The Silver Bullet, Part Deux

In the light of day, I took a look at the Silver Bullet. Wanted to see the extent of the raccoon damage and the magic of zip ties.
We decided it would probably be best just to take the bottom of the front end off. We didn't see a real need for it so off it came.
Once we got it off, you could see the big dent on the left-hand side. That must have been the original point of impact.

As we discussed the damage, Zena decided to impersonate the raccoon.....

Then the husband got busy zip tying.


The coon busted the plastic from the screws underneath the car so the husband was trying to zip tie it up so it wouldn't drag or rub the tires. It's amazing the damage a little animal can do to a plastic car. Just hope a big animal never steps out in his way!

So does this make the hubby a mechanic? :D

Seriously, that racoon must've been a monster. Is he sure it wasn't Big Foot?

What will he do if he hits a deer? Industrial strength zip ties? Maybe he should zip tie pillows to the bumper- just in case!
