Franco, definitely save your broken headlights if possible. You can salvage them and re-do it again. Just follow exactly what Leslie did to mount them on the old headlights. I would recommend getting a 2nd set of headlights (used on eBAy are cheap), because it will take some time. But if the projector insides are still o.k., definitely redo it. :D

All you will need is another set of bull bars (they are on eBay all the time), and your RAV would look exactly the same as before. Good luck! :D

I get a call from my mom saying they got into a car accident. Someone rear-ended them but they're okay. It was a chain thing. One car hit another car and that car hit the car they were driving. I didn't realize until after I hung up the phone that they were driving MY car! All fixed after $5,000 paid for by their insurance co.

Sorry to hear about your accident. It hurts when you just got your RAV repaired recently. Care to tell us what happened?

Hopefully it looks like something that can easily be repaired by ordering and painting a new rear door panel. The rear bumper guard can be easily and cheaply obtained from eBay.

I hope everyone is alright from the accident, and that insurance will cover everything. :D

Franco i am truely sorry about the Rav and i know it hurts after you have put so much into it, but as Mensajero said it's only metal and you can rebuild. God be with you my friend.
