    image.jpeg Just got my car and learned my lesson on how low the front end truly is. Is there any easy fix for this? I know it will probably happen again eventually but I am just looking into my options. Recommendations on a front guard for this and how hard to install.

    practice, practice, practice...painting that is. try and find some plastic bumper parts and practice sanding, filling, painting, etc. until you feel you can do your own touch up on areas like this. It's bound to happen again and why fret over it or pay $$$$'s for a body shop to do it. I kept dropping my Connie (Concours Motorcycle) and cracking the faring that I bought a plastic welder and got pretty good at repairing it. You could look at the outside and it looked just like new but on the inside yuck, weld filler all over the place. Plastic bumpers take a special paint that won't crack when the plastic bends. Not all bumpers are made of the same plastic so do some research.

    Cheers.

    Good luck with repair. Back into every spot you come across - it's safer and you never have to worry about this.

    Def when pulling into low area and heads of driveways at stores and peoples home, going in at a angle def helps. Splitter protectors are a good investment. Make sure you get the Mopar touch up paint that includes the clear coat. It is a 3/5 step process snd is about $15 available through any dealer

    hey unless it's a museum piece, drive it like it's stolen and forget a few minor scratches here or there... drive it and enjoy!! if you were married to Sophia Loren would you park or drive?? Sophia is sexier with a run in her nylons...
