yikes....you have a bad day?

i know you admitted that you were at fault....but, you then made excuses why she was at fault too (waited at the light...loopey....etc). it's called an "accident" for a reason. cause you did it by "accident". no need to get so defensive.

I'm really sorry about your wreck Chris. I sympathize with you man.

On a side note though, watch what you do when you pay for that bumper to get filled. I talked to Doug from Crawford Z about his at ZDayz. He said they had tried everything to fill that hole and nothing worked. It really looked terrible. You can't weld metal to fill it, bondo doesn't stick apparently. Just be careful man. I hope that if you do it, yours turns out much better than his. He said they had redone and painted his 3 or 4 times.

I'm glad you'll have all those rock chips out though! I'm looking at the same thing! Got hit a couple of weeks ago and I'm just looking at all the up sides of it.

Everything will get better man.

Yeah, definitely give it a little more research and make sure your body shop knows what they're dealing with.

Other than that, like you said...It will all be better soon.

Sorry all of it had to hapen.

yea me too. good luck with your fix from the wreck you had too. I dont think the filling of the emblem will be a problem. Should be pretty simple really. I have a hard time thinking bondo wouldnt work. Just a good sand down and maybe some scoring in the urethane so it will stick.

just make sure they prep the surface. i know a few people who had problems because the surface wasn't prepped correctly. if the shop knows what they're doing...they shouldn't have any problems.

dude I feel your pain-big time. I gunned it around a corner and completely lost the back end (something still doenst seem right with this, certainly not the first time) and ended up doing a 360 right into a curb eating most of the suspension on the passenger side. Side airbags came out too...

Still trying to figure out what to do, cant quite swing the repairs (insurance lapesed about 6 days before-nice time to figure it out!)

Damm...enough with the wrecks and fender benders already. My condolences Chris...you have had more than your share of grief lately. Front bumper covers are not that expensive to replace altogether...she'll look better than new in no time.
