By bumper, I assume you mean bumper cover. If you hit hard enough to do that much damage to the cover, there are pretty good odds you have damage to the structure you aren't seeing. You will definitely want to have it checked.

See my owner's journal towards the end, but I had a minor incident with no damage to the cover other than being knocked off and one little gouge. Underneath though the fender supports and the bumper bar were bent.

Check your hood lines for weird gaps. That's how I first noticed further damage to mine.

Glad you are OK!

Yes, I am ok. And, I meant bumper cover. Also, that's a good idea to check the hood lines. I'll be sure to do that this evening and schedule to have it inspected.

Today I recorded the following video of my third Red Intake Manifold Cover Prototype . I've decided to polish it first...if the Devcon I used to fill the gaps doesn't look good after I polish it, I'll have it painted. It will serve as my temp until I complete my final version. Afterwards I plan on selling it if anyone is interested.

The following pics in the link above are pre Devcon but illustrate the fitment of this third prototype. The temporary top hardware will change to a countersunk hex head bolt.

Today I finished Sanding my custom red intake manifold cover prototype to 2000 grit and then proceeded to polish it with Flitz metal polish to get an idea what it will look like when fully polished.

I still need to finish polishing it using white rouge and a buffing wheel... Should really be blinging soon!

Installed an invidia catless unresonated FP and really like it. Compliments my Greddy Revolution RS catback nicely

Found out the Subaru expert shop that did my JDM shifter install forgot to re-attach the wires to the 12 v plug in the well behind the shifter. Luckily I was able to just pull up the ebrake boot and reach in and fix.

Today I finished polishing and installed my custom '17 Red Intake Manifold Cover prototype! It is (for) now complete!

I'm pretty happy with the results... looks so good polished! Adds another layer of detail to my engine bay.

The fit & finish of the cover appear to be factory/OEM quality. Nice job!

Looks fantastic! Did you have to fabricate a mount for it?

btw, how did you get your throttle body so shiny?

Thanks for the comp! The rear mounts are built into my design... the front of the cover shares the same mounting point as the MAP sensor.

I buffed out the throttle body as it lay...I didn't bother to remove it. I just taped off around it and used towels elsewhere to protect against the sling. Used small buffing wheels on a high speed drill and a Dremel with buffing wheels for the tight areas. Used rouge and Blue Magic to cut and buff... I didn't use sandpaper...I just kept at it until the texture wore down.
