Good luck with the repairs, looks like she held up pretty well. I wonder how bad the other car looked?

I picked one up that was similar.


I blocked the wheels of the car and my truck. Truck was backed up to car. Then using multiple straps etc and a come along, I slowly pulled the radiator support back out.

Tough to see, it'* back about 1-2 inches in places


A few hours of work later, and your car can look like this too.


Good luck and remember, pull...don't hammer. Go slow and it'll look great soon.
