Please be more careful than I was. I rearended an indecisive driver turning onto access road. Trust me, you don't want to see what Goldie's front end looks like now. It's sickening. Don't let it happen to you.

Goldfish65, was the back end of the car wrecked as well?
The big thing is, was anybody hurt? Can you put her back on the road?
Sorry to here your luck.

No physical injuries, thank God. Car I hit had minimal damage. Mostly I'm mad @ myself but the other guy didn't help matters with his stopping, starting, stopping. Meanwhile I brought Goldie to a friend's so I don't have to look @ the damage. Driver's fender, grill, valance panel& piece above bumper all damaged. Bumper ok cuz other car overrode it. It will all get fixed but not immediately.Thanks to all for kind words; I'm still in the 'anger phase' haha.

I'm sorry to here about your fender bender. The folks at Dr. Mopar helped me out after I creamed a 10point buck with my valiant. They are kind of slow to ship things, but they were really nice people to deal with.

Good news, Goldie got a new fender, hood, & grille. Bodywork & paint. Was totally worth it. Thanks for all the kind words. I'll have pics to show soon.

Goldie's new look. A special thanks to Neil B. for tips on rear window tinting. I used 'platinum plus;' I was leary of the metallic look but it really seems to go with the gold paint...opinions on tint, anybody?

I think the tint looks good. It will make an incredible difference in the heat in the car interior. I had the rear window tinted in my valiant when I lived in the south. It protects the interior also. It will save the necks of any rear seat passengers!

It's awesome! Looks very cool!

As I've said before, even though my window tinting isn't perfect, I've never regretted it. I would do it again and again and again, without even thinking about it!

It must have been a painful process right? But are YOU happy with it?

Thanks for your comments...I am very happy with the bodywork and paint and I'm glad I got the platinum tint. Tintdude.com says 65 cuda rear window is in the top 5 hardest to do...I mentioned this to the glass shop but they weren't worried...had to learn the hard way. It came out almost perfect but they put in some extra hours. Of course I learned the hard way about the hazards of impatient driving!
