long story short i slid 20-25mph into a hard snow bank. impact was solely the lower front air dam and foglight area but

-bumper cap torn off
-core support only bent at bottom and fluid leaking
-hood won't close

maybe i can fix the damage myself? will post pics shortly

it actually happened on dry road. taking a left on green light too agressively nearly taching out 1st gear. it oversteered BAD, i tried to correct and the nose swung back hard again to the right. my stupid instinct took over and i locked the tires, nose shooting forward into the hard snow/ice.

i also remember the thermostat pegged at H arriving home but i didn't realize it till later. i don't know if there is a coolant hose that just tore loose or what. but i do remember the bottom corners of the support bent in. upper part of the support/headlight tabs aren't damaged. i'm hoping that its just cosmetic and the core just needs to be pulled out a bit. gonna try and take pics today now.

today i started the motor and let it run for awhile. suprisingly, it didn't overheat this time. but there was some more vibration in the cabin.

i just might be able to get away with slapping a bumper on and driving around with a bent in radiator
