Are you insured?

If you are, put in a claim and they will write the car off.

Unless you are good with metal, go to a panel beater (smash repair) and sit down. They will charge you more than the car is worth.

My suggestion will be to buy another car. Sorry, probably not what you wanted to hear.

That doesnt look so bad - a quick trip to a wrecker to get another radiator support, and bonnet, a few minutes to weld it in, quick paint, and your away. Even get the bumper if you want.

your dads alright with metals, but doesn't know what tools to use? don't get me wrong but if your asking what he should use .... then your dad [no disrespect meant nor intended] shouldn't be repairing ya car.
