You must be referring to the 450cc model.

Hey hey, a rebel is a fine little commuter ( Jesus I sound like I ride one) I wouldn't call it a moped.

Well I just checked a nearby pawnshop... C9 for $138 new. But the whole reason I was even in the area is because my wife hit a deer on her way to work, and wanted me to look at the car before she tried to drive it back home. Luckily the damage is all cosmetic, but I was told the pearl white was the most expensive paint Cadillac used. I don't know. But what I do know is that the car is too nice to let it sit all banged up, so I need a new hood (correct color of course), grille, headlight and mount, corner light and mount. So I'll be NOT getting one right now.

Sorry to hear that, glad the wife is okay. I work in the auto body businesses, and it is true the pearl paint (triple stage) is more expensive. Good luck finding those parts in color to match...but beware: me sure you look at the 8th and 9th digit of your vin number and compare it the the vin number on the parts. You may think its the exact same color, but the minute you put it side by side, Wah wah wahhhhh.

Thanks for the heads up, I'll definitely be looking for that. Yes the wife is fine, she was a bit scared and upset because she "hit a poor little animal". I said look what that "poor little animal did to your baby"

I've gotten off subject. But I found all the parts I need off a car that was rear ended by a pickup. I'm replacing all for $150. I'll have to get the hood painted though.
