That sure is unlucky but...
Look at it like an opportunity?

It was going to get damaged eventually out on the Trail so repair it like you would a 1.1.
Bit of Primer here an there could add to the overall character of the Rig.

oh man, so much destruction, I feel your pain! I hope to never see matching damage on the 1:1, like some sort of voodoo thing! You have the skills and technology to rebuild so dont mope too long because I really do like to keep tabs on this build! The second time around always goes quicker anyway....good luck!

This body should not have ever gotten this badly hurt. That's why I bought another Disco body... to beat on.

If the lights were metal and I did not use body filler, this thing would be in great shape after a fall like this.

Well, I started tearing it down. I removed the roof rack and what was left of the lights. Then I popped out the windows that were already half off. I even started on a bit of bondo. There are some pretty serious stress cracks in teh paint that I will just have to live with.

Man, this thing is really starting to look like my 1:1 now.

That's a BUMMER! But hey, it would've gotten damaged at some point anyway, even though this was to be your "take it easy" body. Hell, I have to fix cracks on my truck every time I run it.

Hate when stuff like that happens...and you weren't even on the trail!

I'd agree with the others that you could make it appear as scale trail damage. fix the easy stuff like grilles and such. Get the window gasket back on. fill the cracked filler back and hit it with a bit of primer. Think about how you would fix your 1:1 after a roll on the trail and fix the 1:10 accordingly. Regarding the damage, if not now, probably later on a trail. Would have had a better story but what can you do, lol.

This sucks!!!

But I imagine driving on the road and go through a offroader like this with that damage and see it pass by with dignity and pride in spite of the damage.

I am sure you will be able to make it even better than before!

Ouch ouch and thrice ouch. Now if that happened on a trail it wouldn't feel so bad, but in the kitchen!!!

Well if you built it once, you do have the power to rebuild it, but what a bummer, I'm gutted on your behalf...

OH man my favorite Landy build broken? Damage sucks especially when it was a stupid glitch or something stupid. Not calling you stupid but you know what i mean. I hate putting so much time and effort into something just to see it in pieces. Just think of what it would have looked like had you had no roof rack? Hope to see it all well and running soon. This really is my fav landy of ALL that ive seen! Good luck.

Thanks everyone for the support. This damage would not have hurt so bad if it was done out on the trail... just not like this.

I may just fix the bad area of bondo and primer it and leave it that way. Make it look like an unfinished repair... We'll see.
