It seems the 'white bonneville curse' has caught up with me. . .
Let'* make it short and sweet, i got rear-ended today.
Wasn't too bad, he was going about 15-20 when he hit me so not REAL bad. As you can see the bumper is a little messed up.
But seriously, you should have seen his car, '03 grand prix se, accordianed the hood and in need of a whole new front facia and headlights, not sure if there was any structural damage, we couldn't get the hood open. I'm really lucky nothing was damaged but the bumper, nothing happened to the tail lights or trunk.
What makes it look even worse is how all the paint came off, that'* because when the bumper was painted before (previous owner) they were dumb enough not to use rubberized paint so it woud flake off
If you look closely, you can see where i primed the part of the bumper by "BONNEVILLE" and the hump things on each side of the license plate, thats where the paint had started to chip off on its own before
So now i'm in need of a 92-95 SE bumper (i'm pretty sure they're all the same) so if anyone has access to one, i need it. I'll try the local junkyard see if they have any Bonne'* out there.
Does anyone have any idea how much a bumper might cost? I'm thinking i'll have it painted then i'll put it on myself, but actually i haven't even looked at it closely so i have no idea how its held on there. . .
Oh well, i'm not too mad, i needed a new bumper anyway
