Default Body Work help Needed

I need to replace the Hood and driver'* side front fender. The hood looks relatively simple. but the fender seems more difficult. On top of it i need to replace the drivers side head light assembly and the grill. How hard do yout hink it would be? It looks that all the stuff is held on buy screws. I'm trying to save money because I'm kinda limited on my budget. Also the wheel well is very rusted, due to the car sitting for about 7 months with out repair before I got it. Should i try to fix that too. I'd prefer to do as much of this myself as possible, because body work estimates, on labor alone are like 300 around here. Thx.

really its not that hard to do, if you cant afford the real fix, just gather some fiberglass slap it on and then put your bondo on top sand / dry and paint. if you need parts i do have a quantity of sources here in new brunswick

HAha, i need to do the same thing. I was in an accident a month ago. To replace the hood it looks like you're going to have to take off both fenders to get to the bolts. The fender isn't hard to take off, just alot of screws on it. I replaced the headlight assembly easy. Since my fender was cracked i just fiberglassed it back together and i am going to paint it soon. If you can get the parts at a good price, its just a few hours work to put them on. I am still looking for a new hood, they are pretty expensive. The grill is also easy to take off.
