Accident

Well a few days ago I was in an accident with my 05 Focus. Long story short I was heading down a road and I heard police sirens. I seen the cop last second and hit the brakes. Wheels locked up and I skidded into the cop.

The cop car only had a few scratches. However on mine it is a different story. Looks like I have to get a new passenger side fender, bumper cover, possibly the bumper reinforcement, and wheel bearing in the back tire from locking up the brakes.

Things could have been much worse however. Atleast noone was hurt and the damage was pretty minimal.

Now I guess would be a good time to get an ST bumper cover. My question is... will it fit an 05 ZX4 without any problems?

Another question is how hard would it be to replace the wheel bearing in the back (Drum Brakes)?

Is it hard to replace the fender? Anything I have to be aware of before I dive into this. Honestly it does look pretty easy but maybe a bit to easy for my liking.

I seen prices on Fenders anywhere from $25 up to $125... Why such a drastic price difference?

How much you think it would cost to have a primed fender painted at a body shop?
