Thanks for the sympathey from everyone.  I am not willing to part the car out.  Sorry but I simply don't have the time.  Also, the interior has the comfort seats.

Man that sucks butt.

When my car was at the body shop being painted, someone there tried to
start the car while in gear and it lurched forward into the paint booth
wall.  (we're still waiting to hear from the guy when he finds work).
Anyway, with the exception of the headlights, that little stunt took out
the same stuff as on yours.  The hood and rad support was the biggest
hassle to get replaced, as there ain't no fixing them (and shipping on a
non-local hood is bonkers).

So I hope whatever works out ends up being a good thing for you.  In the
meantime, as the vultures start to circle, your black interior wouldn't
include sport seats, would it?

Thanks, and best of luck,
