Got Boxster Back

So I finally got the Boxster back after way too long getting repaired after the little old lady ran the redlight in August. Here's some before, wrecked, and mostly fixed pictures (still needs some touching up and realignment in a few places). Only silver lining to this, I really like the look of the Aerokit pieces I added.

July


August (notice the Chevy Corsica that caused the damage to the left)

Car looks great!

I think you almost need the side skirts with that bumper.

The car looks great!
I added the side skirts on my car also, but no aerokit front bumper yet. Where did you get it?

Little Old Lady

What did you do with the little old lady. Me I would show her the repair bill and ask her to pay for the upgrades. Just kidding, looks great.

Thanks for the compliments guys.

MN 986: I got the bumper from a guy who had it listed on craigslist, he then listed it on the classifieds here just before I bought it, you can probably still find it in the old classifieds posts. The one I bought was never used and had been sitting for a few years. You can order them though, but they're $$$$.

Crios: I did see that car several times in my photo searches and it's a fantastic car. With the Techart wheels, sport seats, litronics, and full Aerokit. I'd love to find a reasonable set of those Techarts or the RUF wheels and turn these into a spare set. Not so sure I'm gonna do the rear wing, it's another $1400 or so unpainted and I'd rather spend that cash another way.


JCB: The little old lady went to court, and they ended up charging her with nothing, completely waiving the fine. I just hope her family didn't get her another car. She turned 89 the week after she hit me. And when we were in court she had no clue where she was or how to get out of the building.
