  • body work guys: what do you think?

    Looking at the front bumper cover, especially the lower lip. Unit is priced "OK", not super cheap, not expensive. Worth investigating? Too screwed up? Sorry this is the only pic I have to go by. I am expecting to paint it blue to match my car and am trying to look at it realistically as a piece that will need painting.

    looks like a pretty hefty project.
    (dibs on the transmission, and possibly the rear end & driveshaft, if you part it out)

          I think the front bumper can be fixed.

              doesn't look bad in that pic...as long as those scuffs on the front aren't that bad.

                        I would be looking to see for amount of scratches and if the scratches are deep grooves in the plastic or just paint related. I would expect $300-400 for prep & paint.

                              Fixing semi-flexible plastic bits is always tougher than rigid pieces. You always end up with a more fragile part due to the necessary fillers, etc. That said, the knicks and scratches don't look too bad. If the price were right...
