Man before you know it I'm gonna need a whole paint job:(

I drive a Cavalier. I could give a fvck about my paint. I used to ram stuff all the time. The bumper shows it. Just this weekend I did some pretty serious offroading with it(for a car at least) to go shooting.

:cwm17: Kevox, first step: find a mirror....second step: stand directly in front of it....third step: stare directly into the mirror...fourth step: THINK (if it starts to hurt, stop) :)

That's why you always keep your car clean...If the dust/dirt was not too bad (thick or gritty) then you should be able to buff it up...

Maybe I missed something...but...Was this car in an accident of some type, is the bumper/hood dented, or is the bumper just not put on right? The front end does not look right to me...

Stay far away from maaco paint jobs...just thought I say it again...

Well it's not like their finger painting made any permanent marks on the car - it is completely off now...just that I didn't understand why anyone would key a car and then draw a kitten beside it...turns out, as my dad pointed out to me logically, that it was my adopted 9year old female sibling that would've done that kitten...

About the front end not looking right, based on this pic? http://s48.photobucket.com/albums/f205/kevox/?action=view¤t=Talonfront.jpg

If it's not on that pic then it's possible that whatever other pic u were looking at didn't have the hood all the way down. Because I later found out that I had been driving around with the hood not completely shut for several days LOL, I didn't know it was like a door and could not "shut" all the way. I just hate dropping it from 8"+ just to close it all the way - so loud and unhealthy sounding:cwm17:
The front right of the bumper (looking at it straight on) does have a dent that was nicely painted over. Maybe that's what you were looking at. I donno but it doesn't bother me as much as the many paint scuffs people have accumulated on my car :cwm15:

That pic does show it, didn't look at the others again...that gap just looked a little large, while the hood appeared shut...

Ya in that pic the hood is DEFINITELY shut; now when the hood isn't quite shut I can easily tell cause it sticks up like enough to slide your whole hand underneath it lol.
