My First Fender-bender :'(

After 5 years of driving, had my first fender-bender this morning. Guy in front of me with an SUV slammed his breaks. I have never really slammed my breaks before. I obviously didn't slam them hard enough because I ended up just bumping his trailer hitch. He had no damage whatsoever. The road was also wet, which may have made a difference. Here are some lovely pics for you all. On a more Positive note, I think it's time for an SS bumper soon...

If you can't afford an ss bumper yet, then just heat it and bend the flaps back.

Worst part is, if he wouldn't
Have had a hitch, there would have probably been only scuffs.
Anyone know decent place to find ss bumper? Dealer wants $300 unpainted and eBay shipping sucks(will come out to more than $300 with shipping for a used bumper from eBay)

Good idea. I'm goin to do that for the winter, while I shop around for An ss bumper and then get it painted. But I think I'll still use this bumper for winters so that my ss bumper doesn't get messed up.
