    Default Re: Help with body repairs

    I was wondering when you were gonna chime in on here. Lol

    The metal in front of the airbox is pushed in but it should be alright.

    The headlight bracket compared to the other side is getting closer but it's still pushed back but I don't think it will matter too much

    The front bolt hole for the fender sits lower than it should but like you said I can deal with that once I actually have it

    Is there a way to separate the hood hinge from the fender? Or do I need to buy a new hood hinge too

    As far as the JY is concerned, hinge is part of fender. You can possibly twist the hinge back and forth a few times to pop the weld loose. For sure you could drill the weld out. When I need to swap just a fender, I prop up that side of the hood and unbolt it from the hinge so the hinge can stay on the fender. A padded block of some sort is placed under the back corner of the hood. I did that on my GT then tackled making the hood work. It was hurt a lot worse than yours but I put a wood block on the upper core support and stood on the buckled side of the hood until it closed securely and cleared. No fvcks given about the big dents, it looks like a car again to most people. The upper unibody side rail was mashed in from the side enough that I just left the front bolt out of the top row on the fender. You may have to do a little bodyman-ing or get creative to mount your headlight but yep it's the slots where the plastic tabs go that will be the main thing on that.

    Well guys I'm out of school and it's time to get back at it again.

    Got new headlights in and I'm going to put them on today and make sure the metal is the right shape again.

    I would post pictures but Photobucket fcked everything up so I'm going to have to find a new site

    Flickr and imgur are pretty good. I've been using imgur for a while now and no issues. Just make sure you upload them to private not public otherwise trolls will troll your pictures.
