Okay...my ex-boyfriend got my car into an accident...TWICE!

How can I fix these deep scratches? Should I Replace the entire bumper cover...and it doesn't stay completely on, on the right side. How can I fix that?

Thanks...any advice is greatly appreciated!!!

-Chris

P.S.-Does anyone know where I can buy a single replacement wheel cap/cover? See last picture...

It will cost a few hundred, because it will need repainting. It's important that you find a reputable body shop that will properly prep and match the paint. Ask friends for their experience with body and fender shops. The cheapest is usually the worst.

For the wheel cover, Toyota parts or Toyota parts online.

Ebay for a new hubcap, body shop should just be able to re-paint that, BTW stop talking to your ex, he is an ex for a reason and the damage he did to your car justifies why he is an ex.....jk shouldn't cost you too much to get that repainted

Simple "Fix"

I don't believe the problem is as bad as it looks.
You can probably get away with just re-snapping the locks on the fender/bumper clips in again. Just lift, and squeeze the two parts together and make the protruding part of the upper part enter into the crevice of the lower clip assembly and push them together till it clicks. (hopefully it will)

The Painting, however will cost you/him some $ :<(

Talking Thanks and a Message to Auxmike

Hey Everyone! Thanks for all the replies...Going to a body shop is obviously the answer, I just didn't know if it was fixable by myself...Will be doing that soon.

I am definitely done with my ex and he wont be paying for the repairs...asshole...but that's fine...I have the money.

And a message for auxmike...Really dude? You didn't know gay people exist?! Wow! It doesn't matter who I'm sleeping with, none of your business, this is Yaris World not "Are'nt you a GUY???" World...and YES gay people do drive cars, even YARIS'S!...Imagine that!

Thanks Again Everyone for Your Help!

By the way...I posted a thread a while back about "customizing" my car...I now have chrome door handles and one strip of chrome (on each side), near the bottom of my doors! Will be getting my rims soon! Will be posting pics of the chrome soon!

Thanks! -Chris
