AED Bumper Repair

I ended up meeting a large raccoon the other night... 4 major stress cracks and a few other minor ones (hope they are cracks in the paint). Off to the body shop to see what the damage is and if it is repairable.

Thanks man! I just dropped the front bumper off at the body shop. The guy I talked to was sure that it could be fixed, but their fiberglass guy was out and will be back tomorrow. Will get more info on how they want to process, not to mention a quote.

keep us updated, I have one as well that needs glass work, I am just wondering how much your repair will be.

Do you have pics?

The shop has to do some sanding to see how bad some areas really are. I"ll post the quote with a few pics once I get it so you have an idea.

Rad she isn't going anywhere. To much time and money invested at this point. I just need to be able to enjoy it long enough to put some miles on it.

I have an early day at the office today and will try to post pics later. The shop has a labor rate of $60/hr (which isn't bad) and they are estimating between 10-15 hours to repair. If you could buy a new front fascia, it would have been $750 plus shipping anyway. This puts me right there without having to add any additional cost for fitting and is much better than I was anticipating.

I guess that's good news.... still sucks that you have to go through that but as mentioned you'd be in almost the same position if you were starting over with a new one.... does that 10-15 hrs include repainting and blending the paint to match?

I'm glad to see you're getting it fixed and not giving up like some have in the past! Good show

Nope. That's just repair. Paint will be additional.

I wouldn't give up on her now. Too much time and money invested. Plus, she is still breaking in at less than 34,000 miles lol.

Been using it as a front lawn ornament? I mean, I would rather than take it raccoon hunting But yes its great to see you repairing especially considering the rarity of the kit at this point. not to mention the overall sexiness of the car.

Lol! I always seem to be working on it instead of driving it. The plan for this year was to drive it instead of working on it but, I went hunting instead.

Here are a few pics of how it looked before I took the fascia off. There were a few other areas that needed attention along with these, as the cracks went through the glass.

Must have been a big bitch haha. I hit a raccoon once. Took out my stock driver foglight

Which then led me to LED fogs. Which I like much better.

Not bad at all, mine is a lot worse. I bought the kit off a guy here years ago and he cut one of the side skirts up a few times for SOME STRANGE REASON, LOL. Who knows why.

The front fascia is cracked in so many places I need to really do some research before I attempt my repair.

The shop says that it might be done Friday. Which means I could actually take it out for a drive next week after the paint gets some cure time.

Quicker than I expected. Hope that it doesn't lack the quality. Time is something that is always in short supply. I feel your pain. Would start a project and never had time to finish it. This is why my car has low miles and it just needs to see some road time.
