its finally fixed!!

so about a year ago my M bumper got cracked leaving a girls house (dropped down onto the curb because it was such a tight squeeze) so anyway i just did my best to ignore it until i broke down and said i'll get it fixed. this is what it looked like (just to the right of the center grille)



so while my school (pennsylvania college of technology) was fixing it and had paint mixed up i said hey they might as well spray my kidney grilles silver just for kicks (i can always paint em black again if i dont like it) my foglights were also fallin apart so i ordered new ones to add to the facelift. while it was under construction for weeks i had to drive it like this... UGLY!!



after all that i ordered a new center grille and this company fucked up the order. so i ordered another from someone else and i finally got to put it all on yesterday and this is what it looks like now. i like it but im not sure if i wanna keep the kidney grilles silver or make em black again (like in the first pic) im open to opinions








sorry some of the pics were taken with a shitty older camera and they may come up HUGE when i post this

Looks great. I'd go with the black grille after seeing how Montizzle's look.

I think I might like the black better, but the silver looks pretty good.

thanks everybody for your compliments and opinions on the grilles. i think im gonna keep em silver for a while and if i cant stand it later then ill make em black again, the silver is growing on me tho!

DUDESKY- the collision dept. at my school fixed it, they did what they referred to as plastic welding, if you look at it from the back you can see they used sheets that are similar to fiberglass but a bigger grain, they put that on the back with a bunch of other "goop" and melt it together. then they fill it and sand it on the front side. i must say im impressed with the fix and since i was a student it only cost me 30 bucks to have it repaired and to paint the bumper and grilles
