    That sucks man. I remember how I felt a few months ago when I totaled mine. CTS vs brickwall.
    I have a stock grill sitting in my basement...it's yours if you want. PM me your addy and I'll send it to you.
    every little bit helps right?

    When I was younger, my dad had a one of those big K5 4x4 blazers. He hit a dear in MI going about 40 and caved in the whole passenger side hood, bumper and fender(much like yours). Dear popped up and ran off like he just tripped. Just curious, what happened to your dear?

    Re: 03 cts vs deer. help me please

    I hit a deer while driving from my home in FL going through Texas on my way to San Diego to visit my sons during Christmas (runting season for deer). Luckily I suffered no major structural or mechanical damage and was able to continue driving the remaining 900 plus miles to my destination. Stopped in Fort Stockton for that night. Happened approximately 9:45 PM. I saw the deer enter the highway I-10 going from my right to left and figured PHEW he'll be gone by the time I get to his position and began slowing from 65mph in order to leave more space between the two of us. Suddenly the goof ball reverses course now running back across the highway from left to right and stops dead center in my lane just as I am closing on him. I thought for sure I had enough room to stop since I had already begun hitting the breaks. So I begin to swerve into the left hand lane trying to go behind him and he reverses course yet again! making impact a certainty. All I could think of was that was like some NFL running back making cuts trying to get through the line and yet... Wham! at first I thought I had stopped just in time but knew when I heard the thud there would be some damage. And of course the deer gets up looks back at me and bounds off as if to say "That's all you got?!!" LOL

    When I arrived in SD my insurance co paid for the repairs which cost a grand total of 4366.23. Big ticket items in the repair New hood - 1052.12, new front bumper cover - 602.86, new grille - 428.48, and some molding strips - 152.65 hood latch - 129.00. They had to actually pull the driver side front metal radiator support forward as it had been bent slightly backwards.

    If you have collision insurance on the vehicle, your insurance should cover it (except for any deductible); after all, it is a collision regardless of the fact that it was wildlife rather than another vehicle. Check with your insurer before comitting to do-it-yourself.

    @ Redcaddy83... Message me... I live in Clifton and am not an autobody guy but saved some money because parts I get a discount... I had a similar issue with my caddy and bought a bunch of parts at discount...

    ----------

    Also call Lacey Auto in Newark, they had a few caddy's on their lot when I was getting parts... They don't have the caddy's anymore but they stock many parts... If they have anything you need let me know and I can get the price brought down with the one guy I dealt with...
