Hey guys, my brother was driving my car out of the driveway and because it is steep he smacked the road hard, and the front bumper is not sitting right. I'm wondering if this has happened to anyone and what they had to do to fix it.

I've pulled it down in the photo to show what's been broken from the hit it doesn't actually sit like that fortunately..

Loving my Christmas luck

It's probably popped out of it's carrier. Just needs to be reagligned and reseated. Account for an hour of your time if you want to take the bumper off and slide it back on.

I didn't use a DIY, but try this. It's all pretty straight forward and self-explainitory one you start pulling things apart. It's just time consuming trying to get it all lined up perfectly!

I reckon! Hervey bay is cut-off atm, no way in/out. So everyone is freaking out getting fuel and supermarkets are running low on supplies....
Hopefully the Mary River will lower soon, Maryborough is still under (our only way out) and Gympie is not looking good...
Hope all our members are well and safe.

Hey John

Its great that you care!

I got out of Gympie ok but had to leave the office today at 1:00. We are on the corner of George and Turbot streets and they expect George to go under tonight.

I've got a property in Ipswich that I expect to wash away unfortunately.

And after all this is all my fault!

My son, Noah, was born on 28 October. It hasn't bloody stopped raining since!

Cheers

Tim.
