Rear bumper cover and valance

I must've taken the transmission out of reverse and released the parking brake when I sync'd the new tires/wheels. I don't remember doing it. Anyway, the car must've rolled back. When I opened the garage door, it got stuck about 18" from the floor. I gauged the rear bumper cover and the valance. Does anybody know if the fender cover can be repaired with filler and re-painted? Not too worried about the valance since I was thinking about getting one from AM anyways. Thanks.

Took the car to the local body shop. The guy used some touch-up paint on the bumper cover. I know it's there but I gotta look for it. Best of all he wouldn't accept any money! The valance he said there's nothing he can do. Rather than charging close to $500, to repaid the fender and get a new valance, he said order it on line and do it myself after surgery. I love this town!

Glad to hear it's minor and that you won't notice it unless you look for it. I'd say a GT500 valance is coming

Thanks all! I got scared it was going to a lot of money. I probably let them repair and repaint the bumper cover and install the valance while I recoup.

Wow, an honest shop for a change.
