    Should I sell or fix

    I have a 2010 gu 6 diesel. Over yr ago going up hill in a 60 zone Uber pulled out flipped it on the side . TheARB bull bate cage competed a nice dent.
    At the time I was changing Insuranace as my son just got green P licence and wanted to change to club 4x4 as soon as his new p came through so let insurance lapse.

    This is the tricky issue I have major smash repair are I auto based and charge a fortune although I have found 2 small independent repairers.

    Pror to accident it had 177k on clock but had just spent 4 k on new turbo and 1 k on general maintenance under bonnet . I also bought 4 brand new BFGoodrich T/A KO2 at same time as new turbo.

    Am I better trying to rebuild or sell it off part bye part
    Would only ever buy a patrol again . Just wondering what is best practical solution invest in repair which has oblivious high cost or sell parts take the cash get same ur patrol or a newer model.
    Cheers Gareth

    I loved my patrol wether fixed or stripped to go towards a newer model I will pick a patrol over any other car . Due to COVID trying to fiancÚ repair is tough but have never sold a car part by part which gets better money . If anybody knows any independent body repaires in Brisbane Gold Coast Sunshine Coast region let me know

    If you love it, fix it.

    It's not up to everyone else to decide if it's worth it or not. That is up to you.

    Pics of the damage would help. Is the chassis bent?

    If its just a bull bar then swap out for another. Plenty around second hand.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    I guarantee it will cost more than you can imagine to repair, whatever you think, times it by about 3, (without labour), its a 100% crap position to be in, and ive been in it myself, once you start, you can not go back, no matter how deep and dark it gets, your there in that hole till the end, my advise is to save yourself the stress and heartache , along with financial hardship, just cut your losses and move on best you can.
