    Well tough day for ole yeller, he fought his way through the snow up to Seattle and back and then right before canyon, one patch of black ice and it's a tailspin into the guardrail[emoji24]. I would like to think I saved him as best I could, but I've never 'drifted' (lol) before and honestly just tapped the brakes and tried to steer the front sway from the railing. Well hopefully he's not totaled but the quarter panel and passenger door are junk now, first pick was after he made it to the jobsite in Seattle.

    Ah man, I'm sorry to hear that. How about the body? Have you been able to check and see if it's still straight?

    Either way, glad you're unharmed. It's theoretically easier to fix a car than to fix a human, after all.

    Thanks man, the body seems straight, I didn't notice any abnormalities on the way home after that. Left turns felt a little weird but I'm hoping it's just an alignment issue. Doors will be easy, the rear quarter panel is what scares me. I'm sending it to a shop through the ins. hopefully they don't total the poor fella

    Finally got the insurance on board so now I'm hunting for a new p5 while I beat the piss outta yeller with a sledge and whatever else works. I got started on the main squish spot and managed to work that out a bit, it's not gunna be pretty but as long as it doesn't look like I just smashed it I'll be happy. Also took off the bumper and found a surprising amount of rust on the....... uh........ actual bumper...uh.....the metal piece..? Idk what it is honestly haha, pics coming soon

    Made some more progress, I won't be able to get much closer to the wheel well area because it's kinda tight in there, but the worst of it is pulled.... kinda
