    3 days ago i hit a deer on the way home at about 15 mph. it really dented in the driver side of the bumper and cracked the plastic part of my grill. i can order the parts off ebay found here http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120699640953

    and here http://www.ebay.com/itm/01-04-TOYOT...pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&vxp=mtr

    so on to my question. The local body shop quoted $1117 to fix the front but i would like to save some money and do it myself.

    Can anyone here supply me with some directions. I found this and it seems easy but no directions for the grill. http://www.autozone.com/autozone/re...tName=Bumpers&partId=0900c152802621a1#hd1-1-1

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Justin

    cant post right now on my work computer but it is only dented in on the drivers side and is still driveable. the mounting brackets also seem like they are not bent so i should be in good shape. the damage is minimal and i just need better instructions than what i can find.
