Accident
Your attitude, efforts and interest in helping other s (all here) with info and involvement should be commended !! I took notice to the "insurance thing" in a prior post as we have all been forced to capitulate to using inferior products per "fine pint" of policies !

For years I kept almost every NOS part for a front end collision with a SVO Mustang -so that the unfortunate (that had accidents) could show insurance companies that Ford parts were available. (Only once did a company accept the amounts and pay for Ford parts for a repair)

Too late now - but those parts needed for your car are avail in NOS Ford (red oxide) and with the NOS front bumper could have gone a long way to getting you covered. (It sounds like you are -so let's hope no one needs these parts or a quote again)

Mark
P.S. AND AGAIN, thankfully you weren't hurt

John if the body shop doesn't find the grill bracket I sent you, let me know I will send you another one for the cost of shipping -
I think you already covered enough of add on's with the door / fender and engine issues.



ALSO since Mark brought up NOS - OEM parts

Just a heads up for everyone here ... look on your daily driver insurance ...

My insurance company made it an optional coverage  ... USE OEM PARTS  VS LKQ = like, kind, quality
it is pretty cheap option depending what you drive ...

No not yet, but it’s mostly done. Just waiting on headers to come in and it still needs a front end alignment. As a matter of fact I went there yesterday to check it out. I think it turned out really nice.

It will be a show winner at the All Ford Show in Dearborn on August 18th!!
Maybe I won't want to compete in the "Judged" class now! Looks awesome John. A costly accident, but look at what you have now. Just don't drive where lampposts are lurking!!

I learn something new every day!

Thanks Geoff, really appreciate the kind words! It would be nice to snag a trophy, but it is still just a driver. No big expectations in that department, just happy still have it. I thought for awhile they would total it. And it came within 1k of it being totaled! 
So ya it sure did turn out to be quite a costly accident, mainly because I had the engine completely rebuilt and I also had them match all the black on the car, including the stripes. But now it’s better than ever and I have a new car again. I couldn’t agree more with you about no more utility poles! Lol

 I'm pretty sure the "Judged Class" is not concours by any means, just the best of rest. Mark will know better. Besides, when you enter judged, you get a goody bag!!
See you there all being well.

Looking back at page 1 of this thread and these latest pictures, looks like the drama ends up very well.
