That didn't look very damaged at all. Worst would be if the frame is bent at all.

After changing washing and drying the inside of the lights and resealing the leaking housing and changing the new bulbs I went ahead and got the headlights reinstalled today!
Might not be perfect but they鈥檒l clean up pretty nicely and I鈥檓 not gonna complain since we scored the hood,lights, and complete bumper for 200 dollars and they were the same color 馃槀

Are you sure it's a 3.0? I thought all 3-0's only had one exhaust tip, and all 3.6 had 2 exhaust tips. I could be wrong though. The VIN # will confirm what engine it has.
Looking very good!! Having a lift is a big plus to doing this kind of work.

if I鈥檓 not mistaken, the 2008-2010 3.0L performance sedans had a dual exhaust and in 2011 and up they went back to a single exhaust for the 3.0L

I don't believe there was any 3.0 option in 2008/9, there was only the LY7/LLT which are both 3.6

Does anyone have a good recommendation on aftermarket fog lights/ bezels ? The bumper we got only had the covers and I need to find something to put in there so I can get the wires plugged in lol.
I searched fb marketplace, but no luck near me 馃様

Local salvage yard perhaps?
Lamps & bezels go for around $150 on Ebay.

What Long said, but keep in mind that the wiring does not exist for the driving lights in your car. You'll need to run a relay to them to turn on, you could tap into your parking lights and then you would have lows with driving lights and highs with driving lights which isn't a factory option. Enabling the fogs in a factory equipped car gets tedious so a relay is a good thing.

uhmmmm the wiring for the AFLis already there, I had to tuck them away for now because the bumper cover must of been from a lower level sedan without them. Lol

AFAIK, only the HID equipped cars came with the driving lights. The Halogen cars (like your new front end did not) and without the HID modules in place on an HID car, you would have a bunch of warnings going on. Someone might be able to confirm that.

I鈥檓 not too sure, the only warning light I鈥檝e seen after 3 test drives is service AFL lamps... well that and service stabilitrack because of the passenger front speed sensor so I鈥檒l be replacing the whee bearing this week as well.

"Service AFL" is due to the fact you have halogens installed on a car built with HIDs.

Bill
...nope it was me who missed your front end was replaced and your headlights are Halogen instead of what your car originally came with: HIDs...

pay no attention to this guy behind the curtain... 馃槼
