So the insurance company are giving me the agreed value for the car and letting me keep the salvage for free..... yes free, they say because of the age its not worth anything to them.... pretty much made up my mind to get another car too....

Cheers Jon.

Will see what they come back with when they get in contact with me. Not really sure what to do.. Fix it or take the money spend a bit more and get a 996

The car is a total loss. I'm just waiting for the insurance settlement team to get back to me. I recon it would cost £2000 all in to repair it me doing the mechanical fixes and getting the body work done elsewhere.

What do you think I could buy it back from the insurance company from?
What would it be worth after. There is a cat c FD on autotrader currently for 8k. That's more than mine is insured for.

That's something to consider i'm hoping it will get fixed. I work at a glacial pace on my car what with the age of my kids.

Will let you know what happens.

Jon

I think it was a short around the battery.

The fire was from the battery up with the fans melted. Looking at what i can see it would need a new front wiring harness, bonnet,rad & fans, and various other bits its still holding water and all the belts are ok. I got to it within 10 mins of it starting my neighbour called me and kept the hose on it until the fire brigade came.

I will see what the insurance company say if they will repair it that would be the best outcome. I would be very tempted to keep it if I get the chance and depending on how much it would cost to buy back and the cost of the parts above. Any ideas on the cost of a front harness

I had spent the evenings of the last month cleaning up the underneath and treating the it to  a couple of coats of por15 I refurbished the wheels etc.. Hence am gutted

Yes, the car made it home flawlessly. I'm well pleased. :)

Everything was rock solid, temperatures all good etc, the car pulls really well, handles great, its all good.

I would really like to thank Jon for all his work on my car along with his friend who welded the wing on, haywards for mapping & identifying & fixing the mystery exhaust leak and Chris the perfectionist, who repaired and resprayed the bodywork. I looks like it just came out of the showroom all straight no ripples or anything really impressive work.

I need to take some photo's for the agreed valuation on my insurance. Which I will post. I put £7000 as the agreed valuation any comments as what the value should be as its a UK Fd ?

Got to be the engine. The rest of it looks in pretty good order. At a guess £2000 - £2500 ish. I doubt they would get that much if they decided to break it.
