sorry haven't posted here for a while.

well to give the latest...crashed the 2005 on the 405 on the way home from work a couple of weeks ago...still drives and runs great. Hood, grill and front bumper not so good.

call the insurance, took to a repair place, Insurance called it a total of course.

Well not bad, getting money, buying a GT/Turbo version this time, kept the car also and will fix it my self since it has only body damage. Went to pick your part today got all the parts to fix it for $107 lets hear it for 40% off weekends...yea...tomorrow I will spend the day in the back yard with a come along to pull the radiator support back where it belongs....will change the hood, replace the fan and got a radiator just in case. then when the Insurance arrives will be out looking for another.

I not a certified mechanic but I have work on cars since I was 10 years old and I am not afraid to try and fix anything, so this should be a breeze.

Met a young man at the pick your part in Santa Fe Springs he has and 06 that he had a crash.. told him about the site, hope he joins if you do..it was good talking with you and thanks for the help getting the hood.

What did they charge you to keep the PT Cruiser?

It's back together no leaks and it runs the fan kicks on and everything. Did find upper motor mount bolt broken. Will stop at pick a part on the way home tomorrow. The red hood looks funny but I will sand and paint next weekend.

Today, I sanded and primed and painted the replacement RED hood. Painted the factory PS2 Bright Silver Metallic....now I have to find a way to buff it out.

Happy hunting! I'll probably head out myself that day, but not as far out as Stanton.

Just curious, if anyone has a repair shop in the South Bay (Torrance - San Pedro - Gardena - Redondo Beach) area that they would recommend...... I'm thinking ahead to next year, when I will have the timing belt done.....
