    [PICS] Front bumper damage: Need affordable smash repair in Sydney to fix.

    Long story short: As I was reversing out of the car park while I was eating, I didn't realise that there was a concrete pole on my blind spot. As a rookie p plater, I smacked it into the concrete pole, then realised that I did considerable damage to the right portion of my front bumper.

    Note: It didn't push the head lights in.

    Here are some photos:

    Questions:

    1. Would I have to replace the whole front bumper as well as the side fender?
    2. Roughly how much would it cost?
    3. Any areas in Sydney that I could fix it for an affordable/cheap price?

    Cheers.

    It doesnt look too bad man. You can probs fix it at a panel beater but im not too sure about the cost. I rkn itll be easier to replace bumper and fender. You can probs get them both for about $200 if you look in the parts for sale section.

    Thanks for the reply man. Yeah that's what I've been doing and I'm pretty sure I've found both for around $170. I just need to find a place in Sydney that'll put it together for a decent price.

    bumper doesnt look too badly damaged at all, i wouldn't be too fussed about it - a screw and clips probably came out where its connected to the splash guard

    there's a member on the forums called 'dorikin' who's parting out a black preface civic - ask him if he has the quater panel and front bumper, i'm sure he'll give it to you for cheap. I bought a new radiator mount and interior quater panel for $30 from him, so relatively cheap

    It's a honda, so it's probably the easiest car you will take apart and put back together, if you're not sure just google a DIY

    I wish you lick,

    Regards,

    The bumper looks like you can reuse, some of the scratches should come out with polish. Just grab a new guard.

    Sounds good! I'll probably get the guard by tomorrow. It's a cypress green colour:





    Worth it? Scratches here and there. Or should I look for a different one?

    I reckon just search wreckers for parts the same colour as your car... I picked up a new rear bar for my ED6 today from Pick n Payless for $75
