    Default Rear Bumper Repair GSi, Front Bumper soon!

    G'day Lads.

    Just thought i'd show off a before and after picture of my rear bumper after I reversed into a low rock at uni....

    Had a local mobile repairman come around today and repair the gashes and crack. Couldn't believe what a clean job he did. He also repaired and sprayed my damaged VXR spoiler FOR FREE!

    before:



    After:





    All Up it was $300 cash. So happy the car is on its way to the way it should look.

    I'll update this thread once I receive my new front bumper from Autovaux (after the boss drove it into a concrete bollard )

    Yet to fit it as it was damaged on the way over. Still got the GSi lip on the boot.

    The VXR spoiler had quite a big crack running from the top left corner and spider webbed all the way down to about 1cm before the bottom middle edge. I was surprised it could be repaired in such a sturdy way.

    Have the same thing on my front bumper which is also a bit deformed out there. But to get rid of this I think i need to change whole bumper. Nah... let's say I don't perceive it

    Shipping is being looked into at autovaux. Was rough quoted about 600 pound to get it across. Still ends up being cheaper than buying it from Holden.
