Alright so I guess this stuff happens. A girl ran into my car in a parking lot, no lie. The damage next ot the tail light in the lower pic is kinda hard to see, but its basicly a straight vertical split. So what should I do to either of them for the time being until I can afford a new bumper and notchback panel? And oh yeah, if anybody has a passenger-side notch-back tail light they want ot get rid of I'm your buyer!






Of all the cars in the lot, WHY MINE?!!

You can take the bumper off and use the bumper repair two part mix. That will fix up just fine...

You need to take it off anyway to see if the metal bumper underneath needs any tlc....

Looks like she just push the bumper against the metal bumper which is how it made that nice cut line...

So I sense some sarcass about a girl hitting your car?

I'll look when I get home. I have a tail, but I think it's a drivers side. If I have one I will PM you.

You guys are falling down. Can't believe nobody said "Yeah, that'll buff right out..."

Sorry about your car Justin. Good luck with the repairs.

snow here in Ohio.

That facia can be repaired with a flexible uretane body putty made by 3M. It's called easy sand and its a two part compound. Remove the facia then try to remold the facia into proper shape using a heat gun but only apply as much heat as necessary. Then rough up the cuts where they meet. GLue them together with plastic epoxy then apply easy sand mix and let harden. When dry block sand smooth. If you've done a good job you won't see any damage unless th facia was stretched beyond repair.

That's pretty ironic. looks like you got it fixed though. Why is it that fieros are like magnets to other cars slamming into them?
