    Ripped off?

    I drive a chevy avalanche got a 2003 cheap and did something stupid now the bumper is partially ripped out and the fog light's bracket and tab are screwed. The local shop says they can fix it for 100$ in 2 hours while re-riveting the site and popping the bumper back in and gluing the tab and bracket back to together. I'm worried that the glue won't hold and it will cause future problems. What do you guys think?

    EDIT:
    Also I was wondering how much it usually costs for tires to be realigned because my truck is now going straight when the steering wheel is to the left and goes to the right when the steering wheel is straight...

    LOL you can't glue it back togethor it will just fall off after a couple of days its bound to,when you get really hot weather mixed with the heat of your truck the glue is just going to melt.



    So do NOT do it

    HUGE RIP OFF

    It will do ALOT of damage in the future

    I would find someone else to fix your truck,someone more reliable like a big company.

    It is actually a big company, I've gotten them to plastic weld it. That way it will hold but there will be a slight discoloration on the spot it was welded. Got my tires done for 60$. I've done all my research and this is the only way for me to get it done cheap without having to buy a new bumper cover (fucking chevys), the bracket is part of the bumper cover.
