Time to Part Out?

I worked so hard getting everything in great condition. Marty rebuild, stripped and dynolined interior, 4.10 gears and then in an accident.

So, maybe it’s time to part it out. Damage to rear fender and drivers side rear light..

Ok maybe not and just some touch up paint. Still bummed. Box truck clipped it going around a left turn into a parking lot. Of course he claims I was moving.

That's minor..did you get a police report? that can be fixed easily..all I see is a cracked taillight and and deep paint chip..can either fill in chip with touch up paint a few times and then sand and buff or body shop for prolly a few hundred. light can be replaced.


I know it's bummer when time , money energy spent to make it clean and crisp..I see flaws in my car,,paint chips etc..that others don't see

No responsibility assigned. He said she said. I already have a spare light but that area did get dimpled in a little. Once I done with claim against their insurance, figured I would get some touch up paint.

I think you should put a rear clip on it. Save it!!!! A little pulling and some elbow grease should have her back on the road in a day or two.

Darn Greg!
Sorry to hear about the accident.... especially after all the time, effort and money you put into your Marauder.
It'd be a shame to part it out now.

Not really parting it out it is just a dimple really. It is a daily driver. Going out to drive the 85.5 SVO now

You’ve done an amazing job fixing that car, sucks to see this happen but I have a feeling you will keep moving forward.
