My bumper was pushed in ( basically bent ). It is not torn or cracked.  Looks to me like it might be straightened. Has anyone had this done by anyone who has done a super job? Anyone in or around New England? Please let me know. Thanks. Norm Vandal.

I recently sent my front bumper out to a local body shop in California. My bumper was backed into which cause a large drip in the metal, plus it had various dings and scratches. I found an "old school" body man that still uses a English Wheel roller to hand craft metal parts. He did a great job rolling out the creases and dings. We then sent the bumper out for polishing and I remember paying around $180 USD. You may note original bumpers have a mat finish.

Hello,

Can you get me the name and phone number of the shop? I assume I could send mine out to them.

thanks for your reply,

Gary is the owner. Best time to catch him 6~3 PM during the week. Leave a message if he doesn't answer. Sometimes it's too noisy to hear the phone.
