The previous owner of this car had hauled some stuff in the back and used the back bumper as a sliding rack or something...who knows what it was used for. Needless to say, it looked pretty bad.

Nice fix

Nice fix for your particular problem. Creative at least, makes the car more 'yours'!

I'm pretty sure that's what did the rear bumper on mine in the same area. :twisted: You'll probably hear it on the news if I ever catch one doing that again. :x "Car vandal found hanging from tree by gonads in Walmart parking lot!"
