Not exactly a write off at that point.
Ah, I was presuming that the roof meant structural damage which meant it was a write off.

Already for a new screen on the insurance cover, and I'm going to find a bonnet from the scrap yard hopefully.

I have a friend who wants to buy it, but don't want to sell him a car which can't be insured.
