    Wrecked my WRX and looking for suggestions

    Unfortunately, I totaled my 2005 WRX a few months ago. I hit some ice and eventually wound up upside down. From what I can tell there there is mainly just a lot of body damage and the passenger side front wheel and suspension are going to need a lot of work. When it flipped it dented the front of the roof right above the windshield down about 3-6 inches and from everyone I talked to about it this was the reason why it was totaled. I finally have time to start trying to fix it, but I wanted to find out if it is a good idea to try and where I could possibly find another wrecked WRX with an intact roof. All suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    how's the frame and the rest of the structural body? depending on the damage it might just be easier and possibly cheaper to get another wrx, maybe get one with a blown motor for really cheap and swap in yours
