hgeez:

If anybody is curious as to why I got the MT Coupe that no one else in the family can drive.

Brian - that's your grille and hood - the ones I got from you back in Dec 2012.

The sedan was able to be driven back and is now parked in one of our local body shop yards. The bumper was removed, needed to cut one of the fender liner splash guards. I haven't had a chance to visit the yard after work yet. Know for sure the bumper and its cover is shot, was told a headlight needs replacement, and need a liner. Await police report...

Ouch! Hope for a speedy fix. At first I thought you'd caught the bumper on a parking stop.
edit; beat me to it Alan!

Hey all - thanks for your concerns!

Alan - wouldn't you know, I get a bumper signal light from you, then this happens!

I just got in the innards for the tail light bulb housings from Ari so the side brake light can start working and shut off that brake light idiot indicator which comes on intermittently....

Accident? Yes. A significant family member drove the car into Manhattan and was parking on Riverside Drive in the 80's to take the subway down to a meeting. As this family member was backing into a parking spot, unbeknownst to the family member, a commercial vehicle (a small van) was making a U-turn to maneuver into a parking spot near where the sedan was making the attempt at parking. A garbage truck was in the way and instead of this guy just stopping to wait he tried to squeeze through, clipped the bumper from behind and the side as the sedan was backing in to the spot....

No way did I imagine that my family member would be driving into Manhattan when a bus stop in town takes a ride right into Port Authority and then the meeting would be a nice walk further downtown in great weather. And this would have been after the morning rush hour.

Stay tuned.

Sorry to hear. My bumper got ripped off the GS in like 07-08 when a box truck w/ lift snagged the right corner & popped the clips.GL

Default Everything is alright with the world....

At least in my little corner of the universe...

Got the sedan back yesterday afternoon.



Would not suggest paying only $87 for an after-market bumper cover like I did. I refused to bite the bullet to buy another $300 bumper cover from Acura that fits 100% after so many times of sedan resurrection. If you are concerned about doing it right and not worried about someone else ruining the car after it's looking so good then pay the premium to get it to fit right. In the meanwhile - this is good enough for me. Also, the after-market fender liners I bought are cheap but also do not fit as good as an $80 Acura liner.
