I think I am going to make an adapter. After looking at it again today there isn't enough metal around it to make it fit well.

Today I give my Brother's 2001 Malibu back since i got mine running. he bought this beater for $500 because it needs a new ignition switch (among other things). You have to sit and Wiggle the key for sometimes 15 min before you get it to unlock and turn. kindasad.gif

So apparently everyone in Miata-ville seems to think they're going to want to total my car... I don't see how, it's like $1,000 in parts at the most... I guess it's body shop labour that's the issue, but I can do it myself if it keeps it from being totaled. I don't want to go through the car shopping ordeal all over again... Tomorrow is seven days, so at the earliest I'll know tomorrow. Tuesday by the latest.

as long as the frame isn't tweaked and you just need hood, nose, fender, headlights I'd tell em to give the max they can without totaling it, and they can pss off and like it. smile.gif

The only damage to the uni-body is where the passenger side of the core support and the tip of the chassis next to the headlight is pushed in like an inch, I could go out and fix it in less than an hour and no one would ever know the difference. I already checked the suspension and all of the chassis seams and it's all good. From behind the wheel you'd never guess it had been in an incident. Honestly it's kind of pissing me off/worrying the Hell out of me that everyone on the Miata forum says they'll total it... I'm willing to do the work myself if they'll give enough to cover parts, paint, and a small enough cushion so I'm not paying out myself in the event I have to pay a premium price for one part or another.

I should hear from them tomorrow, or Tuesday by the latest. This is frustrating. If it wasn't for the fact I was waiting on insurance I'd already have it torn down and prepared for new panels.

They should shot down the forum. Nothing but incompetents. Clearly they have not seen what 1st gen celica owners have restored. Is they total it buy it back repair and sell it, unless a salvaged title does not bother you...

I really don't see how they could total it, for one I have to agree to it which I won't. Secondly it'd be a lot cheaper to pay me off for parts than to give the retail value of the car. Either way I won't make it easy on them if they try to screw me over.

Apparently insurance is off on the weekends, so have to wait until Monday or Tuesday now...

Well, that's below the lowest percentage even. 50-75% of total value in damages before it's totaled. At this point I just don't even care anymore, the more I think about it the less I want to deal with it. I've only had the top down once and that was on the way home after buying it, then I started to burn and had to put the top up. I'm not a convertible person.

I don't know, just depends on insurance really. If they total it I'll buy it back and sell it to someone deserving, if they don't total it I'll keep it.

Then it's just back to the 240SX, Mustang, or Supra ordeal all over again.
