    Might be stupid questions but i just got a 93 hatch and it has some nose damage ( please see pics). I 'm trying to fix it.

    1- Is the radiaror mount welded to the chassis or not. I'm having hard time getting it off ?

    2- Is this hood still good and repairable or should i just get an other one?

    3- Will any 92-95 civic radiator mount fit?

    4- Last pic , where can i get the door outer moldings or will any 92 95 2 doors ones fit ?

    Thanks.

    The radiator support is spot welded on the chassis, and usually can be removed fairly easily by drilling out the factory spot welds (or grinding through them carefully) and then use an air hammer with a chissle to seperate.

    Though from years of exp. I would suggest you inspect that thing a little more, because an impact like that has surely bent your subframe as well. If that is the case, you will never get a new radiator support to fit correctly, nor will anything else align properly. (fenders, hood, etc)

    oh, and the hood.. Damaged hoods, even some of the more minor damage, are hardly worth the time and effort to fix. The thin sheet metal is extremely hard to do bodywork on, without causing a ripple effect. Even the most experenced autobody techs. will have seriously hard times fixing. Buy a new one.
