Prelims on the Car

Since I am the ultimate fixer upper, I had the car towed to the house. With the help of my sons, I was able to totaly disassemble the entire front end and remove what was left of the hood.

Structural damage- Frame does not seem to be bent. The radiator support, front beam is bent in about 3 inches. That can be bent back out.

What will have to be replaced, Hood, front bumper, grill, headlights, Headlight housings, Front Windshield, Air Bags, Air Bag senser, and a few other items.

The Front body kit made it out OK! Just needs some repainting since the paint cracked. I have made a decision on a hood though. Here's the hood I want

Re: Prelims on the Car

good luck, doesn't sound like too much work. I would throw it on the frame rack just to be safe though, $100/hr is worth the peace of mind IMO.
