Before and after
A lot of people complain about how “cheaply” cars are made these days … and their may be some merit to that argument. But as someone who does body work on both old iron and new, I can tell you that simple bumper repairs are a lot easier on new cars.
Take this bumper from a Hyundai. The owner owner provided the part and just wanted us to paint it. He is going to install it himself. A few clips, a couple smacks with the hand and dozen screws and the bumper will be on the car. Old Detroit iron … I wish it were as easy.
Here are the before and after shots. The first picture is the bumper as I received it, the second as I gave it back.
