What is a front clip?

My son had an accident and the mechanic said they needed to replace the front clip. What does that mean?? His car is a 90’s Camaro. I’ve never heard of this “clip” thing before..

    replacing a front clip should not involve any welding. It is the bumper and front fenders and the hood if needed. All those items bolt on and off therefore not sure why every one is mentioning the welding issue.

    I’d look at the car first, some people refer to the outer fenders grill and hood as the “front clip” whereas others may be referring to the outer and inner fenders, wheel wells, grill, radiator support, and bumper basically meaning that you would have a car with only a frame from the windshield forward

    It’s the entire front section (“clip” is just an expression of the trade) of a car, that is cut from a similar car at a wrecking yard and then attached to the damaged vehicle by a body shop.

    i work at an autobody shop, contrary to what the others are saying about “welding” the front of a car onto another car, that is called a “front half job”, a front clip consists of, left and right fenders, bumper, bumper support, core supprt (this part IS welded), and sometimes hood. there are a few other small parts in a front clip, but it would take to long to list them all.

    you want to find a similar car that has been wrecked in the rear as you need the whole front end replaced, I would go to a junk yard!
