Default Rear Bumper Ripped off !!!!

:( The spot in my garage where I park the Bonne is vacant tonight.


The rear bumper has been removed, sanded and primed.
The Bullet is resting in the shop tonight with an exposed rear end.

Bullet'* bare Butt is hanging out.


I told the painter that there is a bonus in it if he does a perfect job..........if not he will have to repaint it.

Tomorrow it gets painted and should be ready for pick up after work.

No more Butt ugly bumper scar.

I had to go pick up Victor from work 9:30 pm, so I drove by the shop to check up.
Yup, they actually parked it butt naked outside in the rear impound area.

It has not seen the sky overnight, without being under cover for a long long time.


For that they will get a reduced bonus

It'* a $300 job, so I start with a 15% bonus and cut it back to suit. Just like you'd do at a restaurant.

That would explain why you never moved away from your bumper. I didn't know you had a scar on the ole butt.

I woke up twice last night. Once I actually had a nightmare that the Bonne got stolen. When I went back to look at it in the lot, it was gone. .........Whew, glad it was a dream.

It has been sunny and dry the last three days thankfully.

He did an excellent job.
I am not going to take a picture of my Butt
Just know it is perfect now.

My bonus of $50 dropped to $40 because they left it outside all night and I had to wipe it down when I got home........also because it gave me a nightmare

Total price with tip and tax was $370.
