    Thanks Fellas.

    Unfortunately i need a bumper now and i can't wait 1-2 months for an O.R. bumper.

    So i'm just going to eliminate the chrome and and get a color matched bumper if i can.


    Here it's getting towed to the body shop.

    LOL coolest tow truck driver.

    dude! this is the perfect time to get an OR bumper. I got mine after an accident too. Slapped it on and still had $$$ left over to pay of credit cards.

    It can't drive how it is? I say wait it out!!

    The Bumper is bent to shit and it's rubbing on the tire. So the bumper has to come off for sure. I can't ride around with out a bumper for 2 months with out turn signals and no plates. lol

    And the there is more damage that needs to be repaired. Such as:

    Grille surround (replacing)
    Head light and corner light
    The Right Front quarter panel needs to be repaired and repainted.
    There is more damage underneath.
    The Bumper itself needs to be replaced

    If it was just the bumper it would be no doubt an OR replacement. The bumper itself i think is only worth around $250. so that's all i would get back from the insurance. Cause i need them to fix everything else.

    Relentless or Elite

    Jerry said he would fab one up for me but he's really busy right now. I would have to wait 2 months.

    Maybe if Jerry lends me his old bumper (same year and model as mine) I can collect the $250 from insurance and save for 2 months :spy:
