Re: Possible Cost of Bumper Repair
I don't actually know the guy personally, I just would recognize the truck if I saw it and would have to confront the person. I think I'm gonna have to suck it up and fix it myself. For the life of me don't know why there are prices for the facia online between $40 and $400. I assume the one on rockauto is absolutely bare, I'd have to get it painted and then transfer over the emblem, grill components, fog blanks, etc. I'd hope it wouldn't be too hard, but then again... I may hold off for a bit, it's not THAT bad a stab as what I originally thought it looked. Maybe at least snag a facia for the $40 price tag in case they're gone. People... some of them are crazy. Never know what you'll run up across. Interesting story on your mirror, wow!
EDIT: Son of a.... sure it's $40, but shipping is $183. Maybe better off with pick-a-part... local place prices $40 for bumper cover with grille, take your tools and get it yourself though. Then I'd have to have it stripped and repainted unless I could magically find a golden pewter metallic! Decisions decisions...
