If my week wasn't bad enough already...
« on: March 07, 2007, 01:33:36 PM »
I go and crack my front bumper this morning by pulling too far forward into a parking spot and catching it on the curb. All winter I have been so very careful about snow piles, potholes, ice chunks on the highway, then it gets nice and I do this.

I am so angry with myself right now. I hope I didn't damage the FMIC, I don't think it hit, but the bumper will need to be replaced eventually. Just something I would prefer not to do.

Sorry to hear Jay :cry: Is it something that can be repaired with plastic welding (or something like that)?

Not sure if it can be repaired as I just did it this morning. I am going to take a better look at it at lunch. The guys on AW say about $1K for a new one, so I need to start saving my pennies.

I couldn't stand it anymore and went and looked at it. It MIGHT be repairable. So now I just need to go see Randy to et my oil changed then find time to get into the body shop to see what they can do. So now I guess it's time to figure out who to go to.

I guess the usual recommendations are Apex and SVE?

SVE...I will be taking some trim pieces to them in the next couple of months.  I have never hears a bad thing about them.  For me, it is worth the drive back up to Westy/Broomfield!!!

I certainly hope it is repairable, and that it will keep the cost down!!!

What is SVE?  I need some work done too...

I have an FJ fender with the Toyota cancer and pretty much my whole B5 needs a respray since Jen has been driving it...no wait, the license plate recess still looks good.  Other than that... :?
