If you don't mind me asking, how much did it cost to get the car "Fixed" after you hit the wall? (Cost of shell and miscellaneous parts.)

Thanks for all the kind words everyone

I spent I believe $1640 on the shell (delivered to me). Then I spent another $155 for a radiator support, and another $200 for a radiator and condensor. I also bought new headlights so that was another $155. Add in all the fluids I replaced plus miscellaneous parts I bought, I would say that I spent close to $2100-2200 for everything. I was quoted $3300+ for the bodywork for the silver car, and that was through my "hookup" so I guess I didn't do all too bad. Plus keep in mind that all my expenses for the focus + the purchase of my new galants were paid for by the $$ I made from parting out the silver one. Somehow I still manage to be perpetually broke though hahaha.

Oh yeah, your the guy who bought the shell from Marcy. But lets not get into that.
