Hi my names Cassie, I've been a member for a few years. My man bought me my first eclipse GS. Didn't even know how to drive a manual transmission, I didn't like the color, I didn't like how small it was, I didn't like the fact I didn't know how to drive the fucking thing. But she grew on me. I fell in love with that car. I was the only one in my town with that kind of car. She shined when we drove through. Anyways I bought newer tires still on the rims from a friend. and had them riding around with me for about a month. I had to get them taking off the rims and put on my rims, and put my old ones back onto them so I wouldnt be leaving my friends ride on blocks. F.y.i, I live in a rural area my gas station closes at 6 and has to change the tires by hand because their machine only took up to 16s and he has to ring up customers as well. Anyways my man goes to get the tires on only gets 2 put on because it took so long, he gets them put on the back. It was fine I thought, idk maybe a month later leaving my mom's going around a corner I fish tailed and didn't make it. I hit the gaurd rail and smashed up the passenger side. Airbag went off. Didn't get hurt. Was able to drive her home it home. Anyways I'm hoping to fix her. I'm gona post some pics maybe someone can give me some tips. I'm the second owner. Please give me some advice. How much would it cost to out it in the shop. I started taking the front off. The radiator, and its frame the hood gona have to be replaced. I just got the timing belt replaced to. I'm wondering what tools im gona need to fix the frame if I'm gona don't myself. I'll get some more pics as soon as I get a new phone, I literally can't take pictures with this one. I've got alot done since these pictures were taken. I got it open up where I can see everything, I need to start to straighten it I was going to pull on what I can, and cut of that damaged part, then go cut off a good part from another Mitsubishi eclipse from the junk yard then get it welded on. Any tips???

Doesn’t look too bad
This is the better side to damage as all of the electronics and wiring run on the other side pretty much

A light and bumper at the minimum

Maybe some light sub frame pulling

Definitely worth fixing though, mine was worse than this on the other side and it got put back together

Really that's a relief to hear. I got the money now, I think I'm taking her to the shop. I'm the second owner. I think it's worth it. Do u think it will be cheaper for me to buy the parts and take it to the shop. Will it save me money?
