Damn Jim. I’ve been away for a while and I come back and see this. Sorry to hear about what happened, but glad it is all getting taken care of.

I am just surprised with that amount of damage that insurance didn't try to say total loss.

Nope. They covered it.

They should sue your driving instructor!
Let me know when you are ready to put it on and I'll pop right over.

Almost one year ago, on Veterans day, wheeling the Martinez Canyon trail near the Gila River, the Precious was involved in a trail accident. There was a severe washout, a wall to the left, and the only way to negotiate it was to put your tire on the wall.



Unfortunately, the Bushwhacker flare caught the wall and rolled down the side of the precious.

You can see the result
Sad

The drivers door would not open fully, the fender was toast, the driver door skin creased, and the rear suicide door involved as well.

Anyway, after much negotiation with the insurance company, and the EXCELLENT service provided by Central Collision on Grant Rd in Tucson, the Precious has been painted, Stem to Stern and is now in the process of being re-assembled, slowly and carefully. Central collision was an AWESOME company to deal with and exceeded all my expectations!. I could tell they knew their shit when I saw all the classic cars they were refurbing.




New LED's in the Exp1 rear bumper:

And some (They grow on you) KC Highlight covers.
Repaired the Warn 10000 winch (Solenoid) while the bumper was off.

The roof Rack is now Powder coated in black Hammertone.

BEFORE:

AFTER:






There's still more to do:
    HighLift mount re-installed
    LED bar re-installed
    Light Switches for the lights
    SIDE LED lights (Vision X)
    Rear Amber?
    Bushwhacker Flares
    Snorkel?

Stay tuned.

Funny thing is there were 20 vehicles there, 19 made it no problem. One was even an FJ. The Bushwhackers were just too wide that day.

Thanks Man. I'm trading Mod_Muscle some Lexus wheels for it. You may get a request for that mambo hole saw.
