A couple of months ago I hit a deer, just stunned her and she ran away. Not to much damage but broke up my grill in about 3 places and knocked out a big chunk as well as the emblem flying away.

I was going to order a new grill off eBay but decided to play with this broken one. Got some JBWeld, bondo, flat back paint and some 99 cent numbers from Autozone. A couple of new clips from the dealer.

I don't know how long I will keep it but it did turn out kinda good!! (at least I think so :clap:)

It's one of a kind! I am thinking of flat blacking the bumpers as they are pretty bad and I don't have the cash for a repaint.

Thanks! If I knew if would turn out so good I would have taken before and after pictures! It was nearly in 3 pieces, just hanging together by little sections, with a large chunk broken off completely and a 1"X2" chunk just gone. Amazing stuff JBWeld!

For one flat hides flaws while gross brings the flaws out, and it's harder to do good gloss from a rattle can, flat is easier to touch up... and finally, I like the flat black look! :thumbsup:
