    Yeppers. Gotta pay off the hospitals and drug companies for my young son's chemotherapy, first. Bad timing, this.

    As you know family comes first. I hope your son is doing well.

    It looks like the marks on the bumper may be paint transfer. Try some scratch x, you may get most of them off. Also a dent wizard guy might be able to help with the dent below the tail light.

    Hate to admit it, but being and idiot is not exclusive territory. I have a scuff on the same fender flare. I somehow managed to catch a break and do no further damage....go figure. So sorry for your adversity.

    I just got a new garage and I decided I would NOT back in to it, for fear of backing into it. It is close enough driving in nose first. Hope you son does well.

    So sorry that your son has to go through this. The car can wait...family first. Chemo is no fun at all but it works. And the white cell boosters, Neupogen and/or Neulasta are so incredibly expensive! Hang in there...
    My wife went through chemo and radiation. Oh ..and my first wife went through it as well. Apparently it's not safe to stand too close to me.

    Most of that will buff out, and may your family heal, grow and enjoy motoring together!
