Front bumper replacement

Let my girl drive my car and she hit a concrete barrier and scratched the whole bumper up. Anyone know how much it's gonna cost to replace the bumper as far as labor goes?

Wow a lot of people messing up there front bumpers on here lately. Strange. Check ebay for a replacement front bumper. Or newtakeoff.com. Bunch of sites out there. Could also get an aftermarket bumper or GT or GT500 or so many options.

Install from a shop shouldn't cost too much though. Just give some local shops a cost and see what they charge for labor.

If you can find a prepainted bumper I'd suggest you do the work yourself. It's really easy to remove and replace. You'll save some money.

Here's a link to a build thread I did awhile back. It's got the details to removing your bumper as well. Best of luck to ya and post pics when you do it.

Wow! That's awesome. Great how too that should help a lot! I'm considering trying to do it by myself, just not sure I can do it without messing something up. But I guess I'll never know if I don't try! I'll get pictures of the damage up soon. Then you guys can tell me whether I should replace the whole bumper or go another route

Thanks! You shouldn't have any trouble. You really grow an appreciation for your machine when you get hands on with your projects. Everything I've done to my mustang, I've done myself. You'll never know your limitations until you booger something up! You just gotta go for it!

Very true! I'm hoping I won't need a new bumper though I wanted to put CAI in this month and make that my first project. I'll post pictures in a couple hours though!

Here's an idea what you'll be paying for a new bumper. http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item...d=230663675597
Btw, what color is your car?

That's not a bad price! I won't mind paying for the bumper if the project is simple enough to do myself! It was the cost of labor I was worried about.

Aww man, that's not bad at all! I wouldn't replace the bumper for that. That's just gonna need to be repainted. They won't need to remove the bumper for that. I'd say about $150 - $250 to repair.
