Front Driver Side Damage

07-07-2016, 10:57 PM
My son was driving his 99 GMC Jimmy today in bad weather and had an accident. The driver side front is badly mangled, shown in the pic. Before I go to a body shop, I wanted to see if any of you think the repairs to make the car just look reasonable will outweigh the car's value, estimated at $1800. If I can get a hood, side panel pieces and the headlight assembly from a local yard, can a body shop bend the front support back into a somewhat straight position? How difficult will it be to remove the mangled side panel and inside wheel cover?
