The price of paint is a joke. I have a spray gun and a paint booth I can use. All the paint for my hood was under $150, that'* primer, paint, and clear coat.

Dan if there is no actual bumper material gone....you and or we can plastic weld it back together again.

I've done that to a few car bumpers now. Saves money and will look just as nice as before

I'm sure I'll take you up on that. Just another fix in spring.

No, it just slid across the front, ripped the fog light hole and ripped off the license plate bracket, so the screws got ripped off of that. Going to have to figure something out with that. I hate that fact we need to have a front plate in this state.

Well adding material is not the worst in the world, just takes a bit more skill....

We could hit up a salvage yard for material and may as well do that custom air scoop you want then

Should be fun!

Is there video surveillance outside your work aimed at the employee parking area?

I'm thinking about some ideas with this. I think I'm going to see if I can mount the license plate in a different spot, like way off to one side. Will have to stick it there and see how it looks.

No, nothing like that. The cop said he'* going to ask for the trucking manifest and question the drivers. That'* what he said, will see if he actually does that. On the plus side, I own my car, there'* no lean holder on the title. So I get the insurance money.

Any paint transfer from the other vehicle?

Boy it would suck to find out that your boss was responsible for this
