Think this will buff out?

Got rear-ended tonight on the way home from work. Shit. Ah well, guess I'm getting a new bumper...

Looks like mostly deep scratched than anything else....Sorry to hear about that though. Still, accidents happen I guess!

lol...doesn't show the tail-light that needs to be replaced(just a corner of the lens is gone, that's why i didn't bother with a big pic of it on here), and the bottom of it is ripped a bit...plus the bumper springs were probably collapsed, so there's likely a lot of damage underneath...

His car was ****ed. 2005 Civic SI......bumper, done for. Hood, bent back. Drivers side fender, pushed back. Drivers side headlight, broken right off the brackets. Radiator and AC Condensor, pushed in.....who knows what else.

Did the car have a spike at the front? What's that hole from? lol

Does insurance cover that/are you involving it?

From his radiator support bracket most likely...he kinda got me at an angle, he switched lanes quickly before he hit me...

Go to an expensive shop and get a quote, get the money from his insurance and repaint it yourself, pretty easy if you have the equipment, or take it to a shop were friends work and get it done real cheap and pocket the rest for your trouble. haha

Thats how my buddy paided for his whole turbo setup. 5600 dollars.

Its good to have guys in the auto body bussiness
