Eh, fuses are over rated!

That's one hot setup!

It's a shame they only got to enjoy that for a "short" time.

Truly awful,, their lack of installing fuses is revolting, I was shocked. They obviously don't have the capacity for positive work a really negative attitude and you should relay our thoughts. Sorry CK I feel I had to try and out do KP.

Punning aside, that's a write off to me unless brand new and the claims assessor is your dad. Wiring looms unless you can repair, roof lining, dashboard, head unit, heater piping, windscreen,  the head unit looks scorched, then there's the smell, then if they used a dry powdeer fire ext. that will take a week to clear out. You've a week's work there.

yes, it truly is a "heated" situation fellas. i'm not entirely sure this was the work of another shop, it could be one of those DIY jobs that someone did at home. ive never spoken to the actual owners, only an insurance agent. it will most likely be a total though.

it looks like every thing forward of the door piller will have to be stripped down to sheet metal and replaced, its totaled unless you can get a cut front end from the junk yard for cheap
time is not wasted when you are wasted all the time
