Man that sucks. Did you get to talk to the driver at all? I have a dent in my rear bumper that looked like it was from a trailer hitch or something. A lot of truck drivers don't know how to drive/park around here so I just started parking away from everybody.

That's a good idea. I got a pic of his insurance and license. Iíve backed into someone in a truck myself. You canít see squat of people park to close. Itís no excuse but between me parking too close and not having a steel bumper Iíll likely just let it go. Not near as much damage would have happened if I hadnít removed the inner bumper. The front bummer is beat to shit already anyways lol Most of it will likely pop out with a heat gun. Time to look for a crashed car in silver...

Well at least he gave you that information. And yeah thatís exactly what Iím going to do when I get some time. Seems like it would be easy to just heat it up and push it back into place, especially since itís the rear bumper. Been here almost a year and still donít know how to post pictures...lmao. Itís not too bad though didnít take off any paint.

I lost a bit of paint but it was a mess to begin with. This might just be the excuse to get another one. Maybe Iíll just fix it myself over the winter. The rest of the car is in great shape. Iíll to some protection film this time for sure.

Man this looks awesome! Well done! Iíve always had a soft spot for Rays and Volk bronze wheels. Looks awesome with your white car. Any issues with rubbing?

Did you see it happen?! That would be even worse. I swear the massive size of trucks and SUVs is outrageous. Here in Texas thatís about 95% of the population
