As Des said, as long as there isnt anything serious bent, then to be fair thats all panels.

New front panel, new wings, new bonnet, and bumper lights etc

And as Phill said, if you can weld then youve done half the job already :P

I had a shunt in my car, basically I was given too options, let them get everything sorta straight and roadworty, so it would pass an MOT, however bonnet is slightly askew to one side, as is the bumper. You can only notice it if you look closely to see it isnt straight, and that cost me £150 all in. Other option was too pay about £600 to get everything to sit fully flush and straight. If I was you, Id go for cheaper option, and then save up the rest of the money and get everything to line up nice and staight mate. Even tho I really want your engine :lol:

i think this is what i will do..
as im in a tight financial position i have the choice of £150-200 to get it roadworthy.
or £500-1000 (which i'd have to take some sort of overdraft/loan for) to get a car i wont be happy with....
mathmatically it seems sense for an all round cheaper way of doing things, and keeping my pride and battered joy

You need to look at all your options properly first dude before you make any decisions ;)

You might be surprised. See what a bodyshop say before you commit to anything! :)
