the car is kinda flimsy...

i was backing out of my friends driveway today, and the car has the most terrible backup lights i've ever experienced...

well anywho, long story short, i rolled backwards with the clutch pressed in, about half a mile per hour, hit a wooden fence, and tore the plastic bumper cover thingy completely off the car :/

Re: the car is kinda flimsy...

Well, get got it back on, lots of pushing, shoving, prying, snapping.

It's reattached firmly, as before, and we used some two part apoxy resin to re-make the loops that the bolts go through.

It's not as pretty as it once was, but my girlfriend's uncle has a body shop and he's going to fix the paint and make sure it's not gonna fall off again :/

Careless Driving

I mean no hard feelings for what I post on this website. Anything I type/write/post/say on this forum is only that of general debate and discussion. I am not biased toward anyone or anything. I am neutral in everything I do on this website. Only those facts that are presented to me sway my thought process and siding of each discussion topic that I post about.
