Deer Hit Damage Finally Fixed

After waiting about 3 weeks I finally had my front fixed. It took more time because I made some changes. I put the 6.0 trans cooler in, the deer broke the brackets and bent a lot of fins over on the old one, I replaced the AC condenser( man that looks nice now, no bent fins) the factory fog lights did that and really most of the damage, they were smashed to little pieces. The oil cooler was ok. I replaced the front bumper, I went with Top Gun because it was reasonable in price, looked really good, did not weigh a ton, and was really built well. I did not want all the brush guard stuff but needed to mount my lights. I still need to clean up behind it so it looks clean and paint the blocker beam and frame to make it look good, a can of flat black makes it look new in a short time. I'll get better picks when that and the summer rims go on. I also sold the pickup, I was getting 8 mpg and 50 mi a day was killing me so I drove the X on dirt for a month, now I have a 94 chevy corsica so that is the end of dirt roads for the X, I am getting 27 mpg with the car, thats insane from what I am used to. I snapped when I had muddy water in the reverse tail light lense of the X. I paid 1200 for the chevy and it paid for itself today when it rained and I had to drive a dirt road...what a mess. Here are some pics.

If you don't Line-X it then it's easier to touch up later. Looks super good though.
