Don't look to bad, a trip to the salvage yard should be all you need. Check for some part out cars. A hood will be your biggest problem. A grill, headlights, and you should be good.

I feel your pain, I had the same thing happen about a month ago. I was not so lucky though. Mine was a total. You should be able to get her back on the road from the looks of it. Good luck with the repairs.

OW. too bad it messed up the radiator support. you might be able to save it with some carefully placed hammer blows, make sure the airbag fuse is out during surgery though.

personally I'd venture to say you need a new core support as well, a fairly inexpensive part, I think I paid only about $100ish for mine brand new. but the welding it in may be the tricky part.

best of luck getting it back on the road!
