What's funny is one of these businesses (Eagle River Automotive) has done some sort of work on 4 of my vehicles frequently since I've been in Eagle River in Jan 09.

Boondock's owner was a crotchety old man who basically told me that nobody would drive all the way to Eagle River just because they saw his logo on my shirts. Not to mention he pretty much said that people who play softball don't give a **** about hunting/fishing/guns....

Yeaahhhh....

No idea. I just went to one of the import shops and they handed me two of the bolts for free.

I have an OE Subaru cam cap bolt in the original parts bag. If you are interested and want to see if it's the right one PM me. Nevermind.

WGMG:
When your forced to hit a snow bank because someone pulls out in front of you.
They continue driving while I have to first get my car unstuck, then check it to find the month old bumper is now cracked.



Anyone know a fairly easy fix for this? I know it wont look perfect, I just want to add some strength back to it. (the crack doesn't go much further past the picture).

My eyes are bleeding!!!

But honestly, anyone ever fix it? I've read about multiple ways, including melting/bonding the plastic back together. Using a special adhessive. As well as the standard bondo/repair kits. All of which usually require a sanding, painting (with touch up paint), and a clear coat.

I just don't want a floppy bottom bumper.
