Rhino vs. hydrolic jaws of life

Hello,
I purchased what I was told was a 2005 SE Rhino 660 a while back. It needed a lot of maintenance work. I installed new ball joints, tie rods, and wheel bearings and swing arm bushings. Once I had it all done my kids went for a ride and rolled it onto it's side. My daughters arm was pinned under the roll cage. Broken radius requiring surgery and a steel plate and screws. Four days in the hospital. The fire department and ambulance were called to the scene and to extricate my daughter cut the roll cage off with the jaws of life. The left bed side was smashed too. My kids are both fine and my daughter is recovering well. I've purchased all the parts to restore the Rhino but haven't done it yet. I purchased a roll cage on eBay from Pennsylvania. EBay Global Shipping worked great if anyone is considering using it. Anyway here are some pics of the current state. Funny thing, as I was shopping around looking for a roll cage I discovered my Rhino is a 2007.
Sorry the pics are sideways. Don't know how to rotate them.

I couldn't get the left bed cover in limited edition paint. My plan was to strip the paint off all parts and purchase a standard red bed side. Stripping the paint is wicked hard. I purchased the strongest stripper I could find from NAPA. Proven to cause California in the state of cancer (LOL). I't barely puts a dent in it. So far all I've done is manage to make a huge mess.

Glad to hear your daughter is doing ok, if you can use fine sandpaper to smooth out the rough spots then rattle can paint it Lowe's has some that works great about $12 a can.

Glad everyone is okay - think there is a lesson to be learned here. That said, first time I've seen a picture of a Rhino less body plastics, it actually looks kind of cool!
