My wife rearended another car and I managed to get all the parts from a junk yard to fix it. I got the Euro headlights on my 85 900S now they are much better (not DOT approved, but I can refer who sells them). Hella makes them and the best of all is that all you have to change is the H-4 bulb when it buns no the whole sealed beam. I got the grill from a junk yard for $50.00, where the radiator and the hood mounts (crossmember that the hood is attached to) for $90.00, the hood I bent back myself ( I put my old combat boots and jumped on it untill it got back or close to shape, It might seen that the hood is beyond repair but you'll be surprised of what you can do (that saved me $200.00 on a used one). I had my whole fron end appart, no bumper, hood, lights, etc. all you could see was radiator and engine. Hopefully your main frame is no so bad. The suspension should be checked or try to get the front end aligned to see if it comes close after you fix it. Now the price that the repair shop quoted me was $2,270.00 and I think I spent about $600.00 because of the Euro Headlights (big upgrade). Send me a line if you have more questions. Good luck and don't let this one die, I still hear its heart beating. Johnny Herrera johnnyh1nopsamail.com
