    you can do it here, but once is salvaged marked it is deemed unsafe for the road and must pass government cerification first ( more than just a safety ) , I guess its a good program , but prohibitively expensive, I have really only see it done on a few Porsches of special vintage and it had to be put on a celette Jig . $$Salvage

    A vehicle branded "Salvage":
    has been written-off as a total loss
    can be repaired or used for parts or scrap
    If the vehicle is repaired, it must be inspected by an authorized technician and pass a structural inspection test. If it passes the test, it will be re-branded as "Rebuilt."
    Rebuilt
    A vehicle branded "Rebuilt" was written-off, branded as "Salvage" and then repaired.
    For a vehicle to qualify as "Rebuilt":
    the owners must have photographs, documents and receipts showing vehicle damage
    the vehicle must have been issued a Structural Inspection Certificate from an authorized technician at a ministry-licensed Motor Vehicle Inspection Station
