Paint & Body Work - Hit a deer last night
05-23-2011, 10:02 PM
Was driving my 2000 SS thru Oklahoma last night and hit a deer going about 80mph. Going to be replacing the headlights, the bumper and the hood. Anyone know how much it would cost for everything?

Depends on where you buy it from, could range from $300-1200. Sucks but i have to ask.
got any pics of the damage? Never seen a camaro take a deer in the front at 80mph...

PLEASE post pics! The repairs can be very broad. I was hit by another person that ran a stop sign at 15 MPH and it was 4700 for repairs with NO frame damage.

I got pretty lucky the damage could be much worse. Kinda hard to see everything on the pictures, that metal bar behind the bumper got bent slightly and the hood is all crooked now and cracked.

Man you did get lucky!
I was expecting chunks of deer stuck in every crevice of the front end and total obliteration lol.
Damage looks very minimal besides the headlight, and the corner of the hood there. Other stuff can be touched up.
It may look different in person opposed to pictures, just telling how i see it. Look for parts in the classifieds (ie: headlight/other stuff)
you'll find them much cheaper, or at a salvage yard.

Back when I hit a deer in the TA in 2007 I was doing roughly 65-70 and it ripped up the front bumper, removed a headlight, cracked the hood and removed part of the nostrol inlet, and broke the side fender into pieces. Total repair bill was $6500 and change.
