Took a hard look at it. Cracked the headlight support panel. (no problem have a spare). Broke a mount or two on the head light itself. Its kinda lodged right now under the bumper lip. Probably will pop right back up if I pry it out from there, except the hood is also squashed onto it.

Looks like some fat guy sat on the corner of the hood and crap his pants. LOL

Debating on seeing if anyone has a set of Euro headlights, maybe I will swap them out. If I ever get the Euro mirrors from Eric too.... :P

Glad to hear there isn't too much damage then. In the 10 years I owned it I never hit a deer....within the first 2 weeks you have it, you nail one lol.

Jesus, Ace. Wtf is it with you and hitting deer? :P

Btw, don't you know the old rule? You don't stomp on the BRAKES, you wail on the GAS when you're about to hit a critter. :D

You'll get her fixed. Looks like you skated with fairly minor damage this time compared to the Aqua Zed.

You definitely did scare the crap outta that deer though! :P

hahah

If I had stomped the gas, I would have had deer in my lap. I just tapped it in the ass, and it crap itself and kept running! It basically sat on the hood when I hit it. Missed its legs completely.

Still sucks though. Hadn't even had it on the road a full 7 days.... LOL Now to find a hood and some head lights. These are pretty yellowed anyway. See what the adjuster says when he comes out to look at it. :D

I think I have a nice looking pass side headlight if you're interested! I was gonna say, the headlight and hood looked pretty shot anyway! I'd just be happy it was the base and not the Z again!

Cool, will let you know. Depends on what I can get for repair cost. Anything over about 1500 will probably total it. And I can easily see it being that high... *sigh

This ^ made me ROFL pretty good. Sitting here in front of my laptop having a vision of a deer with a scared shitless look in his eye , ass sliding across your hood, shitting himself the whole way and hopping off into the woods with crap running down his ass and legs.

Almost brought tears to my eyes had me laughing so hard! :P

You'll get better sound if you face your speaker box to the rear of the trunk... IMO.

No it won't. Its still not working anyway. Going to ax it. Sure someone will take it off my hands for 50 bucks. And I mean someone that is local, as I'm not shipping this thing, it weighs a ton.

89 headlights have a different style lens pattern, but otherwise they're the same.

Well, get me a pic of them if you don't mind. Just want to see what the ones you have look like, condition, etc.

Edit:

That was meant for Ron! LOL
