Hit a raccoon. WTB nice red front lower valance w/hardware & DS wheel well cover

Parts are for my 1983 944.

I hit a 200 lb raccoon 2 weeks ago on my way home from work.

I am looking for a near perfect lower front valance, guards red in color with associated hardware. Original finish is preferred.

I am also in need of the drivers side inside fender cover. This cover is right in front of the tire which bolts to the fender and the lower corner of the valance tying everything together and sealing off the air intake snorkel. Again this piece is for my '83 and differs from the full wheel well cover found on later cars. I can provide pics of my destroyed part for clarification if needed.

Please post pictures of the front valance with close ups of the normal stress trouble spots such as the central rib.

Regards,
Speedy

It wasn't quite that large but it was a big male coon. And to think with all the damage it did I didn't even get to eat it. I think it laughed at me and took off running after I hit him.

I definitely need the inside drivers side fender cover. I am having luck massaging the lower valance back into shape and am about 50% back to normal. I am going to work on it more Sunday.

I think Raccoon is code for "just some guy walking down the street."

Sorry there is no foul play here. There was fur trapped in the valance and police report to back up claims.

Parts anyone?

Speedy

I have a front valance from a '89 944 in red that is almost perfect, original finish, no cracking or warping. I can include all hardware and drivers side plastic cover and seal from a early 944!

$200 shipped to you

It appears I may be getting closer to a deal with commdiver on a valance. I am still in the market for the drivers side plastic inner fender cover for the early 944. Hit me up if you have one in good shape.

I received the front valance and drivers side plastic wheel well cover last night from commdiver. I wanted to share that I had a great buying experience with commdiver and would not hesitate to do business again.

He was patient even though I was having a hard time getting money transfered to my rarely used Paypal account. It eventually took over 2 weeks!!!

I am installing the valance now and am almost completed. I can't wait to drive the car again.

Anyways thanks again commdiver.

Speedy
