A used SS bumper perhaps? Those should be fairly innexpensive.

Refurb SS bumper, really cheap on ebay... I've seen a few around and you can't tell unless they tell you.

I know how you feel. My first blemish was hard to deal with but always remember, it can be fixed and sometimes something better comes out of it. I agree with many others it's ZL1 bumper time Take care of your girl Adam

Well if it makes you feel any better, I was parking my car (just like I do everyday) and for some reason I drove too far up to the curb and actually hit it. I put a nice little scratch on my bumper. Now I've lived in my apartment complex for going on 4 years and this has never happened with any other car I've owned...even when I lived elsewhere. But it happened because I was careless. I was gonna fix it. But instead I decided to let it remain there to remind me to never make the same mistake again. It's good to have reminders. So I bet from now on Adam will always make sure to move all objects far away from the vehicle before lowering it.

Side note, it was mentioned before...but I think he should issue a public apology to you on this board. After all the roasting and bashing and name-calling people do on here when they find dents and dings on their car. I think it's only proper for him to fess up and take a good roast...

I got keyed at two weeks. The first cut is the deepest. At least it's out of sight.

I think you should start doing the work from now on, he's too much of a girly man for stuff like this. I hope he didn't brake his nails in the process. J/k lol

See it would be different if I did it to my car lol. But he did it.. I'm not mad anymore, it's just a bumper. I can get it fixed for now and changed in the future. Yes he will!

I guess he kinda avoided C5 last night at work lol. He'll be on eventually to take the roasting lol. I know he feels really bad though and I keep reassuring him it's okay and we'll get it fixed lol.

She didn't quite explain it right. I had pulled the jack stands out and began to lower the jack...I have an air jack so it raises and lowers the car in 2-3 seconds. Well the jack stand wasn't pulled out far enough and caught the front fascia when the car was coming down.

Dude, that didn't sound like a public apology to me...hahaha!! Anyway, it takes small mistakes to keep people from making bigger mistakes. And you can take it as a learned lesson. I know I've made some silly mistakes on other cars...enough of them to know exactly what NOT to do with my SS.
