Rad support is a little larger and most repairs shouldn't include a come along.

Pictures would probably be good. You could list it in the for sale area, you could part it yourself or you could look into fixing and keep it.

First off, where are you located?

Second, you could have the body shop just pull the radiator support out for you and do the rest yourself. I know in my area you could get hood, headlights, and corner lenses for under $300.

As stated, pictures would help us tell you whether or not to give it a go.

This car looks very "fixable" to me. As was stated before, use a come along attached to the cross-member, the other end to a tree, and just ratchet it out slowly. Then it looks like a new hood, headlights, grill, and corners. You were right about the bumper being barely harmed. If it were me, I'd fix it! You certainly have a wealth of knowledge here, at the least!

Good luck!
