Can someone with a bit of mechanic's knowledge explain to me how I can repair this vehicle? I don't want to pay hundreds of dollars to some body shop to fix it. I do have tools and I can buy whatever parts are necessary for the repair, I'm just not sure where to start.
>>
>>1330760

at a minimum - hood and bumper cover

you need to check the ac condenser and radiator for leaks, maybe fans. also you may need a radiator core support and headlight.
>>
Pull the bumper, and use a heatgun to straighten it.

Remove the hood, then hammer it back to shape.

Use body filler to get rid of debts in the metal.

Then primer. Then, color matched paint, and clearcoat

Or just fet a new bumper abd hood from a junkyard and paint them
>>
>>1330763
also pullup the real parts diagrams for your car like here: https://www.hondapartsnow.com so you can make a list of stuff to replace
>>
>>1330763
I already check all that. No leaks, lights are working fine and the ac/heater are still in operation. I think it is just cosmetic damage. Part of the front bumper is off on the left side of the vehicle, it looks like it can just snap in or out of place.

>>1330766
Good tips thanks. I do have a heat gun so I will try that.

>>1330767
Nice, thanks.
>>
>>1330760
Your car looks fine anon. Just hammer the hood out on a suitable surface, and use a hot air gun on the backside of the bumper, it should pop back out with some minor help. Replace the farsteners that are sheared and try to reshape the grille support struts with aforementioned hot air method. Use a respirator and pillows under your arms if you're a pussy.
>>
>>1330760
Buy a PDR dent remover gun on Amazon. They use hot glue and they don't ruin your paint. They cost 20$
>>
>>1330760
2nd hand from wreckers as its not an uncommon car so there should be a few out there, maybe in the same colour too.
You 'can' try what others suggested but it mostly comes down to "time or money", if you need to get it back on the road asap for work or whatever it could be quicker to do a switcheroo with anything bent. Check the front intrusion bar for bends, its usually behind the bumper and the radiator hangs off it- that might require some surgery with a hack saw and welder if its too fucked up. Otherwise you just go full bodge with a length of rope around it and yank/bend and beat it back into some kind of shape.
At least your lights look ok, they always cost a mint.

Thanks for you input mates, I really appreciate it. At least the lady isn't too pissed off at the damage.
>>
>>1330774
The hood looks like it's way beyond that thing's capabilities.
>>
>>1330766
The hood is trash and so is the bumper, but I've straightened a few bumper covers with heat guns. When checking salvage yards or calling them specify your paint color because if their parts match you won't need to paint. We did this all the time as the used car lot where I worked.
>>
>>1330843
I checked the local Pick 'n Pull and it is going to be ~$100 for the hood and front bumper cover. Not too bad I guess.

there's no fixing that hood. you'll need a new one or one from a wrecker. will also need a new bumper cover which isn't too crazy or you could maybe find of those at a wrecker too. plastic grill looks alright but can't see all of it to be sure. could also be things hiding behind that need fixed such as the rad
>>
>>1331192
Radiator isn't leaking so I think I'm alright. Its going to be about $100 from the wreckers for the bumper and the hood. I've driven it about 100 miles since the accident with no issues. Fucking ice.
>>
>>1330760
Very clean for that much damage.
No paint transfer. no blood splatter.
So, what did you hit anon......
>>
>>1331228
Sounds like you got lucky. Be sure to check any mounting points for damage.
>>
Use a hammer
Peen hammer and maybe cobblers hammer in addition with a Hyde hammer if you need specifics.
>>
>>1331266
I agree. That's got softbody damage written all over it. This mother fucker hit a person. No one help this dude cover his tracks. Anyone on /diy/ knows:

1) that hood is obviously fucked
2) hood and bumper swap is like 4 bolts, some Christmas tree push tabs, and a few trim screws.
>>
>>1331266
I will tell you the truth.
I was going downhill approaching a stop light. I was probably going 15-20MPH. I hit ice and went through the intersection and collided with a tree. Luckily it was like 2am and there was no traffic.
>>
>>1331386
I did this in heavy snow, only maybe 15 mph slid into an intersection (was driving a Truck which blow in the snow)
I tboned a guy in a van, but it was such a slow collision that it didnt dent it and it only left a few scratches. We didnt even call insurance.

Scary as fuck feeling though with ABS hammering away but you arent stopping
>>
>>1331308
Do you really think I would come here looking for DIY advice if I hit a person?? I hit a deer doing 40 MPH before and it didn't even do as much damage as that tree. Fucking deer was crossing the road on the wrong side of the deer crossing sign!

>>1331393
Yeah I was pretty fucking scared when it happened. First year driving this vehicle. All of my other vehicles in the past have had studs during the winter, but I skipped them this year. It was pretty mild as far as a winter goes and this was the first time that it froze since around Christmas. I wasn't thinking when I left, I didn't expect the ground to be iced over. You live and learn, I'm just glad nobody else was involved and that I didn't get hurt. Airbag didn't even deploy, but that has never happened to me.
>>
>>1331403
>Airbag didn't even deploy, but that has never happened to me.

Thank your lucky stars because that totals your car
Its not reasonable to affix new sensors and replace an airbag even in slow impacts. And if you do can you trust the airbag ever again?

I looked into buying a slow impact airbag deployed car for cheap and just couldnt bring myself to do it.
>>
>>1331409
Shit I didn't know that! I lucked out then. Hopefully I didn't use up my luck for the year. It's not even my car, its my girlfriend's car. She got it when her grandma passed recently, so she was understandable pissed at me, but not too much since no one got hurt and the car still drives fine. She even drove it afterwards and made no comments about it, so I think I'm going to be alright. Just got to fix it before her folks see because I know they would be pretty pissed.
>>
>>1330760
Did a similar repair on the same car model years ago

Ended up needing

New hood and fenders and bumper cover

New radiator and ac condenser

New radiator support (has to be welded on)

New support didn't have mounts for airbag sensors so had to fabricate some

Good fucking luck
>>
>>1331519
Was the radiator leaking before the repair? No leaks in mine and the AC still blows cold air. Honestly I haven't looked under the hood yet...

To be honest anon, you SHOULD have a dashcam
I bought one at the dollar general store for $15, its so cheap nowadays its inappropriate to not have one.
>>
>>1332659
$15 for the camera but how much for the rest of the setup? I don't want some Russian dashcam where everything looks like shit. I've actually thought about this for people who throw trash and shit out their windows. Present the evidence to them and tell them they could either pay me half the fine or I will submit to the state troopers.

>$15 for the camera but how much for the rest of the setup?
What setup? It's a fucking camera with a bracket and a power cord. What else do you need..?
>>
>>1332665
There is no other setup, its a camera with a suction cup mount and a flip down screen, You plug it into a cig lighter and it starts recording onto a SD card

> I don't want some Russian dashcam where everything looks like shit

Well its cheap, you need to buy something more expensive for it to be HD and look great.
I just try to bring it up when I can because a sub 20$ shitty camera is better than no camera at all. Its weird how nobody in the USA wants to record the crazy shit on the road, or have a record that they werent an at fault driver in a wreck.

I have one of these things that came in a different box. Though it sounds like you have thought about buying a decent one in the first place
https://www.amazon.com/Dashboard-Recorder-Rotatable-Camcorder-Recording-No/dp/B075F27FW9/
>>
>>1332675
Also this is touted as the best bang for buck dashcam out there, and its not even that expensive.

I went straight from my $15 one to a Viofo A119s V2 and dont regret it

>>1330760
Biggest issue will be getting your bonnet to line up with it's catch on the bumper. I just did something like this recently, I had to do a bit of hammering on the frame of the bumper support and some welding. Wound up costing me a little less than having it done properly. Unless you know what you're doing or have access to someone who does (which I did), would not recommend OP. Will find and post pics later

how could you possibly get any worse? you pay someone else to change your oil? is this a joke?
I am on the edge of depression or violence I cant tell which

also the oil change places are seriously bad bidnes. sometimes they don't change the filter. don't tighten the drain plug enough and it falls out 2 days later. strip the drain plug.
put in 5 quarts of oil but didn't drain it. now you got 10 quarts in there
a motor is supposed to have 4 quarts or 6 quarts but they still put in 5 quarts

it is very common that they don't change your filter

i used to do my own oil changes until i realized it's the same fucking price just to have someone else do it. I usually take my truck to this place right by the grocery store. my oil change is usually done right when im done grocery shopping. Saves a shit ton of time for the same fucking price.

Most other things on my truck i do myself. change of starter or alternator or anything like that, but an oil change is simple and just a waste of my time. It cost me $20 to get an oil change while i shop. To get oil and oil filter to do it yourself it takes about $20 and about 40 minutes of your time if you consider going to the store to get the oil to do it and actually doing it. not to mention the fuel it takes to go from point A to point B

I just have other things to do than to be changing oil.

Not a bad price at all. Remember to grab all the little hardware, plastic push pins etc when you pull salvage parts. That's another considerable convenience advantage of pulling your own parts. Most of that stuff is also cheap a the dealer if you need a few.

Watch some vidyas on pulling body parts to see how clips etc are removed. You can remove your hood before going to the salvage yard and install. the replacement on the spot. We did that with truck beds too. You can and should remove your damaged bumper beforehand cover to know how to harvest the good one. If you break any plastic clips save them for samples.

Its piece of mind anon, stop pretending your time is that important.
>>
>>1333142
>you were lazy so you paid some illiterate gorrila to damage your car while changing the oil
how much damage can they do to my car by changing the fucking oil? you think its that hard of a job that someone that does it 10 times a day is more likely to fuck up than you that does it once every 3 months? Holy fuck you are retarded.

If you want a piece of mind lift up the hood and take a look around once in awhile, check your own fluids that takes 5 minutes. I'm not saying don't do anything to your car im saying that changing your oil is so fucking simple that i dont mind paying someone $20 to change it while i shop when it'll cost me $20 to do it myself plus my time. There really isn't much benefit to you doing it over "some illiterate gorrila" because literally any illiterate gorrila can do it you aren't special. grow up buddy let the youngsters do the simple shit.

If it's doing something bigger than yes i prefer to do it myself because i trust myself more and it's way cheaper. how is that hard to understand you mongoloid?
>>
>>1333142
>I didnt take an intro to economics class, can you tell me what the term is for
opportunity cost basically means I can be doing something better with my time.
absolute advantage is basically someone that can do something more efficient than you because either A they do it all the damn time or B they already have the necessary equipment. there are also other factors in there.

You can't even use google and you are talking about changing your own oil as if its the most difficult task ever and only you can do it when auto shops literrally have teenagers first starting out do it because it's basically the most basic shit ever.

I can see what kind of retard you are.

>how much damage can they do to my car by changing the fucking oil? you think its that hard of a job that someone that does it 10 times a day is more likely to fuck up than you that does it once every 3 months? Holy fuck you are retarded.

Except he's not retarded at all. Learn something that may save you a shitload of money: Mechanics don't change your oil, lube monkeys who aren't good enough to be mechanics change your oil and the difference is considerable. One reason I became a mechanic is to avoid mongoloids damaging my property. I've been paid to fix many overtorqued and mangled drain plugs, often by replacing the oil pan because the design or lack of clearance would not permit repair in the vehicle. Typical lube monkey is yung, dumb and in a hurry. He overtightens parts, strips threads, crossthreads plugs, under-tightens or over-tightens oil filters and depending on the owner the oil you pay for may not be the oil you get. Remember you can't tell the difference without the container. Lube monkey isn't a career, it's something you do because you can't do better. If you cannot prove lube monkey left your filter or drain plug a bit loose and it unscrews a month or two down the road, good luck in court. Replacement engines aren't cheap and neither are removal, installation and other parts (hoses, belts etc). If you must outsource oil changes you may as well get your dealer to do them. You'll spend more money but unlike lube outfits a dealer has reputation to (sometimes) protect and much more importantly has access to new parts so if the dealer's lube monkey fucks up the dealer may be more willing to eat the fix.

General warnings:
When you buy tires watch to make sure the lugs are tightened with a torque wrench. A proper tire shop uses torque limiting sticks to run nuts down, then final tightens using a torque wrench. If you justsee Bubba with an impact, hope he doesn't crossthread, strip or crack your studs.

This is very telling. Its not a "big job" but it is THE single most important job which is why anyone who works on their own car doesnt trust someone else to do it.

>you think its that hard of a job that someone that does it 10 times a day is more likely to fuck up than you that does it once every 3 months?

Complacency and going autopilot at your mind numbingly awful job is when mistakes happen.

> how is that hard to understand you mongoloid?

Because it makes no sense at all. You can just admit to people you dont work on your own car. Dont try to justify it and dont try to convince others to make the same poor decisions. It IS a shitty idea.

You arent taking your car to a mechanic, you are taking it to an unskilled idiot off the street who works at walmart or jiffy lube.
A real mechanic doesnt work for slave wages, and that real mechanic isnt going to be the idiot stripping out your drain plug or neglecting to change your oil filter

i do work on my own car you moron. I have a mechanic friend that finds it strange that i will change out the rear end myself but yet go get my oil changed by someone else, he says it's usually the other way around. That people usually change their own oil and have the mechanics do the harder shit. I rather do the harder shit because it's more cost effective for me and I trust myself more doing bigger jobs.

The whole "if you want it done right, you gotta do it yourself" mentality can only go so far.

I usually have a busy life the time i get thats free i don't always want to waste it doing things that could've been done at the same time im shopping. I guess killing two birds with one stone has never made since to you

>>1333168
Thousands and thousands of oil changes go on every single day, you must have extreme bad luck or just go to shitty ass places in order for something so simple to get fucked. out of all the people that get an oil change in a day you are going to be that one? just your luck huh?

>>1333168
>Lube monkey isn't a career, it's something you do because you can't do better

I worked at a Kmart as a first job. It shut down during the first rush of Kmart shutdowns like in 2010. One of my coworkers (who was odd and kinda going off the deep end) ended up getting a job at the jiffy lube across the street.

Said they just got high and sat around until a customer came in, and thats its a really chill job.
He isnt mechanically inclined at all, and it cemented my opinion of oil change places.
>>
>>1333175
I rotate my tires myself because it's completely free, but if i am going to get new tires ill take it to a tire shop because they have a tire machine, i don't.

The only reason why i /diy/ with anything is if it is going to be more cost or time efficient if i just do it myself.

Changing oil is a simple task that my local lube shop does just fine while i shop for 20 minutes next door. Not sure how that is so hard to understand.

Saving all that precious time to shitpost on 4chan amirite?
Stop acting like you are losing money every second of the day if you spend a half hour every 3 months on changing your oil.

You are lazy and its going to bite you in the ass.

> I have a mechanic friend that finds it strange that i will change out the rear end myself but yet go get my oil changed by someone else

So even people IRL think you are retarded?
Good to know, he will give you a nice I told you so eventually

> just go to shitty ass places

You are the one going to places that work under cost and pay slave wages. Its not like you are going to a quality mechanic to get your oil changed.
If you were it wouldnt cost you $20
>>
>>1333181
>>1333178
also to add to this, i wouldn't want a mechanic doing anything besides the oil change on my truck, it has 312,000 miles on it and they are bound to screw up something if they touch something besides just the oil

>>1333181
>The only reason why i /diy/ with anything is if it is going to be more cost or time efficient if i just do it myself.

If you buy tires at walmart, they rotate your tires for free for a certain period of time.
Why arent you doing that? Do you know that rotating your tires takes TWICE as long as changing your oil? Also its cheaper for the tires!

TIme is money!

yes exactly, i don't have much free time in my life so the little bit of free time i do i have i don't want to be spending it doing something as simple as changing oil when i could've got it done while shopping.

I own and manage 3 rental properties, have an investment business that deals with corporate debt and a local handyman business. My life gets busy.

Its a childs job to change the oil.

>So even people IRL think you are retarded?
he just finds it strange. i guess most people only do the oil because they are retarded and that is all they know how to do and they think they are bad ass because they "work" on their car.

It's a childs job to change oil.

What exactly do you want me to say?

Concede that 30 minutes out of your day once every few months is worth putting your engine in jeopardy?

Do you understand that changing your oil regularly is not really important because your oil is burnt, but because the media in the oil filter starts to fail or the valve is opened. You can run modern oil for 10,000+ miles and still be protected, but its a horrible idea because oil filters dont last that long (especially the shit tier ones you are using).

Running black burnt oil with a new filter is going to protect your engine 100 times more than new oil with an old failing filter. It doesnt lubricate as well when it starts to get burnt, but the real damage in your engine comes from the particulates that the filter is supposed to filter out.
When you filter gets full, it has a valve inside that straight up allows oil to go right through and does 0 filtering at all.

Do you check to see if they change the filter every time?
How can you not give a fuck about putting the cheapest shittiest filters that dont filter well in your truck, how about the cheapest shittiest oils?

Its well known and been proven that lazy fucks at quick change places dont always change the filters.

How can you trust someone to not strip out your oil pan?
It only takes minutes of no oil to destroy your engine, it does happen when a slave is working to forget the drain plug or forget the oil in the first place. You could have a seized engine before you leave the parking lot.

Fighting with a jiffy lube to buy a new engine for your old shitbox truck is worth the time to you?

There are all sorts of pitfalls that these idiots could do.
How can the money you will have to put out, or the time and headache EVER be worth 30 minutes maybe twice a year?

For someone so intent on saving time, putting trust into a teenager to take care of your engine seems like a poor idea

t. paranoid tweaker

honestly i only get a couple oil changes a year, my truck leaks oil and burns oil so it basically changes itself and i just go throw in a quart every once in awhile and then when i feel it's been awhile go get oil change

If you want to say "huurr duur thats so bad for your engine" i've been doing this for so long and have put so many miles on that truck and haven't had any problems

No, just someone who has a decent vehicle that makes sure its properly cared for.
You know, like the person who owned the truck before you and then sold it to you with 270k miles on it?

But at least we got down to why you are defying logic, its because you drive a shitbox and dont care about it.

You are 100% right about the filter thing.
A guy I know owns a black car service with a fleet of E-Class Mercedes. He hired a couple of minimum wage fucksticks to maintain his fleet.

As it turns out one by one his cars started suffering oil starvation. It took him a while to find out the "tech" was using an oil suction pump to lift oil out of the dipstick and never bothered to actually drain the pan or change filters because that would have required removing the undertray, therefore too much work.

These same people work at oil change places.
They are lazy.
Sometimes they won't even bother to replace the copper washers on the drain plug or even take out the old O ring for the filter, which causes the filter to not seal properly.

If it burns oil try going with a something thicker. Like 10w40 if you normally use 10w30.
