I have a 1970 vw bus.
It has been hit on the left front and side.
Left side is pushed in a little bit.
The door is destroyed.
The rest of the car is good.
I have a second vw with a good front end and left front door.
How do I exchange the good front and door for the damaged front.
Where do I cut the old front off etc. Etc. Etc.

I can take pictures to send.
thanks,

I and the bus, are in the jungle in Costa Rica.
I am a very good and creative person with great mechanical abilities.
I just need some good directions.
Thank you very much in advance.
I will go and take pictures

You really need a body guy for this but wher eit is pushed in you might try a come along to a tree and pull it back out. The door should unbolt to replace but you might need the hinges as they could be all messed up. Good luck on it.

of where to cut.
