View Full Version : body work pics please...need to come back from the accident

09-17-2008, 01:54 PM
I just purchased my car back from the insurance company after they totaled it.

I need to install a new bumper cover and repair the driver side skirt. I was running the RS4 replica bumper with V2 sides previously. The car looked nice and I'm probably just going to return it to the way it was pre-accident. However, can you guys post up some body work combinations you've done?

I searched but a lot of pics have been removed.

I'm also thinking about shaving the door molding so, if you have pics of that I would be interested (especially if you shaved with V2 sides)

Thanks guys. [wrench]

I don't believe the metal behind the skirt was damaged. I'll post up pics tomorrow if I can get my digicam.

Here's the car in question prior to the accident:


For the front I'm likely going with the RS4 replica, shaved washers, and possibly filled euro plate area. Possibly going to shave the painted A4 lower door trim too. So, if you guys have done something similar post up some pics.

looks good!....for the sideskirts did you just cut the existing door moulding or did you buy the S4 moulding?

how much was damaged on your car? will it easily pass inspection to receive a salvage title?

the final estimate for damages came to around eight grand. what is needed to pass inspection for the salvage title?

regarding the molding...it is a4 molding cut and painted.

i'm not sure on the guidelines. it has to be fixed as good as it came from the factory basically.
