my baby got in a little accident :(


i took off the bumper and pushed out the dent, so now all i need to do is get it repainted and get that tear fixed. and then im gunna probably need to replace that whole panel. anyone know what it;s called? can i find it cheap online or anything? and then theres a teeny dent in the hood, but im not gunna worry about it. i'll have to buy a new clear corner too... but for now ive still got the oem.

and then this got dented in a lil'. im just gunna get some touch-up paint and clean up the side. otherwise, ill probably leave it be.... not too big of a dent and probably way too much $ to fix.


so yeah, if anyone knows where i can get a replacemnt piece for the front corner/what it's called so i can look around for it. let me know. otherwise it'll probably be a lot of $ from toyota otr whatever

Man that sux. my carmy was hit in the exact same place where your got hit except it wasnt that bad only the turn signal and a dent in the bumper.
the turn signal that ur missing in the first pic is only $43.XXusd from the dealer.
touch-up paint is $3.XX also from the dealer. but i got it free since they had to take 4 days to get the turn signal.

sorry if i wasn;t clear. i already have an oem corner piece. i had clear corners in there, and it got smashed. so now i will just teporiarily replace it with the oem, but the problem is, i need to get that whole chunk of metal above the wheel fixed/replaced first, cause it wont even fit NE more.....

Get it unpainted and bring to body shop to get it matched.Your car's paint has weathered so will not be the same as when it left the factory. If you get it painted, it will look very obvious that it's a patch job.

Touch up paint is great for stuff like rock chips and edges of body panels that accidently get scratched. Not big flat surfaces like hoods and trunks where some assh0le left artwork or fender benders.

it does a good job. id recommend u get it from the dealer. and also have some paint brushes cuz the paint brush that the touch-up paint comes with is really crappy.

Thanks for the reply. Our toyota dealer here doesn't even stock the red antifreeze so I'm sure they don't have any touch-up paint. If I search for it online, what do I have to look for other than perhaps the paint color code?
