Well here are the sad pics from my unfortunate accident last Friday. The storry is that I was pulling out of a parking spot and some nut case came flying through the parking lot at about 30-35 mph and made me go up onto this curb. If I wouldn't have moved he would have taken out my rear AND pushed me into the curb. The good news in that My insurance company gave me $2100 for the dammage...and that does not include the front bumper or a rental car. I still have about $500-700 coming my way. I just need to show a receipt to them and they will cut me another check.

I am currently looking for a new URETHANE front end...Blitz preferably but any will do for a good price. Check out this thread if you have any ideas: Thanks.WTB: Urethane front end

Hmm, I was on the freeway with my Kaminari Front and I hit the side curb and all it did was scrape the paint off... Interesting, proves the Kaminari fiberglass is made tough... Did you actually go over the curb?

I did go over the curb...it was about 6" tall

I don't think he even realized I had hit the curb...he went straight through the parking lot and down the street. Didn't even give me time to get a licenceplate #.

I only went foward about 5-10 feet about 5 or 10 MPH

Fiberglass kits are painful...very painful and unforgiving.

by looking at your pic, something would have been destroyed even if it was urethane.....
:werd: Going straight into a high curb is goin to ruin the urethane too. Either way you would have to get a new front.

Ya know...everyone is saying that (about letting him hit me). The problem is that you just dont think that way when a car is headed in a bee line straight for you :D . The good thing about the insurance is that it was filed under a no fault claim so my rates aren't going to go up.
