rear end damage advice
Wondering if you guys can hae a look at these pics ... http://hotlonghairs.com/myphotos/car.html
this guy needs a quote just to make the car pass inspection, it's a salvage. I have some good pics. I've never done a repair like this but I suspect apart from the obvious replacement parts I'd have to use a porto power in the trunk w/ wood to line up the rear deck lid and latch/ opening. Does that sound right? Then somehow also smack down the reinforcement to line up and so the bumper will fit. Hidden replacement parts I'm guessing are a reinforcement w/ bolts, latch, striker, decklid hinges(?).
Is there anything else I should expecting? Is it hard to line up the rear decklid? I'm thinking so and probably shouldn't take this job but if he pays half up front I can get the porto power and any other thingamajig I may need. Any special tools for this? I'm thinking portopower and that thing that spreads opening? It's probably over my head but if he just wants it pass inspection it might be a good learning exp.
