After waiting 90 days I polished/waxed the newly painted panels after the accident. I used a wildberry bumper that as completely stripped and any stress fractures were repaired. It turned out great and the shop did a good job on matching. Both the bumper and the rear quarter panels were painted.

    Thanks guys. I will put some other pics up when I get a chance. I wanted to show how the repair turned out after the idiot Honda Element driver put a hole in the bumper.

    Thanks for the nice comments, guys. I added another pic. I had planned to take it out for some photos with nice backgrounds but it blew another head gasket. Damn DSM.

    Thanks, Eclipse'd. The two gaskets that went were MLS. Turns out the issue was the head. A machining issue created a 0.006" dip in the middle so it wasn't flat. You could see where the impression from the fire ring was light, indicating uneven pressure.

    A new head is being done and this time I will be using a Fel-Pro PermaTorque gasket.
