well here is an update on the journey repair was having to wait till 9 /26 to put it in at the body shop and state farm sent their adjuster out and he examined my bumper and took pic and then printed out a bunch of paperwork and then left and then about 2 hrs later i get an email from state farm saying they are sending a check for $862 ( my body shop est was around 989.) and that if the repair goes above that the body shop could contact them to see if they would pay more, so any way while waiting for the check i got out there and gorilla glued the tiny spot where the bumper skin was cracked and then used some touch up paint and dam it looks pretty good you can still see the spot if i pointed it out to you but if you are not looking for it , you probably would not see it. kind of blends in with the other 5 yrs worth of rock scratches and or bug spots or scratches on the bumper....so i got the check today in my name only, so i am just about to cash the check it let it go as is..i would post some pics but dont know how with this old flip phone
