start searching for NOS sheetmetal, grilles, and kidney.

 

INsurance is covering it, right?

Given the location, i was sort of hoping someone skilled could get the dent out.  But,now that I look it at you may well be correct.  May require a new front.

 

Won't bother putting it through insurance.  not worth the premium hit.    Thanks!

Nope.  About the hugest bolt I have ever seen, easily an inch in diameter, got kicked up by a car in a different lane on freeway this am.

You might check with insurance, I think that's a comprehensive claim, They shouldn't raise rates for that

you are correct, it would be covered. but, and having a lot of experience with insurance on a daily basis, and all certainty the premium would go up the fact that it is a comprehensive claim does not change that. Any loss on the policy, generally speaking, affect premiums.  but, thank you for the advice. It is greatly appreciated.

Dan,

 

Bummer. Suggest you call Junior at American Auto Paint and Body in Renton. They did the work on mine for a similar accident, albeit self inflicted in my case. You'll need to source your own nose clip and trim parts though.

My 74 suffered similar damage 3-4 years ago. After shopping around, I went with Haury’s  on Lake City Way. They were expensive but also willing to go to bat with my insurance company (Safeco), so it worked out ok for me dollar-wise in the end. To keep costs below the “Total” limit on my agreed value policy I ended up sourcing some used parts and delivering them to the shop. The quality of theIr work was excellent and the owner was enthusiastic about working on an 02.

+1 on Haury's, my 510 friends have used them with similar success.

 

A cheaper alternative is 101 Auto Body on Aurora. I haven't used them before but the same 510 friends have and they have good things to say. Definitely not a concourse shop, but a decent budget option.
