Don't think the saving is enough to warrant the
aggravation of removing the front fascia of a vehicle,
with no experience

The body shop needs the car to match the paint color

you need a repair manual, Haynes or Chilton, there are too many places to explain here in this format, if you can not find these book at your local parts store, then try your local library, then sometimes even have the dealer shop manuals for your use, hope this helps

How to remove front bumper?

I have recently replaced the front bumper on my 2005 Aveo, after hitting a deer. The good thing to know, is directly connected to the bumper, there is NO sensor to worry about tripping the airbags. There are what seems like a million Teflon screws, that must come out to remove, and replace the bumper. The turn signals, and fog lights(if equipped) must come out first. All electrical connections, like the headlights, turn signals, and fog lights, must be disconnected, or you can't access the bolts, and screws near them. It's actually very easy to remove and install the bumper after the electrical connections are dealt with. Do not worry about the plastic clips located under the hood for removal. They are cheap and easy to replace. Here are some pics that might help you.

What is a "left closing plate" and is it something I could replace myself?

If you got an itemized bill, check to see how much they are charging you for the replacement of the closing plate.
From experience, the labor for the paint of a bumper is what costs most.
When a bumper is replaced, in order to have the front end match the new paint on the new bumper, they have to blend the hood and fender covers, or you will notice the difference in paint color with the bumper.
Best is to ask body shop to explain the estimate in more detail. I also recommend that you have your auto insurance company pay for the repair, minus your deductible. This is why you have insurance.

How much to repaint the damaged paint about 4 inches long on the front bumper of a 2001 audi tt

That would depend on the labor rates in your local area. Also how the work is done. From just painting and blending clear in a small area and to removing the bumper cover and clear the whole cover.

Want to replace bumper and apron on 99 S10

· It's an easy one to do. You can chose a bumper that you can paint or choose a chrome one that I have in the picture then it saves you from painting. The bumper valance is a Street Scene brand that is painted to match the rest of the body. The valance comes in a black color out of the box which you may put on the truck without painting., there are other more aggressive looking ones out there however I select the one pictured.. Since I have a 4x4, I removed the front tow hooks so the valance can fit and connected new fog lights using the existing factory switch. _732.jpg

Ok, i have a 2005 chevy aveo and i ould like to

NOW. These cars are notorious for timing belts snapping and GM has advised to replace at 60K. I have this car and it has an interference engine, meaning that if the belt snaps there is a good chance the engine's pistons will bend the intake/exhaust valves, meaning you would have to have the engine rebuilt if this happens.

I am about to have mine changed, along with the water pump and tensioner since the water pump should be replaced before 100,000 and involves the same labor. I've found that at a Chevy dealership the whole package ranges from $500-$800 depending on who you call.

The plastic bumper covers are dented. I would like to replace tghem with parts from a salvage tard.

Another good source of secondhand bumpers is a spoiler shop, might even find one the same colour if you're lucky.

Hole in front bumper of Infiniti I30 2001

Sure. Use bondo. Do you have a paint sprayer?

Most composite bumpers have the paint in the composite, but I dont' know why, at least for a coupe or three years, the bumper wouldn't hold paint sprayed on.
