Received this 944S2 in from a client after it had a bin lorry reverse into the side of it. As you can see from the below pictures she was not in a good way and due to the impact she was not drivable.
The damage sadly was not limited to just the body, a good few mechanical parts had suffered and out first job was to investigate the full extent of the problems.

So we now had a list after extensive measuring from corner to corner and component to component.
- Rear quater panel (replace)
- Drive shaft
- Drivers door (replace)
- Drivers side sill (replace)
- both front wings (passenger side was damaged by the recovery company
- Rear trailing arm and its mount points
- Rear drive side wheel
While the car was in, it had a few other jobs taken car of such as rust around the windscreen, bonnet and complete front end repair, light clusters and a few other bits. The rear quarter and the sill was cut off and replaced.
We had concerns with colour matching so we ended up sending a part of the car away for a full paint match to be made. What we received back was perfect 🙂 so we could get started properly.
let the painting commence. 🙂 once painted we started to tackle the rebuild and the other mechanical repairs. As you can see in the right picture, the wheel is not straight yet.
Once we had completed the mechanical work, MOT and flat down/polish we were very happy with the results and privileged to be involved in the cars recovery to the roads.
