Default Ever wonder what a Karma looked like naked?

Finished stripping down this wrecked car last month. Not my first strip-down, but the first I thought to take pictures of.

The windshield and rear glass were left in. The solar panel was literally cut off the car in the interest of speed. Everything else was taken off 'correctly', to be re-used.

The interior is still intact, so if any of you Standard owners wanted to 'upgrade' to the interior of an Ecosport, let me know. Perhaps you only want to upgrade the sound system? That's all available as well. If you're looking for something specific, let me know, as a number of the parts have been sold off or are pending.

All the damage was to the front right (You can see the cross-member bent in, almost touching the frame). The suspension in that corner was destroyed. The fender and front bumper were junk. Grills were destroyed along with anything else in that corner. The damage stopped where the 12V Battery sits, though even that was a bit crunched so I've already turned that in for recycling. Surprisingly though, the car still turned on and moved under its own power. Sure, it dragged that front right rim/tire around on its side, but I was still able to use the motors to put the car onto the lift the first time.

Now for pictures!

Gave it away. I don't have the capability to transport it to a recycle facility, and the lift it was on was needed.

Lormax,

You actually have the elusive speakers. Could you please PM the speaker sizes if that is not too much trouble.

Thanks

Sure thing. Which did you want? Door speakers or the speakers on the rear shelf?

The sizes of the door speakers, the center channel speaker in windshield, and the speakers sizes on rear deck to include subwoofer. If I could get the sizes I would greatly appreciate it.

Also, thanks for the floormats, they look great.
