A Gift From Whitehorse,YT

Gifted to us by a young arrogant speeding driver. Now I am looking for a frontend. Can someone point me to a salvage yard that may have a frontend or a shop in the western U.S. that can perform major fiberglass work?

Sorry to see your misfortune. I would try a local auto body shop and see if they can make a recommendation for you. Second I would contact the insurance company and see what they have to offer.
The only positive side to this is that we're at the end of the season and not the beginning.
Keep us posted

Sorry to see the damage. I hope you have all the pieces. If you do repairing it should not be too bad. A couple of layers of glass and resin on the inside where it won't show and some filler and paint on the outside. If you don't find an auto body shop try a boat shop.

I just saw a front piece for sale somewhere on the internet, I will see if I can find it again.

Hasler's Autobody does good work. Darryl's guys have put my Coach back to like new when body damage has occurred. Not sure whether the address is 3956 Jackson Hwy, Chehalis, WA 98532; (360) 262-3105. He is about 3 miles off of I-5. Rural area so access is really easy.

So Sorry

What a shame, and such a beautiful coach. Did the kid get ticketed?

So sorry to see this and hope it's only fiberglass damage. If you take it home, Markel's Auto Body in south Anchorage is without peer for repairs to vehicles.

Jeff, thanks for the lead. It is always good to have a referral.

Don't think so. The Police say they do not determine fault. Makes you wonder if someone on a motorcycle gets run over by a speeder if they determine fault then.

Do a Google search also, (salvage Apline) I saw a couple of other ones while I was looking for some other things.

The front cap frame is damaged. The impact was a side-swipe hitting the front corner. The generator slide seems a little out of alinement. A nylon guide and some shims fell out, but I think the slide frame is OK. When I get the coach to a shop, will let them make a determination.

This is the fourth time this summer an on-coming driver turn left in front of me while I was making a right turn. Only this time I was so far into the turn I couldn't see him coming. Speed and impatience, some drivers will never learn.
