Hailstorm wreckage

So Friday night I'm coming back from getting some upper and lower intakes for real cheap and I'm happy as hell. that changes........To make it short I'm driving on a nice smooth road when all of a sudden the pouring rain turns to hail. It was hitting so hard, I thought my windows were going to crack.

So instead of pullling off the road like my gut told me to, I kept going since I was 1/10 of a mile from my house. I hit a patch of ice and my car goes into a skid. My car goes sideways taking up both lanes of the road and slides for a good 40 feet or so. My brakes don't do anything since i'm on a layer of ice. I had absolutely no control. My front end hits a short concrete retaining wall and a fence that's on top of it. Somehow we bounce and then the back end hits the fence and we do a 360 and get flung back to the other side of the road nearly missing some trees and telephone poles.
My girlfriend got the worse of the impact. My seatbelt didn't hold me in, the airbags didn't go off, and the engine stayed on. My knees hit the dash pretty hard so that means I kinda got lifted out of my seat.

Anyways my gf spent a few hours in the emergency room getting checked out. Nothing broken but we both got severe whiplash.
So my turbo build up is on hold for a while and now I'm trying to see if I can fix the car myself.

The radiator got shoved in pretty bad so i'm hoping maybe i can cut out the support and weld in a new one and take a big hammer to the corner panel.
I just really hope my rear axle isn't bent. Hard to tell since my tire in the rear popped so it drove funny anyways.

Re: Hailstorm wreckage

eh I'd rather have broken something then have my car broken....
Would a write up on how to remove the front quarter panel be of interest to anybody? I took it off yesterday but when I go to install it I can take pics.
