    Nah... the snowbank isn't a problem... it was actually the big pile of snow left at the end of the driveway by the plow... I just backed into the driveway right through it, and the edge of the air dam caught....

    :x :x :x :x :x fuck I slid into some kid in an old fox mustang this morning cause the snow at the stop sign was now a nice polished ICE! .. nothing happened to his car and the corner of my bumper cover was hanging of.. I checked to see how sturdy it was still on there and not very so i ripped it the rest of the way off and stuffed it in the trunk

    Joe: That sucks! Thankfully you didn't do any real damage to his car.

    ... and as for the repair... the duct tape didn't really hold... let go just as I was getting to work (I heard it start dragging on the ground.)
    I was hoping it would last until I could find my zip ties to make it a little more permanent.... :)

    Yep... stickers seems to be the only thing they can make that isn't complete crap... but the only APC sticker I had was stuck to the toilet seat at my old apartment last I recall... :lol:
