Well, on Friday night I put my car into a concrete barrier. Busted the nose up pretty good and radiator. Couldnt tell how bad it really was being it was so dark. I go tomorrow to check the car out!!...been a nervous wreck all weekend...So does anyone have any experience with wrecking their car?? Could give me some advice, ive seen alot of Vipers that have been totaled with very little damage. How come???
thanks

What a first post. That truly sucks. Car is repairable though. Since the hood is so expensive, I would think one could just about total a Viper with only minor damage done to the correct places.



What year?

That is terrible! So glad you are ok though. You are not replaceable... the car can be fixed or replaced.

It's no problem really. Just whip out the Krylon and spray up all teh stuff that doesn't look right. You should be fine with just a few coats. BTW, I found a nice place to finance spray paint over 10 years.

Best of Luck,

Sorry to hear you wrecked. Maybe if you had photos, we could tell you what all it would cost to get that stuff fixed. Dont let anyone fool you, the viper has the same process to repair as any other car. Watch for Viper Tax, as they will try to screw you on cost of repair. Stay smart, maybe engage us with your estimates, and we'll let you know if its fair.

Well heres the story.....I was coming off the exit from the interstate and took the turn alittle to hard..the rear end broke out and I did everything I could to keep it from hitting the barrier..busted the front end, radiator, hood, but the headlights seem fine. Just got off the phone with the guys from Viperspeed, looks like something good might come out of all this...custom hood, frontend, and some more...ill get some pics on here pretty soon of the damage...just a shame she was in wonderful condition...by the way, i got qouted 12,000$ for a new hood!!???
