That is so true but here is some good news, the core support is fine but I did have some trouble lining up the hood due to a bent hood hinge but the junk yard allowed me to due a clean trade I give them my old one and they give me the one off the other vehicle. Also I need to replace the lift supports for the hood because they are not lining up right because they are slightly bent but I have rigged them up for now so they will hold up the hood. The bumper dealt me a little bit of fitment issues but I was able to rework a few things and got the bumper to line up. Also the friend of mine was able to get the old bleeder screws out and put new ones in along with replacing the front brakes and wow the brakes are a lot better then what they have been.

I had to do a little more tweaking on a few things today to get the alignment a little bit better so things wouldn't rub on one another but that was all that was need to be done. Now I just need to get the lift support replaced on the driver side and all will be good.
