well, long story short, I was returning from mac after a good night of fun and I hit soemthing on the way home

I was going about 150 or so at the time, and I *think* it was one of those old truck tire pieces....

I didn't see it cuz I was looking at a sign on the side of the road at the time and next thing I knew, whump! and something black spun off my car and off to the side

I was like, meh....hahaha...lip's polyurethane and the car's going in for a full paint job in a couple days anyway, so I was more worried about my tire in case it was something hard

this is what happened to my lip:


the thing musta flexed like a little bitch so good thing it wasn't fiberglass, or else most of my bumper would be gone so I was like, meh....and forgot about it and went to sleep...

but then the next morning, I saw this...


:disappoin
I hit whatever it was so hard that my bumper broke off of the mounting part to the frame of the car....

luckily I have my spare stock bumper hanging around, so I'm going to get the shop to change my lip over to the other bumper and get eveything installed along w/ the rest of my kit and the paint job.....

but damn....that means I gotta pay more $$$

You're really lucky this happened before you took your car into the shop. :eek:

Yay for Gen3 Camry bumpers and legit Rod Millen lip! :cool:

yeah....I woulda been pissed if it happened right after I got my car out of the shop....:disappoin


and I'm lucky that I have the stock bumper lying around.....I just wonder how hard it'll be for the guy to change the lip over tho...I'm sure they have some super solvent or something for the epoxy....

and yes....150k is pretty fast, but it's at night, and over here, on the 400 series highway, the minimum speed is 120...

I'm also just repainting the car the same color....it's either that, or I always wanted red, and I have enough problems with the cops already..

Obviously, I wouldn't care if you were doing 200, 250, 300 km/h. :thumbup:

Wait, what you have on your car is just a lip with the stock front bumper?
I think it's just the Rod Millen lip, yeah? Too flashy for me (imho, remember that), but I'm surprised there's even Gen3 Camry stuff made by Millen :p:

I thought that was the front bumper of a body kit.

I love it.

ouch! I understand you doing 150. I have trouble driving speed limit too. Its just unfortunate that they don't always clean up the mess on highways after accidents. Sorry to hear about it man... hope you get it fixed without any problems.

hmm...funny...I don't remember seeing a sign posted that said "Minimum speed: 120km/h". As I recall, posted max is 100km/h :lol: But don't worry....I drive avg 120km/h (when clear enuf). Even I can't stay at the limit...I'd be dragging the whole world down if I did.

It's a shame about the damage, but definitely good thing it was before the paint job. I say....RED...go for it! :thumbup:

Yeah hitting things on the highway sucks... My girlfriend was driving, and we were on the way home from class last week and she's looking to the side so she can change lanes and I see this big slab of concrete in the way.... :eek: Yeah, before I could even say anything we hit it keep in mind we were doin' like 80.... she drives a '99 accord coupe, so we were pretty low to the ground.... There was this loud, thud and I thought somehting must have broke. So we pulled over, and I checked everything out and it was all fine... but that was shitty.
