your car doesnt look that bad, if you can get at the back of the fender you can bang it out, its not creased. and the bumper probably just needs reattached and some duplicolor matching spray paint

Cleaned the garage a little while a couple buddies used tools yesterday. Then later on I shortened my shifter. This is a popular mod on the GP scene. They feel the shifter length is too tall sticking out of the center console. In my Regal'* case, I replaced the shifter handle to a Bonneville 2000+ a while ago and the boot was not tall enough. I lowered it and now the boot/shifter looks just fine. Took about 3/4" off it. Sorry no pics yet.

Id like to see those pics Bill. I took a 2000+ T-handle shifter and put it on my 97. Boots a tad short also.
