    What do you figure this is worth? From a hit and run in a parking lot :(

    Wondering what the ballpark cost would be on having a front bumper from a B7 A4 painted? It's not on the car, No damage, just paint, I'll install it myself. I live outside the city, otherwise I'd just swing by the shop for an estimate but a rough estimate will save me a trip! Thanks.

    Hey, sorry I didn't see this right away.. If I'm not mistaken it would be around the $1000 mark. I will try to remember to check for you tomorrow, and I will see if grey needs to be blended to match it properly. (I don't think you need to with grey)

    Where can I get body adhesive to re-attach a loose corner on my rear spoiler? I'm also thinking I'll use this to re-mount my side skirts as the double sided tape didn't hold as well as I'd have liked last year.

    Was it the 3m double sided trim tape that failed? I use that stuff a lot and have never had it pop off again. Its holding on side skirts on my mazda with literally a mm or two of contact surface along the skirt edge and it has been like that for some time now. If that isn't the tape you were using, I'd try it. Calgary body shop supply should have it. If it is what you used, I'm sure they have other options too.

    Canadian Tire. The Scotch double sided tape, it's black with red peel off stuff. It's the same stuff we use in our shop just says scotch instead of 3m but it's the same company. You shouldn't need any adhesion promoter (I used this stuff to tape my door mouldings and it works fine) but of you see some pick it up and apply it before the tape! Makes it stick that much better! Just make sure everything is clean and dry!

    And Stefan is correct that is the go-to stuff. However you can pick it up at Canadian Tire it just doesn't say 3m!

    Yeah, it was 3m heavy duty. Red plastic transfer paper as you described. I also cleaned the car and skirts with goo gone, then sips and water, then 90% isopropyl alcohol. Will try clay bar in the spring I guess and try to find some adhesive promoter.

    Odd.. The best advice I can offer would be to make sure it's all dry and use the adhesion promoter. Sometimes it doesn't stick if it's not all perfectly clean and dry so test the adhesion by pulling/pushing on the tape before mounting. If it's loose at all or slides when you push on it, you'll have to redo it.

    I could not get the double sided tape to work on my GTR either. Seemed like there was too much pressure on the piece to allow the tape to hold.

    I find using a heatgun works the best on those trim pieces

    Found this gem today. Some kind of outward dent and the paint chipping off all around it. Looking to get it fixed as it'll drive me nuts knowing it's there waiting to chip some more paint. Any insight is appreciated! Also have some other stuff needing a look at so I'll most likely swing by and get an estimate.
