Default The Curse continues

I was backing out of my garage yesterday morning and wasn't paying as much attention as I should have been and I started turning a little bit too soon and in the process I knocke out my marker light and scratched the bumper a little bit. Not much damage, but now I'll have to wait a couple of months to get the parts cause I already spent my income tax refund.

Nutz...well, you might be able to fix the bumper yourself. And those side markers arent all that expensive.

All in all, you should be fine to fix it. Still though...thats gotta be a **** off

Does somebody know the part number for the light and for the one that'* in the bumper as well. It broke last year and I stuffed a rag behind the bumper to hold it in place. Both of them are on the right side. And also what'* the part number for the grille. It'* cracked in half from last years accident of hitting the dog and my emblem is also gone.

The part numbers for those parts aren't supported by GM any more. You'll need wrecker parts to put it back together. Sorry to see that, bud.

This situation doesn't sound like the curse it sounds more like the driver not paying attention. I don't think it would have mattered if the car was any other color. It sucks to have happened but I call 'em how I see 'em.

I checked around and www.buy-gm-parts.com has them. I checked all the parts I need and the total comes to almost $160 dollars. I still think i'll check out the junkyards first.
