Looks good ! Finding the used parts is the key. That's why I have a hood and front/ rear bumpers sitting in storage.

Already repaired. I would not trade it. It's too good of a car.

Looks great. Congrats. Now get yourself an agreed value policy on that car (NOT a STATED value policy), that will pay you what it's truly worth in the event of a total loss. Then sleep well at night. It'll greatly reduce the chance that an adjuster will total the car in a similar future situation, and will at least pay you what it should in the event that the car is destroyed or stolen.

I have agreed value policies on my Corvette and my truck. Neither have any restrictions on how I use the vehicles, how much I use them or where I park them. And the additional premium is trivial.

Live well,

SJW
