hahah did you take it to the shop yet how much did they say it would be to fix
no i didnt yet but i have a feeling that if i got the whole thing replaced it would cost me about 600-700 at a shop after labor and everything i dont know i might just get a shop to just pull it straight again might be cheaper

i was going to have the body shop pull it all out but they wont 50 a hour so i went on acuraoemparts.com and for the whole thing for number 10 is 243shipped
but if i have to welded some thing then i might just take it to the bodyshop becasue i cant find no bolt on it when i look at my car

I'm doing a LOT more than just that...lol. The engine bay is completly stripped and prepped to be painted, fix the front frame, engine rebuild/assembly, turbo install, custom manifold, custom IC pipes, custom exhaust/dump/down pipes, gauge install, 4.0 FD install w/tsx 6th, etc...

12 and 3 are bolted and the entire set up ("10") will come completely assembled. Its called a core support or radiator support. The entire "10" will need to be welded on after your entire core support is cut off. Pretty simple if you have doen it before but it can be a bitch to drill all the spot welds out.
