    The thing that holds the radiater (cant remember whats its Called) sits to low and that causes the bumper not to fit properly so imma get the fixed and the rear bumper fits perfectly

    Does it have a reconstructed title? Hope the frame is straight, and it's just the rad support that's bent. Bent frames are no bueno.
    Keep up the good work!

    I am in the same issue with my front end, it has some damage and needs a new radiator support, I am sure the car was hit in the front not too bad but bad enough so that my front end don't look normal to me. The bumpers look good though man, it's really coming together nicely.

    And women wonder why we take better care of our cars than we do the house or them. lol. Well, some do. My wife knows that i trust my own two hands over a piece of paper hanging on a wall. But dealer mechanics are pretty reliable in two areas, raising the price of the work and the quality.

    I agree with Dennis, it's coming together nicely. Hopefully this week i can get the bumper off to the body shop and have it painted while i wait on the car. Unless they need more than a fender to do the paint right...

    The bumper will look pretty tight painted, lights installed and installed on the car. I can't wait, but i need to get the car back first so i can take it next door to the body shop and have them install it.

    Tis the problem when your project is your DD. It's hard to do anything major when it;s driven. Hence why i like having a spare motor, I can build it and still drive the car. A motor swap only takes about 4 or 5 hours, depending on your skill and how anal you get about it. I can get pretty anal about the cars in my garage. lol

    If you follow the repair manual word for word, you'll do fine. It's rebuilding them where it gets dicey. As far as swapping engines is concerned, just be sure to take your time and mark ALL and group bolts together in Ziploc bags. Trust me, it WILL save time and help you keep your temper and a head full of hair. lol

    I'd also suggest getting a Haynes Repair manual. It'll help if you want to do your own maintenance. Obviously, Google is reliable as well. But, if you think it's over your head, ask for help. I did that with the Eclipse. I pulled the motor and decided to rebuild it instead of just replace rod bearings, got in WAY over my head fast. But in my stubbornness I pressed on. Now i have a new engine and the car's in the shop getting it installed. I didn't have all the proper tools to do the job correctly. Make sure before you do anything to your car that you have all the right tools. Now if i can just get my car back...

    yes Junkyards are great for parts that are decent priced. I need some sideskirts as well might need to go find some. I have also looked into public auctions of cars through insurance and police impounds you can get a whole car super cheap. i am looking for a civic that has rear end damage so i can just part the front half onto mine.

    OEM side skirts from a junk yard might be a good idea, but I'd get them new or used off the market, less chance of them being damaged beyond repair.
