My girl got ran off the road by a semi. Here are the pics of her car.
It looks like the front part of the frame is bent, but a new piece can be bolted on. Any insight would be great. I want to be able to do as much work as I can on the car without taking it to a shop.
Let me know..

That front frame bracket is bent to the right.
Cant really tell unless I was to see it in person, but from the pictures looks like you should be able to throw a bumper and headlight and be good. If the core support is pushed back you can get a wench, some chain and telephone pole and have at it.

yea there is a piece at the very front of the frame where the bumper reinforcement connects to and it can be replaced.

i dont know about all that, there could be more too it, mustangs are week and cant take a lot of punishment, how hard did she hit? I know when i had a 93 camaro, i backed into a mustang(same model as that) in the quarter panel, it dented the car all to hell and there wasnt a scratch on my camaro.

You could always pull the remnants of the front clip off and trailer it to a frame shop. Have them give the frame a once over and straighten it if it needs it and then put your body panels back on. Did this with a truck back in the day.
