    I will not be buffing out -opinions?

    A large free came down while I was working on my TR6 in the driveway. The on!y thing that was lucky is me going in the house for a break when it happened. It came across the car at a 45 degree angle. The bonnet was off at the time. There is damage to the window frame, firewall area, right inner and outer fenders, and the right door. Not sure if the total damage yet.I do have a used front outside fender. My question is is it even worth restoring? Thoughts?

    That is really too bad, hard to say without seeing it? Insurance?? Assume you have it, what do they want you to do, did you have an agreed value?

    Most of that is is bolt on parts, so if you have access to the parts and the rest of the car was good, fix for sure.

    Make the decision that works for you, good luck.

    A Good reason to have insurance even during the restore stage.

    Glad you were taking a break.

    I lost a corvette and a Jag, all at once, to a Eucalyptus tree. Long story on the insurance, which I will no bore you with.
    If the car runs good, etc., buy a door and a fender. Good luck. Pictures would help.
