if your ok with bending the truth a little, go to your insurance and claim you came out to the car being hit in a parking lot, and have no idea who did it, your deductable is most likely a lot cheaper then an OEM bumper cover, and the paint work needed.

The dealer will sell you the cover but its pricey, theres also the chance of getting a wrecked GT500 with rear end damage and salvaging it, or going with an aftermarket piece, but the easiest solution is saying you were hit in a parking lot.


2003 Redfire V6,
Show: Smoked everything, cobra front bumper, gt rear bumper, rear decklid and lower valence blackout with black mustang letters, 5% rear front 15%, black 98 Cobra rims front, 95 Cobra R rear black with chrome lip, black scoops and spoiler and exhaust tips

Go: CAI, True Duals with flowmaster super 44's, Bama Tune, full suspension (lowered, 8.8, 4.10s, UCA, LCA, springs, CC plates)

Off to the internet dealer of your choice you go.....the harder part is finding a body shop you can trust to do quality work.. They are few and far between, normally backlogged, not cheap.

Oh and, my condolences to your cousins family, Im sorry for their loss.... When is the funeral
