Body guys plz look at my MKIV project (UPDATE)

I just got her 3 days ago, she was to cheap to pass up so i had to take it home. It runs like a champ and has 80k miles. Its an auto N/A but it didnt bother me for the price i got it for.

Im takin it to a friends shop next week to get worked on. It looks like it took a decent hit from the front but nothing is extremely tweaked. The airbags didnt even blow. Im pretty sure i will need a new rad support and some misc brackets etc.. Also gonna throw it on the frame straightener and see if anything is outta wack. From the doors back the car is cherry. If anyone can recommend some places to get parts i would appreciate it. Im gonna need all body panels past the doors and headlights/bumper lights.























I have so many plans for this car, when it is repaired. Before i buy anything for it, Im going to go USDM GTE swap and stick with the auto. Ive been doin my homework and dont wanna go the NA-T route and 6 speed swap is just way to costly. Im sure the 6 speed is funner but ill be happy with a TT auto.



UPDATED PICS/INFO
Here are some After shots i just got it back 3 days ago. I will post just 2 pics for now until i get them all resized later. I also have some underhood and underbody shots that i need some help from other members with i will post later.

Regardless what ya end up doin' with it, it's a steal at $3K. The GF got hers (N/A-Auto) for a little over $9K... and we thought we stole ours!!! No plans for goin' turbo with it either... it's her dependable, fun, and enjoyable daily driver.

There are plenty of t-boned, rear-ended Sups out there with the panels and parts you need. Good luck and keep us informed!

Dunno where you're at, but we will likely be getting rid of a Bomex front bumper that's been cracked, etc. Needs some repair, but if you're local to DFW it might be worthwhile for ya. I'll try to install the replacement bumper this weekend and then let ya know.... The GF was going to fix it and practice her fiberglass skillz, but then found a bodykit that came with another front bumper... I don't really think there's much hope for repairing this one tho (we'll see).
