Had a moderately bad fenderbender. No one hurt 'cept "Goldie." He needs left front fender, headlight ring, valence panel, left side grill pieces. Anyone have these to sell or know of a source? I'm in Atlanta. Thanks.

That really stinks. Best of luck to you finding the parts needed. I know of a a decent Valiant valance but it isn't quite the right part.

Thanks guys, don't be an impatient driver like I was because this is what can happen. I may have lucked out..heard from someone who's parting out a 65. Hey fstfish66, I think it's you who tinted your rear window..really sets it off. Gonna do the same thing to Goldie. Someday...

I had a bad day like that, it's turned into a bad year. Finding the parts was tough. I ended up welding two front valances together to make one good one. I still don't have the car back together...but it's coming. You're not alone!

The best thing is to not wait, just get at it! Get a friend to help too, that makes it easier and more fun.

Hey thanks for the encouragement Neilb. I agree, best to get back at it. Pallet o'parts should arrive end of next week. I really lucked out with that. So, you're the one with the rear window tint. I hope you believe that imitation is best form of flattery because I'm gonna do that to Goldie one day. Cuts down heat buildup.

Does it EVER cut down on heat! I got the darkest possible. The guy assured me he could do it in one piece, but he couldn't. 3 pieces. 2 seems, one down each side from the roofline down towards the trunk. You can only see them from the inside. He screwed up a couple of sports, right up by the roofline there's this sort of rainbow effect...but I'm really happy and I will always have my rear window tinted I've decided. It looks very cool IMHO. I had it done out of the car...I actually took the guy a spare window I bought and replaced mine because it had some big scratches I wasn't happy with. I spent a few hours cleaning it before I gave it to him.
