    do you happen to know what the black piece (looks like frame, or subframe under the car) that goes all the way to the front and connects to the bottum of the core support? I have all of the same damage to my wagon the motor might be worse then yours though won't know until i get that far
    good luck with the rebuild!

    You are essentially going to be welding a whole new front clip on the car. As for the engine. I'd get a new one and part out that one. There isn't too much left that is going to be usable.
