HELP!!!! FENDER BENDER

Well I guess this is one of those cautionary tales about not letting ANYONE drive your car. My brother backed my Camaro into a pole in a parking lot!!! Well needless to say, I'm going to need a new bumper cover and lower plastic valence. The body shop says they are going have to blend the paint into the rear quarter panels. I have not had luck with paint being blended into other panels that dont need work. I'm going to have them paint the new bumper cover and see how close it matches before letting them proceed with blending the quarters...

Any advice? the paint is CGM by the way

Is your insurance company paying for it? Or are you doing it out of pocket? I took mine to a dealer and they were able to match the paint perfectly.

That sucks! So sorry. My husband backed my Dodge Charger R/T into my uncles pole barn. I could have cried. But the dealership was able to fix it perfectly. Keeping my fingers crossed yours comes out the same way too.

Yep I was hit in the same area in a parking lot by some dick with a trailer. Took it to the dealer and has been waiting on the parts. Same ones you are needing. The bumper will be coming from California, and the lower valance will be out of Michigan. So im waiting on the parts to get my baby back. Good luck to ya.

i'm taking it to the shop that the dealer uses, so hopefully they'll be able to match it perfect. They said they've already done 3 other camaro body kits.

If the body shop is any good you'll be fine.
