It was a very fast front 180 degree motion. I had my seat belt on, But that didn't stop me hitting the roof and injuring my spine in the process.

I will recover in few months so thanks god, nothing serious.

The truck generally is in a good shape apart from the crushed roof. I'm debating between gr8top half top and Wildboar Fast Back hardtop.

Glad to hear you are OK, cars can be rebuilt. Us on hand are a little more difficult.

The Wildboar looks great, and I've honestly never seen one on the road. This is the way I'd go, since I'm sure insurance will give you a nice lump toward it.

Insurance are not covering any of it. Don't ask, It is complicated..

The guys at the Photoshop thread did this for me:





I'm still depating between the two as none of them is available around here.

I might start a new build thread in the comming week.

Typical , I have heard a lot of insurance companies over here will gladly take your money. Then say off road is not covered??? 3/4 of the GCC is unpaved. Also if you are doing a club event they will not cover you... That sucks the bigone big time.

Hopefully you are on the mend and getting better.

I need to build my home workshop first. It might take some time before I start.

I'm getting better. I'm slowly moving forward. Hopefully, I will make 90% recovery before the end of the year.

I'm starting a new thread for the LJ. I'm hoping to complete it before the start of the next season!
