2008 Ford Edge Limited rebuild

I picked up a 2008 Ford Edge Limited wreck with extensive front end damage. It has 65,000kms on it, fully loaded minus nav. Here are some before and after pictures of it.







Here you can see how far over the frame rails were.



2010 Front end donor vehicle




and new K-Frame, also from that 2010



Frame straightening







And the finished product, I also painted all the black plastic pieces that go along the bottom of the bumpers/rockers/bottom of doors.







One of my favorite features is the panoramic roof.

Thanks. I have a total of $10,000 into it. It's worth $24,000, so I did really well on it. I sold my old truck for $4,000, so technically it only cost me $6,000.

Yup, air bags and new module. There's no way you would ever know it was wrecked.

thats if it's branded..
sometimes the ownership stays clean.

I don't know how or why or when that doesn't happen. IT should always IMO.
but i have seen vehicles requiring alot of work like this Edge and not be branded.

Wow, nice work.

If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.
