I just happen to have a quote from my body shop right in front of me. I had a semi truck clip my front bumper a while back.

$373.63 is what they quoted me for just the bumper. They also said I should replace the crash foam ($46.02) Then you have to add labor, paint, and tax for a grand total of $848.06

Luckily it wasn't my fault so I don't have to pay for it.


BTW, I decided to spend an extra $180.00 out of pocket for the Rieger front bumper. What a deal

OUCH...radiator, ac coils not to mention the body work.
How much DID that deer drink? (sorry, couldn't resist)

Hope the insurance co does you right. Have fun part shopping.

PS Keith look at that last photo...it's a great shot of the rebar that you may have to cut for the Rieger.

actually the rebar on the newer focus's are slanted. i guess the changed them because of so many people saying they had to chop em back. the power steering coil is fine. not bent (if it is not bad at all). there are two plastics clip that snapped off which saved it. will have the euro fender next week and the Reiger front bumper at the end of the month once the check clears. Tomorow I HOPE!!!! then just need the radiator bracket fender wells and im gunna try to salvage the radiator. it doesnt leak so im gunna try it out with the new bracket and if it works then it will stay for a lil while. if not i have a radiator repair guyt hat will tweak it back for cheap!!! Cant wait to get her back together. Turbo over the winter high 11's in the spring!!!!!

Let me know how the reiger install goes, and if you can picts it would be great.

And I didn't say that you were drinking...I said the deer was: Why else would he be in the middle of the road at 3am.


I never miss a chance for a punchline.

Seriously, I know you were caught unawares and I'm glad you ( or the deer?) were hurt.

I've lost people as well to dwi
