already contacted co parts they in progress of processing it to be brought bk to my home address.as per phone call and via email confirmation from insurance and co parts.so hoping by Monday cozy b bk with me i then can sort her out depending on the funds available.both highway and co parts was bending over by the time i had finished with em today little pressure on my side really helped kicking the bum into gear lol.they even got the engineer to call to tell me wat was wrong and he says he is going to tell highway that it is repairable.so looking good atm.will put up pictures wat they sent me of the damage the theifs ad done so once bk with me i can at least tidy her up ready to b fixed once i have the funds.she looks so lonely in co parts yard wiil ad photos in a mo
insurance finally got bk to me made a offer to pay out market value and a salvage value.now for me to make a decision do i keep it for the salvage and get cozy repaired or take the market value and not see cozy again.or do i sell her on or strip her for parts to anyone who needs or do i sell to someone on ere for a fair price.
Its up to you but a lot depends on what the market value is and what they have valued the salvage at. From your description of the damage apart from the camper door which might be a bugger to replace its going to be mainly time to sort it all out.
Can you do some of the work yourself or have you got mates who could help you out with it? Chances are the wiring pulled out of the dash is just the back of the ignition dangling down - its an easy fix. However if you end up paying someone to do the work for you it could end up as a fair chunk of money - more in labour than parts I would think.
gone for salvage value as it works out i would end up with more in my pocket than i would for market value then me n mrs gonna make a decision on wat to do i have arrange for cozy to come home and for a great person to come see how much it will cost to fix her up.if to much then may have to sell her as spairs or repair or strip her dwn to sell as parts myself.but in reality i would rather keep her but wiil see later once i knw wat the best option is.hoping to keep her.ohhhhh and it will be classed as a cat c
got some pics but cant post as they are to big the damage to the camper door isn't to bad thats a easy fix i would think.the rest is the steering bust and wiring under the steering where they ripped out to try n start her.and yea ralph did say he could get hold of the parts but cant get pics on to show but ralph as said once cozy home he will call up to see how much it would be to fix.
