whats the best approach to fix this.

some glrl ( pretty hot) hit me from behind and did this to my car. she begged me not to call the police so i didnt and said she would pay for the damage her self. so i got an estimate and it was about 500$ to repair. i felt bad asking her to give me that much, idk y maybe cuase she was hot , so i siad give me 300$ and we'll call it even. so she did but i spent the money on other stuff . But now i want to fix the damage my self, what should i do??

wtf dude you can't really fix body damage yourself. If it's just the rear bumper, buy a new one (preferably with a body kit thumbsup )

That doesnt look like it would coset $500 dollars to fix to me, but it doesnt look like something you could fix yourself.

in any accident you should report it and get their infor through insurance. IT'S THE LAW. i don't care if she was the sexiest woman on earth...you have to let insurance take care of it.

but as of now there are many people who seel their stock bumpers in good condition for $100. just be patient and search and you don't need to worry about the hassles of painting and such. thumbsup thumbsup thumbsup
