Someone just hit my car and ran off. Out of all the junk cars I've owned, it had to be my Cadillac. Anybody have any recommendations for someone to do body work? My damages are to the front drivers side door, mirror and my fender. The damages are minor but noticeable and for God's Sake, I can't drive my beautiful Cadillac around town with noticeable damage on it, not to mention it might do more damage if not fixed. The door sticks into the fender when you try to open it and I can only get it open about a quarter of the way. Any ideas how to pull the front fender out/up?? Around the Lafayette Indiana area

Re: body work
Remove the front bumper.
Then on the front side of the fender (behind the marker, down under where the bumper is sliding in) locate 2 screws holding the bumper. Remove the front marker. Behind the wheel on the lower side of the bumper locate the screw holding the rear of the fender. Then under the hood along the upper lip of the fender locate the 3-5 screws holding the top of the fender.
That’s how you take the fender out. Replace or repair fender and place-it back following the reverse instructions.
