Last summer an acquaintance of mine had a little accident in his V70R and insurance paid for all new OE body parts and I acquired his bumper. (Kristian wound up with his jewels and are on his black R now).
1 week before Carlisle I had the idea i would get the front end done...that never happened so I showed up with a color coat on the hood (un-blended) and a primered bumper..
I am aware of the other dents in the hood...I was not making this a show car and had to stop somewhere!
Here's how it went:
Started with this:
and this.. I pounded from behind to get to this point :
An old pic when I first bought it showing damage:
1 week before Carlisle:
6 days before Carlisle i decided to go through with the R bumper and broke the bolts..spent a couple hours dealing with that (new bosses tacked on the brackets)..Still have stock bumper..needs primed and painted if anyone wants it PM me
Sunday before Carlisle:
Thursday: color on hood..no clear or blending...this is how I ended up driving to PA
Got back from Carlisle had some beer and got back to business...Clear on hood...bumper off for paint
All Painted..no wet sanding or buffing yet:
Hood sanded to 2000g..blended.
Hood buffed...Bumper at 2000g:
As it sits tonight:
Close up of hood repair:
