DIGG THIS

2005 Nissan Altima 2.5S

The parts were hard to find. Only the fenders were available after market, the rest; headlights, bumper and air box I had to get from the dealer.

I picked this car up for $4000 from Copart.com. As you can see it is quiet a project. The picture above shows the front left wheel inside the fender well. When I got the car, the wheel was ripped out. They straightened the wheel out to get bidders to pay more for the car at the auction. Bad for me. :(

The rear left wheel suspension is bent as you can see. Had to replace some of the suspension parts.

The complete right suspension was replaced, the fender, headlight, front bumper. The hood was fixed.

Oh man, the story about the airbags. I've got to say, whoever designed this airbag system is not very bright. The passenger side airbag, when deployed rips through the dash. And you have to replace the whole dash when replacing the airbags. Have you ever heard of a such a thing. You would think they would be thinking ahead about the possibility of the car being in a repairable condition after an accident. So you don't have to replace half the car. That really made me unhappy. :(
If you are interested you can read the complete story i wrote on my blog at auto-parts-news.blogspot.com
