I'm a college student. I just got into an accident. Here's a photo:
As you can see, the front bumper has been pushed in and the fender was pushed back.
I've decided to try to tackle this myself to save money. The lady who hit me is paying me $2000, so I've got a bit of a budget- though I'm not keen on spending too much of it. I'm trying to get her back to where she was, approximately.
So my main issue is the fender. I can get a new fender from ebay, and then paint it myself- will it look ghetto if I use primer + spraypaint + clearcoat?
Also, where the fender mounts (on the corner of the car) took a pretty darned big beating.
Finally, the star bolts that hold the fender on (right beneath the hood) are stripped. What can I do?
Please advise- I'm a complete noob.
