Default Repair Questions and Suggestions

Hello Miataturbo!

A few questions.

First off, if anyone in the Northern California area knows any good body shops that have experience on miatas let me know!

Basically my problem is my front end and transmission.

For the front end:
Got in a front end collision and had some damage. Radiator support is bent and so nothing is lining up right. Hood was bent significantly as well. Also the metal bar underneath the top of the bumper was bent and cracked all the way. Roughly how much am I looking at to repair or replace the bumper, passenger headlight, passenger turn signal, hood, and radiator support.

I also have a very high pitched whining sound coming from the transmission when the clutch is engaged. How much would a swap job be if I brought in a replacement tranny?

On a side note, is valve tick a common thing?


Here's a few pictures of the damage

Passenger side light top and trim broke off. Motor still works but it jams because it can't go all the way down due to the bent radiator support.. Also the fenders are toast.

Drivers side light still works

Radiator was pushed back so the hose is flush and bent agains the intake.
