Was thinking about getting it to repair it, instead of signing on a $30k+ vehicle.

2006 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class 350 - $10,000



Airbags are good and it runs and drives as is. Looks like a simple bolt on fix with no frame straightening required. I'd check it out in person and confirm it all before paying anything, and see if the title is clear or if the insurance agent actually had it marked salvage.

I know it sounds like a great buy and I'm almost less than an hour away from it. About how much you think I would spend repairing it?

Shit man, I have no idea. Can you get Chinese crash parts for a Benz or do you have to get everything from the dealer? I hate to think what that header panel alone would cost from a dealer!

Unibody "frame rail" buckled near firewall.

That car will need a session with the Chief EZ liner.

You think so? I can't tell if the hood is pushed back on the pillar or not but it does look like the fender hit the door.

Usually when deals like this are an easy fix there is a line up of guys who do this for extra cash. I am no body man by any means but what I have found is take the amount of time you are planning on spending prepping for paint then multiply it by 4.

It means that if you try to unbolt anything that is bent or crushed, you will run out of bolts before you run out of bent car.
