*good man* meant put your husband to work on it!
Yeah, I'm looking into options.

I had the insurance company make the check out jointly to me and Trade Secret (other option was me and the lien holder, but I'm leaving them out of this mess). I'm next on their waiting list so I'll be scheduling my appointment with them sometime today. I'll see what they're willing to do for me as far as aftermarket parts. My guess is the total will come out somewhere closer to $14,000 or so by the time this is all over with.

Allstate is probably going to hate me but my car is going to look badass.

Oh, and yeah my husband knows a thing or two about N54s....because I taught him I might be a chick but I do know how to build cars...
