B series I assume? Pronosis would be borderline. How about to give us some info about the car and the policy? oh and some better pictures.

If it has a high value maybe not.

The bumper reo looks AU or newer as well.

It looks to be repairable.
Financially to have it done wouldnt be worth it but worse has been fixed in the backyard before.
Is the bonnet bulge damaged? If not and you get it are you interested in selling the bonnet?

it hit a car whilst it was goin 110 and the car in front was going 80... i wasnt sure if maybe i could take the front off another car that isnt damaged in the front and weld it on cause its really only the radiator mount and the bottom of the frame is untouched...

The cooler at the bottom of the radiator was the give away that it was B series. Yes is can be fixed, just depends how handy you are, you can get a B series rad support, glass bar and bonnet, I would be putting it on a chassis aligner before purchase to see if its even worth doing though.

Im cool if the bonnet is damaged. I would just be interested in the bulge itself.

Im A panelbeater by trade. Its an easy repair. But its also easy maths. How much can You do yourself. Whats the parts cost. Importantly are there any creases in the engine bay, compartment. Rather than the cost of "Car o liner". Take it and get a wheel alignment. That will tell much, Much, Much. Regards Daz
