built quite a few A,L,N and SRs over the years and we found a cheap V35 with 6 pots and decided to have a bit of fun with it. Look forward to learning from the knowledge base here and  hope to contribute where we can.
