    On your old bumper, if the old repairs are holding up, II would just repair that, especially if it’s oem. Nothing wrong repairing a previously repaired part if it can be repaired again. Of course, a lot of it depends on exactly where the cracks are all at. That missing chunk, that’s easy to fab up some abs, epoxy it on reinforced with fiberglass, then the rest is body work and paint. Trickyest part would be the fog light mount, but if you have the pieces still on the foglight, that’s a piece of cake. Body shop will just say replace the whole thing, but since I could easily fix that, yeah, I’d do it myself, for myself.

    Thnx Snotty, yeah its OEM. Good friend that went in on the 71 2002 is pretty decent at body work hadn't seen the bumper yet but was all about fixing it.

    Yes, it’s not bad fixing it, if you know how to. Just a matter of how soon do you need it done, and having the time to do the repairs. That’s what’s nice about having multiple cars, I just juggle them around. Hell, my green wagon, I got it repainted quite a while ago, the painting is done, car has been in a storage warehouse out in NJ waiting for me to put it all back together. Been over a year. Soon! I will be getting it back together soon…. Lol.

    New bumper came in $799. plus tax. Friend thinks we can save the old bumper. So will give that a shot also.
    I'll have them paint both at the same time. Can't have too many bumpers.

    So far new bumper and new Slimmbones lip I'm at $1100. plus paint.
    Luckily I know someone that paints at his home and has a real paint both in his pole barn.

    After five years of sitting on a shelf I had my Euro Tails coded and installed.
    Thanks to Paul, blackknight530i @ Fixels for coding my Euro Tails.
    Everything works as it should.

    Hi jp5!

    Want to sell me your facelift red top CELIS outers ?!

    A little hard to tell from your pic, but did you go with Amber or Clear Tops?!

    I want an all red rear lamps cluster, so will likely spray the white of the reverse lights too, but not before I get a photoshop image done first to see if it does look as good as what's in my brain cell currently!

    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.87)][/COLOR]

    Cheers, Dennis!
