Doh......a deer..a female deer

two nights ago i hit a deer. i ruined all of the blinker lights and the head lights. What is the deal with the sn-95 head lights? They are a pain in the ass to get out. i ended up breaking all of the mounts. What should i do rig something up?

also any one want a black hood that may be able to salvage?

I killed bambi, didn't mess mine up too bad. Only about 2200 worth of work. I did most of the body work myself and found a cheap reliable painting place and kept a grand.

Are the lights really that tought to take out? One of my side lights (drivers side) is out...

How's your paint now NoSlow5oh? Is it all peeling off?

I think if anything did that much damage to my car, I'd back up and finish it off.

It really didn't do that much damage work wise, just went to the ford dealerships and custom car shops to get estimates for the insurance agency. I did most of the body work myself including taking the lights out, the headlight mounting panel, and the front bumper, and then replacing all of it with new parts. The bumper was the hardest to get on, because it is made of urethane, and I had to bend the brackets just right for it to fit snug against the metal fender.

The lights weren't that bad once I figured out how to get them out. Just took about 5-6 hours total to do it all. The only body part I didn't do was bending the lip of the fender where it stops by the hood back up an inch because I've never done this stuff before and didn't want to try to mess anything up.

I went to a little painting shop I have been to before that does great work real cheap. I had them bend the fender lip back up, paint the fender, the bumper, and install the lights and grille emblem, and they charged me $150 bucks. Its been about a year now since the work was done. The paint matches perfect and shines like new. Like I said I have been to them before and I have never had a problem with the quality of work they do.
