Default possibly the worst day of my life :(

My heart is broken and iam banging my head into the wall for being so damn stupid

Hydroplaned doing 40MPH on a cold and rainy day, wearing Drag radials . Stupid me took the car out last night, then spend the night over my girlfriends house, woke up sunday and it was raining, i left anyway and this crap happened , I am so broken

I linked a video at the end of what happened, i had my dash cam on.

Sorry man, but at least you are ok, and no one else was involved. "Things" can be replaced, people can not. But I would be heartbroken too. Hopefully insurance will help you get it back to the way it was or a good replacement.

What were you thinking, in the wet with those tires?

Anyway, the car looks worse than it is...
You missed the frame rail and no front suspension damage so the car won't be totaled.
Hope you're OK..
Look on the bright side, time to get a better looking aftermarket hood.

I appreciate it, it looks fixable , problem is, its not fully covered. I am going to fix it little by little since i own a shop and its just gonna sit in the shop for a while, probably end up with an aftermarket hood

That sucks .....

I watched the video .... sure looks like a fast 40 mph to me .... sorry. Yeah, you feel bad now but when all is said and done, you'll see lots worse days than this.

Structural damage is minimal considering...
You'll need a radiator support and the front apron, not a biggy if you know how to weld.
While you're at it, since you need a bumper, get the GT/CS bumper kit for about $350.
Just a thought...

Video does that. Always appears faster on tape.
