A car parker at my country club caught the underside front bumper on a curb while backing out of a space. This pulled back the bumper, ripped the underside, and pulled out the plastic rivets that go around the front wheel lip that holds the fender liner. I have not been able to find these plastic rivets. Went to many auto stores and two dealers. I have a two week old SRT-8 that needs these. Please help. I live in Plantation Florida. Thanks, Buzzard.

And so, have you learned anything from this episode?
You need to find an automobile paint and trim supply shop. They carry those plastic rivets in all sizes.
Or checkout J.C. Whitney on-line: www.jcw.com.

Ummm, how about having the country club pay for it! They've got insurance!

I'm guessing you didn't notice it right away.

I will NEVER, I mean NEVER EVER EVER let my car be valeted for this VERY reason.

I've heard it all too many times especially from Viper owners (extremely low front fasci/chin spoiler) that they always get marred, scuffed, and mashed on curbs and such from valet drivers.
