Yup thats right after driving my car around for the past 2 1/2 years with no real front end I've decided to fix it past just barely legal. I have the new core support, right fender, and left fender already being delivered. Now I'm just looking around for the small parts for the front bumper and then I'll have the front bumper its support and those small pieces I want delivered.

I have pics just need time to get them uploaded I'll do it tonight.

if you have suggestions on the best way to remove the radiator core support throw them up. I'm thinking of using a hole saw and just start doing it up till I think I got them all. I also plan on just using a sawzall and cutting out from the frame inward to make it easier to handle.

only thing I'm not getting right now are the hood and the grill piece

I also plan on starting to fix the 2 mexi deep dent.

back story. up in dayton for a job working with a bunch of mexicans cool guys overall except 2 of them. well after a long days work we went out got some food then went back to the hotel and was playing some soccer. they decide to kick the ball near the car then run over to it and continue to play getting rough then one shoves the other into my car. I was like wtf? I about beat the shit out of the both of them. hit the passenger side rear qtr right below the glass along the crease onlong the inner brace so you cant just pop it out

I've asked about these special drill bits at home depot and no luck and since I really don't know the name I just told them what they were for and they weren't too sure

I swear if that delivery guy lies and says no one was here when he tried to deliver I'm gonna rip him a new one I've been here all day and he still hasn't come

so I got the passenger side welded it looks ok the driver side is being difficult something is off though not by much it is bothering me. I should weld it up tomorrow if all goes well. the fenders aren't fitting quite right either but I think its the fenders and not the car

I'm a lazy bastard. I have the core support welded up looking good the fenders are on and now I have to fix the trunk area. the battery weight caused the spare tire well to shake. it eventually caused it to crack so now I'm thinking of welding in a new well.
