Well unfortunately yesturday morning whilst on my way to a job interview a damn civic slammed on at the 1 second i was skipping tracks on my CD player and unfotunately i didnt stop in time and heres the damage:
Now i originally bought this car as a project and intended on doing so much with it and this is kind of a big set back. Now the garage wants to charge me 700 to rebuild my front end. I really don't want to pay that and i have basic knowledge on body work so i intend on giving the rebuild a go myself but i was really hoping you guys could help me out with some things now and along the way.
I think i can handle the basic stuff like the headlights, bonnet, bumper but when it comes to the others i need a little advice.
Is this just a simple case of out with the old and in with the new or is this going to require welding?
Again Is this a simple case of unbolt old and rebolt new back on or is there more to it than that?
Is this a simple job to replace? and could you gve me some advice on bleeding and reffiling.
Air Con Unit.
Is this an essential part to the cars operation or can i do without this? I never use my air con but i was wondering if it's needed for the operation of the rad.
BTW the astra is a 1.6 LS, X Reg 2000.
Seriously any help you could give me on this i would really appreciate it.
