Deer Hit

This page has photos me getting out comet back on the road after a deer hit.



The Damage





Here are a few pictures of the damage. The grille, some the headlight doors, radiator, fan and hood all were damaged.



Taking It Apart


Here is the front end mostly apart!



The Hood Gets Shipped



Here are a few pictures of the hood packed and ready to ship from Oregon! Believe it or not it is going by deluxe motor coach, Greyhound! I have to thank Jay from Comet East for all of this. He has been great!.



The Hood Arrives



Here are two pictures of the hood after it arrived from Oregon! Greyhound did a great job! It actually went on quite a trip!



The Grille Gets Shipped


Here is a picture of the grille for the Comet packed and ready to make the trip to Rhode Island from the Big Easy! I have to thank Karl from Comet East for all of this. He has been great!



The Grille Arrives



Here is a picture of the grille when it arrived from it's trip to Rhode Island from the Big Easy! Greyhound did a great job again!



Putting in a 3 row radiator.




Using a method developed by a member of Comet East cars club I installed a 3 row radiator in where a 2 row sould fit. The three row put in the right way is way to close to the fan.
Thanks Pixel!

Two of the pictures above show the two cuts I had to make in the radiator support to get the radiator to drop down into place. There were also 2 similar cuts in the bottom of the support. Although I did not relish cutting up the car, I could not get another 2 row (Dont make replacements anymore). Now I can put a 3 row back if something goes wrong with this one. With the 3 row it runs so much cooler as you would suspect.



Painted and Back Together



Here are two pictures of the Comet painted and back together!
