2001 740iL vrs 8 point buck

After lots of good luck with my BMWs over the last year, disaster! The 8 point buck slammed into the side of my car at full speed and I thought I had been hit by a truck. It pushed me off into the side of the road. Fortunately it was 530AM on my way to work so there was no traffic. The good old 740 absorbed the damage to the tune of $5600 and left me without a scratch, except for the sore shoulder from the seatbelt. The deer, well it was a clean kill is all I can say - neck cleanly broken. One of my friends was able to harvest the deer so not all was lost. VERY expensive venison! Now the rebuilding starts!!! Anyone have a complete 2001 740 bumper, bumper cover, left front fender, left drivers door skin, left bumper trim, left door trim front and rear, left front head light, left and right front driving lights and left side marker light and probably a lot more when I get into the rebuilding a bit more. Thanks to all. Will post picts as I start to rebuild.
