That looks terrible. Ive had that happen to me as well last year about this time too. And i went with the chrome lmc grille to save time and money. And it caused more time than i wanted. But i think it was all because of the bumper bracket that i got from lmc. because the lwr grille panel i had to shave some of it off because it didnt fit right because of the bracket. also what else prolly went wrong was because i did it when it was cold out and plastic and cold dont mix.1994 GMC Yukon, 2 door, Victory Red: 1992 Buick Park Avenue

Actually, the paint is not all that bad. It has a semi-recent paint job and it was base/clear, so it is nice. The pin stripes look bad so I am going to re-stripe it.
I am not ordering anything from LMC. There are plenty of local places that sell for the same place and I won't have to pay shipping. I will probably not buy an aftermarket grille since the Bowie never fits them right. The manufacturers don't get the licensing to put the Bowie shape on the grille, so they can't make them to surround the Chevrolet logo all the way around. I will probably go with a boneyard grille.
It would be cool if someone made a grille that had the Bowie shaved altogether. I might would consider one like that.
The diesel bumper will probably get a set of driving lights installed in it or just be left plain for the looks. I like things to be different but not totally customized... Particularly on something this old.
I DID think about one of those LMC custom bumpers with the lights mounted in them but I have much better ways to spend the money. I am putting on new all terrain rubber on a set of factory '03 alloys I scored from Craig's. I was never really hyped up about the bullet holes that came on the truck.
I am also considering a bull bar for the front, a tonneau cover and a few other goodies. We'll see. I started deconstruction today. I should have it put back together by next weekend. From there, we'll see... I will post up pics as I progress..."It went together didn't it? Well then there has to be a way to take it apart!" - Me.

I must've missed this thread while working my tail off and traveling for work. Sorry this happened to you but I'm glad you are ok and that you are looking at it the same way I tend to look at vehicle issues -- opportunity for an upgrade/improvement!

Got all of my parts in today. Tomorrow morning starts with new tires on my new factory alloys, bumper and straightening the core support. Once that is all done, the rest will be a breeze. I will take pics.

I feel your pain. A few years back a big doe ran in front of me, didn't even have time to react. Hit her at 55mph and she did some damage. Tweaked my bumper, broke half my grille, and took out my left parking light. Glad your okay and there was no more damage. It could have been worse.
