    Long story short...I pulled up close with the garage door shut to unload a full pallet of sod on one side of the house...and didn't realize until hours later when shopping at a store! I thought someone scraped me in a parking lot until I realized what happened...there are only 2 scrapes on the garage door. It was fun explaining it to my wife! The pics don't do it justice...it actually looks worse in person.

    Anyway...now what should I do...

    Valance to cover it up??


    New front bumper from All Pro or Relentless Fab??
    :D Also, can someone please tell me how to make my pics bigger when they are displayed??

    Ouch, that makes my brain hurt! Sorry to see that...

    I might look into just getting it sanded and resprayed, or you could snad it down and spray it rattle-can black like others have done. A Relentless bumper WOULD be really nice, but WAY more expensive than rattle-can.

    A relentless bumper would look bad ass or you could sand down the lower part and paint it black.

    Sign up for photobucket or some other hosting site for larger pics

    I used to back into my damned trash cans all the time but with my backup camera in the new Taco I don't do that any more. If I were you I'd fix the garage and tell the wife someone nailed in the parking lot :)

    paint the bottom black or put on black vinyl and get an avid bar. It'll cover up the rest and keep you from making the same mistake

    Trust me, lying to the wife is sometimes a much better plan than telling the whole truth. When you do as many stupid things as I do you need to stretch the truth now and then.

    Can't quite tell, but if there are gouges in the plastic, sanding and painting, or vinyl covering will not look so good. Not sure if you can Bondo a flexible plastic piece,,, suspect not, but you'll need someone with more knowledge than I for that.

    If it is gouged, might try finding a used bumper cover on Craigslist/Ebay and have it painted to match (if necessary).

    Lurkin, its definitely gouged fairly deep!! I can't believe the garage doesn't look worse...but it was the bottom metal trim on the garage that did the scraping!
