Yeah, that's how you do it

They don’t make ‘em like they used to, eh pops?

In the old days car bumpers were positioned out from the body to protect the darn thing. These newfangled designs may look nice, but get tapped at 5 mph and you’re stuck replacing the bumper, the side panel, the taillights…. Pretty soon you can’t afford the annual trip to Boca Raton.

So grab those foam floaty things the grandkids use in the pool, add some rope and boom. It’s like you never left the boy scouts.

(He had the same configuration on the front, except he didn’t cover up the headlights.)
