Default Well, I got them back on...

My destroyed then fixed then destroyed and then fixed once again foglights are back on. I had to heat the brackets up and pound them back into shape at school. Then repainted, then bought new lenses...etc..etc..

They aren't perfect but not too shabby either. If I am going to pay to get this car fixed up, I want it to be damn near perfect. I will be discussing a concern I have shortly...maybe you can spot what it is in the first 2 pics. Enjoy.





And a random shot, since 88-91 SSE owns 92-99 .

Rock on, fellow 88-91 SSE.


yeah, looks like you're talking about the paint. At least it looks like you've got a solid base to work with, while my paint is still nice 'n' shiny (non original), the rust is basically beyond repair. It wouldn't be cost effective to fix, yet everything'* still intact. Slow, painful death.

Nope, they aren't on and I've never seen them come on. Go figure.

@ TrueWildMan: I went into a ditch last May. They got smashed and mangled.

@ repinS: I am concerned about the peeling, and I am confident I have a good base. I will pay to have the rust repaired. All the rust I have is surface rust (nothing goes through). I am also concerned about another thing. When I went into that ditch, it would appear the hood took some damage as well.

In the first to pictures, look at the space between each side of the hood and each fender. It also doesn't quite sit right or latch quite right. The side with the huge gap bounces up and down, and I can pull it up quite far by hand, while the other side doesn't budge. I don't know if this is purely a problem with the hood, or if something else got screwed as well. When it stop snowing I will take more pictures and describe it in more detail.
