Default '96 SC2 sedan hood latch question and radiator support ?

I really do not know much about saturn cars so bare with me.

My girlfriend has a saturn 96 sc2 sedan and she was in a fender bender and I guess it cracked the radiator support and the hood latch is bent to the side.

My question is how hard would it be to replace the hood latch? anyone have an hood latch for sale? Any directions? also, how hard would it be to replace the radiator support?

She took it to someone to get looked at and the guy said it would cost her $1000-$2000? Does that sound right?

I would appreciate any information or help anyone can give!
my email is terrjon@bvu.edu

The hood latch bolts on with two or three 10mm bolts. The entire radiator support assembly is roughly $100 on ebay and needs to be welded in place.

"SC2 Sedan" is a contradiction. Not sure if the coupe and sedan hood latches are different. The hoods themselves most certainly are, so the latches might not interchange.

Hood latches and radiator supports are the same for coupe/sedan/wagon. And the radiator supports are backwards compatable for 1991-2002.
