After a closer ‘surface’ examination, it’s obvious there are some problem areas. The window rims are troubling, as is the bottom of the ‘A’ pillar on the passenger side. It looks cancerous. Once I dig in and start disassembling the whole thing, I’ll be able to see the extent of the damage. On the brighter side, there aren’t a lot of parts that are missing.
Up next, I want to do two things to the car:
- Make a list of what parts are missing.
- Make a list of what areas are damaged.
Then I can price the missing parts and come up with an estimate for purchases, and I can start to get an idea of how much repair work needs to be done.
