Getting back on track!

Its been 2 weeks since the crash that left my EB undrivable.
So far its cost me $580 to get about half way too bringing her
back too life. This has included... 2 front headlamps, bonnet and
grill, new water pump, recond power steer pump, fan and clutch, front bumper, air con condensor and accumulator. The bumper and bonnet are red so i will need to get em sprayed stark white.
Whats left is that i need to get the top radiator support straightend out and install a new radiator. Hopefully this will all
fall under the $1500 mark. Hoping to make the brissy meet but i think finances will delay the work a week to late. One good thing is that ive learnt shit loads about my car and now i know the cooling system and power steer pump are all in excellent condition. Would anyone know how much (approx) it would cost me to push back out my radiator support? (the one with the bonnet latch on) cos its pushed in on the right side about 2 inches. Oh, BTW i found out i DO have a trans cooler built into the radiator.... it spewed tranny fluid out the pipes when i test started her today! =)

"Built ford tough"? Hmmmmmmm

I don't know how bad the damage is but if it's too much then you might have to get a new radiator support welded in. Would probably cost around $450 to get that done.....that's without buying the rad support though. I've forgotten how much I paid for mine. I think it was around $120 or something. Or else you could hire a "porta Power" which is like a big hydraulic shock absorber and push the rad support back out. This will work if the damage to it ain't too bad.
