I'm trying to figure out how in the heck I managed to do this, so I thought I'd just ask.
Was loading the bird onto my trailer yesterday to take it to the welder and have the front impact bar and crumple zones welded back on, and I had to push the bird w/ my Vic to get it to the trailer- less than 500 ft. total. Both bumpers lined up perfectly, so I know I didn't climb over the top of the birds' bumper.
I get out to see how far away from the ramps I am, and I notice that the right rear tail lense has a chunk missing out of it right under the t-bird emblem in the middle of the light
Is it possible that I flexed the bumper hard enough to push it into the trunk lid, which in turn flexed the lid on that side and then caused the lense to pop??? I've never had that problem before, and I've pushed it around plenty in the last 6 months or so while doing the front end work. Or did I just get a freak crack? Are these trunk lids really that flimsy?
Figures, I get the front end ready to be re-assembled finally, and I manage to crack the dam taillight
These are highly engineered precision vehicles, the first step in diagnosing the problem is to strike the suspected offending part sharply and repeatedly with a blunt object, then re-test.
