This is done by wrapping the url in tags. Photobucket already has a wrapped URL that you can just copy as well.

Yea it is structurly sound. The radiator cross support was welded in by a mechanic friend of ours, in my garage, and everything else i did. I rear ended a Toyota previa on the freeway doing about 25-30. 4 car accident. I have driven the same way to work for 2 years, and on one thursday it happend. It only takes a second. I decided to go with the 90 euro grille. I have the emblem in my car. It turned out good.

so how did you go about repairing that radiator support? drill the welds out and weld in a new one?
good choice with the 1990 lumina euro grille.

Thank you all. It feels so good for people to compliment on this project. It was a lot of hard work were some poeple might just give up and i learned so much. First off it was awesome getting it on the road. The car sat on jack stands for almost 2 months, and she fired up on the first crank. I do plan on fixing the body, and hood, and painting it come spring. ANd i do have the red stripe from the other bumper. What we did on the radiator support was take a sawz-all, and cut just in front of the tabs. Then welded in the new piece. And let me tell you, if there is ever a time to replace the coils, that is the time. It is extremely solid. I really like the 90 euro grolle too. I plan on having iherback to the original state, but really im glad i saved this w-body. Its a great car, and it kept me safe. Im gonna get here back to this:http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y32/chewygum814/P8060171.jpg

damn dude that is awesome. I was complaing because someone side swiped my car right before I wanted to get it painted this summer. I still don't know whether to get the doors reskinned or just bondo-it. But that is nothing compared to what you fixed. truly an excellent do-it-yourself job. :D
