Angry Ugh! I need a new bumper cover!

Last night while going to a friends house for a birthday party I was behind a F-150 4x4 that was trying to find a place to park to go into a bar across from my destination. So they decided to back up so they could to turn into a parking lot that they had just barely driven past and BAM! They back right into my car! She claimed she could not see my car because it had a black top and she thought it was her truck bed cover she was seeing and it was dark out. It was about 10:20 pm. Her insurance will cover it but I'm going to try to find one that is already painted the color of my car. Anyone know where I can find a silver 2005 OEM bumper cover? I'm located in Charleston, WV.

There a couple on eBay but they aren't silver except for a cover for a 2006-2010 PT. You'll just to have it paint a new cover. Your's don't look that bad, Did you see if any local shop could repair it?

You can actual order one your color on eBay. I can't speak to how they look. Never seen one panted. There is also a parts page on Facebook. You have to join. I sure someone can post the link.

I'm just going to replace it with one that's not been damaged. I'll be going to get an estimate for repair tomorrow morning. I will also make a call to the local salvage yard to see if they have one in silver. Hopefully nothing underneath it is damaged.

Both being unlikely. The ones I was referring to are new aftermarket. I've gotten on for the turbo model and it fit well.

I wasn't sure about the aftermarket covers. Glad to know they actually line up correctly. I just may go that route if I can't find one in a salvage yard.
