    post a couple pics. It could be to far gone if the unibody is bent ( inner supports and such in the trunk, suspension mounts) but if its only cosmetic go for it

    Yeah trunk and bumper is really easy stuff.. but check underneath.. Make sure the unibody hasn't been crunched. Also, look along the rear quarter panels and make sure there is no buckling or damage there. If the quarters have even the slightest hint of buckling I'd pass. I'd be ok with very minor frame (unibody) damage at that price, but not much.

    Usually in that case, the trunk floor panel is wrinkled like a vee but that's an easy pull which wouldn't require a machine, also the frame ends are going to be slightly bent in. both aren't hard to fix, but the car will never be 'perfect' again.. it wont affect handling or stability tho.

    please do not post incorrect info
    it the frame ends are tweeked and the floor is wrinked it means to safly repaire the car it must be placed on a frame jig tyo pull it. You don't have tools that can do this at home.

    Don't post getto info
