so i just got in a fender bender...or a bumper f[:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)]er. whatever. coming home, coincidentally had a buddy from rotc who also lives 2 floors up from me, right behind me. well i tried to cut thru a parking lot to avoid sitting at a light to make a right turn. do it all the time at this particular spot a block from the apt. well i wasn't paying attention, pulled in one lot too early, actually into the wendy's parking lot, the wrong way. well it's connected to the little parking lot which empties onto the road i wanted to turn on, but i realized i wasn't gonna make it thru this tiny little turn into the lot because...again...going the wrong way in the wendy's parking lot. so throw it in reverse. BAM. didn't bother looking. and coleman was behind me doing the exact thing i was. so yeah, i didn't look. but neither of us should've been there. which a lady coming throught he drive thru pointed out to us, that we probably don't want to call the cops because we were both in the wrong and though i backed into him...neither of us should've been there. sooo yeah.

my rear bumpers is screwed. small dent/fold in the bottom of the quarterpanel. the hatch is fine fortunately. went to my favorite body shop, lol, the one that did all my paint work for me before. she quoted me nearly $1300. that's with a $400 bumper, lol. but still, even picking up an svt bumper somewhere, it's not going to save me a whole lot. [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)]*!!!!

fortunately, all it did was jack up his front bumper on his oldesmobile, which he is planning to replace with a body kit anyways, lol. so i'm just paying for my damage out of pocket. and gotta get it fixed before i go home end of this month too. yay.

so there goes a grand. that i don't have. donations? lmao

yeah, that's what i say..."well i wanted an svt bumper...but not for this reason...and not with my finances the way they are right now..." but at least on the bright side, i should see my $900 from rotc for book money sometime this month or next...but unfortunately, instead of paying off a large portion of my credit card...that's just going to be covering most of this expense. but i've got an application for a job here at the apt, the guy i hit actually works here, along with us being in rotc together, thank god it was someone i know, but anyways, rent is free if you work so many hours, hopefully i can get a job here, lol.

yeah, painted and installed for cheap, lol. i wish. oh well, i'm hoping mike gets back to me and tells me he can save me a little buy getting me an svt bumper and painting it, but i highly doubt it. there's some things even he can't save us much on. and there was one on ebay for $99+90 shipping, with a $150 buy it now, but someone else bid on it, and i got the bidding up to $140 before i said screw it. waiting to hear back from a guy here on the forums on one for $200+shipping.

Sucks, but atleast you only have to fix your car and not your friends car too....and you are getting an SVT bumper. See what Mike from Hillbish can get you one for.

jeremy, sent you a pm. eric, i'm waiting for a response from mike, though again, i highly doubt he can get it for a good price for me, guess it depends on what kind of price he can paint it for. and i've got red01focus on standy, probably about $260 shipped, give or take a bit, of course that's a red bumper so it'll need paint.

the body shop quoted just under $1300...that includes a $400 bumper, fixing the quarter panel, and paint for the bumper and blending the quarterpanel to the hatch.

lol, day trip to georgia for people to help put on a bumper? lmao. seriously...need to look at that quote again and see how much it'd save me to put on the bumper myself. worse comes to worse, they paint it and i get it installed...eh. i really wanna get roush skirts too right now. but DEFINITELY no money, lol.

agreed on all accounts. i figure the sap diffuser would look much better on my car for some reason, but just getting what i can get. i can replace that down the road somewhere.

So steve, I don't know if it'll help you out any, but I just priced out an SVT rear bumper and diffuser...$301 for the bumper and $37 for the diffuser. Thats my employee cost on it. I don't know if it would be worth trying to save the money though as it would still have to be shipped to you.

thanks for that eric. that's 340 not including paint i'm assuming? so top option is still red01focus. jeremy called earlier while i was in class, i need to call him back in a few.

agreed on both accounts. that small bit on the quarterpanel is pretty much half the price of repairs. and as jeremy pointed out on the phone, were the car not lowered nearly 2 inches, chances are the quarterpanel may have been fine. lol. oh well.

Steve, with as slow as we are right now and with as minor damage you have, i'm sure we could have it done in 2-3 days. I know we could get the body work done in a day and possibly painted. If you wanna try bringing it to us, let me know so i can get parts ordered. Of course, if we do it, it may cost just as much or a lil less then your other body shop.
