Back in 2010 I bought this 2009 VOI-X from an insurance auction: It was a very light hit, no frame work needed, inner fenders intact, etc. Learned A LOT about Vipers (and insurance estimates ) rebuilding that car. Also learned a lot about how hard it is to match silver paint. Took about 4 trips to the spray both to get that car right. Anyway, ended up looking like this: Drove it for a bit, got bored and sold it. New owner put less than 2 (not 2000, not 200...just 2) miles on it before wrapping it around a pole. Le sigh. A C6 Z06 and C6 ZR1 followed but I always missed that car. Fast forward to this spring. Got the Viper itch again and I've always wanted a white ACR. Lo and behold this one popped up at auction: Car definitely took a shot, but it's a 2010, ACR, white and most importantly a clear title so I figured it was worth a gamble. Got it home and it was roughly what I expected... I guessed (and was correct) that buying every single part individually wouldn't work, so I stuck it out until a could find a donor car. Ended up getting this 2008 with 7k miles. That's worked out well and it means I won't have to attempt to repair anything. EVERYTHING forward of the firewall that's not ACR specific will be replaced with the parts from the donor. That will leave me with a low miles GenIV driveline and a TON of other parts to sell to help recoup some of my costs. First step, teardown: Second step, off to the chassis shop: Next it goes onto the the frame machine to be pulled back to factory specs. Then the donor car will be dismantled and we'll cut the frame about halfway down the tramission tunnel. Ditto for the ACR, sleeve it and weld the new frame in and then back onto the frame machine to ensure the measurements are factory spec. FYI...I was concerned about the straightness of the KW's on the ACR so yesterday I sent them to the factory in California for rebuild. I think that $200 each is very fair considering the replacement cost. Big thanks to Mark @ Woodhouse, Jon @ Parts Rack and Dan @ Viper Specialty...couldn't do it without you guys! I'll post updates to this thread as work proceeds for those that are interested.
