Default Sunday Accident With Good Info

So last sunday I ended up rear ending a jeep. I have 2004 Nissan maxima SL with navigation system and everything. The lady hit her brakes all of sudden in which I didn't manage to stop before I rear end the jeep. Luckily no one was injure. Since she had a spare tire in the back of her car, it lifted my hood and smash my whole front. The only damage in her car was her gas tank. I decided to share this with my 6th gen family, so you guys can see the process I am going through. My insurance did NOT cover me but will pay for the lady(jeep) repairs. I am going to be updating the progress with price tabs for valuable information. The engine is still good!! Most important part!

Day of the accident

Damage parts
-radiator
-radiator support
-hood
-grill
-bumper cover
-crack battery
-cooling fan
-air bag sensors
-air flow intake-just the lower part only not no electric part
-engine cover
-fuse cover
-headlight just got a couple off scratches not too serious
-all the other screws and rubber support parts

Luckily no one was injure! The air bags didn't go off because the sensor wiring got cut off during the impact.

Since I already knew I needed a new hood I smash it down as flat as possible, just so I can tie down the hood. In order to take it to the auto body shop, I had to order the cooling fan and radiator so the engine wouldn't heat up. #NOTOWTRUCK! Too much money!
Parts
-cooling fans-$75 eBay
-radiator-$70 eBay
The AC radiator and pipe lines are still good so no need to repair them.

Today I drop off the car to the body shop and they gave me the prices for the other parts
-hood-$95
-radiator support mount-$75
-bumper-$80
-grill-already had an extra one-
-labor- between $350-500 not sure yet, will inform when I find out. And these are today pictures
