The wife had a run in with a deer last night and now I have another project.
Everyone is fine and the damage was minimal the air bags didn't go off and the alignment seems fine the rad held it's water luckily because she had to drive another 100kms to get home.. Thank the van Gods she and the kids made it home OK!!
I plan on starting the teardown tonight to get the full damage report..

Wow, looks like the deer bled acid and melted your bumper.

Sorry to hear about the bad luck. My wife hit one a few years ago in a Dodge Neon, one antler penetrated the roof just above the windshield which probably saved her life. The deer flipped up and over the car but the windshield had already split and was giving way. It would have come inside if it hadn't caught the roof. I thank God for that, deer kill a lot of people in accidents.

Glad everyone is okay! The van doesn't look to bad. Did you check with the insurance company to see if they would cover the damage? I know sometimes it works out cheaper to just do the repairs yourself.
