Front Bumper repair help

Post by smoggyuk » Sun Feb 18, 2018 2:07 pm

This happened around 2 weeks ago, left my car in a car park above town only to come back with a hole in the front bumper.
Only had the car 3 weeks as well :( just wondering what advice you can give me about a repair.

Checked under the bumper, crash bar looks in tact which is a positive. But the headlight mounts are shot on both the headlight and
the plastic mounting plate that it sits on.

Also, not sure if it's common but i hadn't noticed it before but a panel gap has appeared on the wing between the bumper.
Welds are fine which is even more confusing.

Looks like it’s all out of alignment

Depending on how you want to fix it really it’s a new headlight and a new bumper
