    Get an estimate?

    In all honesty, the car doesn't look to be in such good of condition to begin with so I'd feel guilty charging someone to fix something that likely doesn't deserve it to begin with.

    You will be entitled to a real opinion once you have seen more than 1 picture.. a this point Im quite sure yours is all bias oppinion.
    Its been my project you dont hear me bragging about how many civics I beat or how phat and tight it looks.
    Yes, I am 17 years old as well, which can give you an idea that mommy and daddy did not buy this for me I do all my own work I pay for it all, once I get back I have a engine + tranny + Turbo to install and I will post that up once I am finished than you may have an educated oppinion on how much my car is worth.

    I was wondering if I could get the RC users skilled opinions as I dont have insurence so I cannot just roll down to the nearest body shop and have them look at it.

    It's not a "bias opinion" at all, I have exactly that picture to judge it by. The car is several different colors, very dirty, the paint it does have left is in pretty shoddy condition, it's hugely dented, and there is rust everywhere. My beater GSR looks 100000000x better than that, and I don't value it very highly... so I used that as a basis for comparison. It has nothing to do with a personal bias, I don't hold grudges like a 12 year old girl.. it has to do with what you're showing. If you want to prove otherwise, have at it.

    Very true, but you asked a question and I answered it as honestly as I could with what YOU provided. You want to change perceptions, then do it.

    Well, I already have an educated opinion on what your car is worth. It's got a f'd up tranny, it's rusted to shit, it's painted jankie as hell... to me, it's not worth a dime because I wouldn't ever touch it. I will, however; give you props for paying for it yourself and building it up as a project car. You have to admit, though.. it's in pretty sorry shape at the moment.

    Thing is, it's kind of difficult to give estimates on bodywork unless you are actually in the industry. There are so many variables, etc... and how the fuck would they match the paint? :lol:

    Is it not required that you have insurance in Canada, or do you not drive?

    I wouldn't have to, by the time I saw the damage any of my family members would have contacted THIER insurance adjuster and they would have me an appointment at a top-notch body shop. It wouldn't even be an issue in the least.

    Well for what I paid for it I did not expect a show car :D, you may not have touched it but, I would not touch a GSR I am not a big fan of them nor do I have the money for one.
    :lol: The retard that painted it before I got it did the worst paint job ever, I seriously think they hit someone with the car than quickly repainted it i and sold it, as the windshield was broke when I bought it and as was the sunroof with a dent on the hood. But the registrations cleared with out a problem so :shrug:
    Once I get back I will give you a better understanding of what shape my car is in.

    Why not? she backed into it and never told me so I had to interrogate everyone in my family to figure out who did it, I dont have an abundance of money therefore why should I have to pay for someone that damaged my proporty?

    I would say it would depend on her financial situation. If she's got plenty of cash to blow and is out buying clothes and whatnot, then there's no reason that she shouldn't front you some cash for the time she cost you. If she's hard up, then who care's it's your sister.

    That's what would be the determining factor in my opinion.

    its something, really she should have told you but didn't so be glad you got that, its not like someone who backs in to you in a lot is always going to leave a note so be happy wiht what you got.
