last night i was under the hood working and as i made one of the endless number of trips from the car to the tool chest and beck i noticed that my right quarter panel didn't meet up with the bumper just right. i didn't think much about it and went on with what i was doing, but after a while it got to buggin me so i took a step back and looked at the left side then the right and back and forth for a min. once i realized that someone hit my baby and then boogied out, needless to say, i was pretty pissed. i went to get an estimate from a collision shop and they said $1008 and 22 pennies. after i regained my balance after that staggering estimate i said fuck that i'll do it myself.

the point: does anyone know where i can get a front bumper (stock n/a) and a right quarter panel for cheap. i check ebay and supplies were limited.

thanks

Sorry about that the accident. Do you have a pic of it? I think we can tell if the price you are going to pay is right. Also you might want to call the junk yards and see if they have your parts?

Obviously didn't hit it that hard if you took a while to notice it, and then had to compare the 2 sides. Should be a pretty cheap fix, but body shops seem to have a minimum $1000 charge on everything they do...... :rolleyes:

you can always go to ebay and get a new bumper and panel thats what i did but it just might be the tabs broken on your bumper and thats an easy fix
