Default Re-kitting an ARF?

Back in the day some 25+ years ago when we crashed, it was know as "Re-kitting". In the spirit of the ARF's of today when we crash an ARF have we in essence "Re-ARF'd" it?????

You can tell an old pilot from a new by mentioning a plane snapping, or re-kitting.

When you bARF a ARF, just get a styrofoam ice chest and glue the wings on it, dump the flight pack inside, put the lid on it and go fly.

I'm sorry, me bad!!!

We call it up here "Rebuilt ARF, or Bashed." Anything else would kind of sound like it was stated out of disrespect.
