    Are the frame rails bent? If it's just the upper and lower support beams (tie bars), these can be removed and replaced rather easily. Cost about $70 each new.

    Removing the entire front clip and adding another one involves cutting and welding, and that's a pain in the ass, or costly, which ever route you go, and you risk a LOT when you go that route.

    yeah that's going to have to be aligned by a body shop dude. It's either cut and weld a front clip, or get the frame all straightened out by a body shop.

    You're going to need a new bumper support and basically an entire front end.

    Damn, not quite sure what the best route to go here would be. How was this car not totalled?

    That's the thing about accidents, they might not seem so bad at first, but once you start taking things off, it starts to look worse and worse. Your frame needs some work for sure. I'm not certain how much a body shop would charge you, you can ask for an estimate, but they typically need to see the car in order to tell you, and that suckers going to have to be towed.

    As for radiator supports, it's going to do you no good to get the ties if the frame around it is mangled.

    That might just help. Ask the guys you talk to if you can send them some pictures, and ask them if they want anything in particular photographed. It'll help them determine what needs to be done, but probably still not a fully accurate estimate.
