Had to make a claim on my insurance. The adjuster is coming to see it today or Monday. I totaled up the parts, and if I go all NOS or original "used" metal, we are looking in the $2800.00 range just for the parts. Everything in the front but the fenders and the headlight bucket on the drivers side is toast.
I have pictures, they don't show the damage as well as I'd like, but I don't really have a way to post them anyhow.

Good News is that a fellow VMFer (and new friend) Cruzer has agreed to do the bodywork for me. I'm going to throw in some of my own savings and finally finish the car. Not the way I had planned it, but that is life I guess. He will not be available until August since he is fixing up a beautiful coupe for his son, who is off defending our freedom in the mideast. I can't think of a better way to honor his son than that, can you? So, worth the wait, and I can sit in it and dream until then, kinda like when I first got the car, except with seats.

Do a search for Cruzer sometime, check out his website, and his cars. He is a hell of a guy, and I am truely blessed he has agreed to help out. I'm really going to owe him big.

Be careful out there! If you want pics, email me, since I am a little poor at the picture posting thing.

Good stuff....Mustang mechanics are few and far between.

I had a front end accident with my 66 Mustang and had to rebuild the entire front end (metal parts). I went with the cheap parts and now I have huge gaps in the fender seams. I may put some new fenders on when I repaint the car in a few years.

Greg.
