    That is most definitely not a simple fix. If an Insurance company totaled a $90k vehicle with 300 miles on it, you can bet it is absolutely f*cked beyond belief.

    I just picked up a 94 with 5k less miles for $2200. Will add stronger ARBs and have just done a high roof mod. Will be sub $5k all in with less miles and lots of pm. And im looking at another local one for $3k. Corona-market makes for...

    dewd.....its not all about horsepower......its about power to weight ratio. go back to the drawing board and get yourself a sawzall and an old fj55 series. 😎 at 4000lbs - my gen1 1fz is making around 254.4hp effectively and $0 spent on...

    tough to tell- i started wanting to simply do the roof- and now its morphed into coating the full interior and im gonna thinsulate the roof inside before headlining- lifted seats- rear heater delete. etc. mainly due to waiting delays on...

    I deleted the rear heater under the passenger seat. and then threw lizard akin ceramic from 2cnd row footwell all the way forwards up firewall. surprising noise reduction as well which is nice. takes that tin can ness away big time.

    I hit the inside with 2 gallons of Lizard Skin ceramic. stuff works great. Then started slamming interior back in. P.O. kept the interior super clean- and the cloth seats are in cherry shape😁 Gave the seats a 2” lift kit.

    rear heater deleted. raising front seats 2-3 inches for underseat storage with the heater gone and some added legroom diatance to pedal on the drivers side. Did Lizard Skin ceramic on the entire interior roof. i did this on my old 80 and...
  • bugsnbikes
    the front one could be drilled just like the rear one is and you could have an install point. or just 3m tape it up and you are good to go. I ended up raising my roof 7" so those pics were from removal and reinstall of them albeit higher up.

    Such a cool build...
  • bugsnbikes
    yeah- tell them to pull off the roof crossmember brace and reinstalll it. the rear one is drilled for the light assembly......abd the front one has room to be drilled.

    i cant imagine your insurance wont salvage it if your frame and axle are bent along with damage to all front end panels. an adjuster will look at the gaps on hood, fenders,doors and if most are off -coupled with any frame and axle damage.....its...
  • bugsnbikes
    are front frame horns tweeked visibly? im also betting the front axle is bent at the ball end. based upon the damage to the car and that arm-..im betting the frame is tweeked a bit. with a,lifted rig and bumoer....cars typically get...

    heres a few from the inside... the rear lip above the window is a good 3" deep and im already thinking this is going to make a interior great storage shelf/vestibule if i mount up some soft netting to retain stuff when driving.
