    I've got a cracked bumper cover on my accord, parking lot damage. Dealer
    wants mega-bucks to repair.

    Anyone have any experience with an aftermarket skin like:


    Fit? Quality? Other options?

    I'm thinking of taking the cover to a shop, having them spray it and
    installing it myself.

    Let me know if you think I'm crazy, or if it's a good idea.

    If there is a COlor on Parade franchise near you check with them. I've
    never used them but they claim to fix damaged bumpers but it has to be soon
    after the damage occurs.

    A crapshoot. You'll more than likely have to fiddle with it before it fits
    like an OEM one, if it ever does...

    Plastic may not be as forgiving as OEM to parking-lot thumps. It may crack
    more readily and sag more with time.

    Used OEM skin off car at wreckers.

    That will work just fine. They're supposed to spray them off the car

    My son had damage to his Accord. Not his fault. The other party's
    insurance paid, and they put an aftermarket bumper on. It was horrible. We
    would not accept the car. They in turn got an OEM bumper and we were
    satisfied. I would never take one of these aftermarket pieces of crap.

    My 2 cents.
