2016 Nissan Bumper/Tail Light Damage Sign In

So I guess I found a blind spot in my backup camera. Hit a supporting structure beam in a parking garage. Cracked my tail light and it came out of it’s place a bit. Dent/cosmetic damage.

Is it possible that this can be a DIY repair? And also approx how much should I be looking at for an Auto Body shop to fix? Thanks in advance.

I removed your photo because it was simply way too large and made the thread unreadable. You need to dramatically reduce the size before reposting it.

As for your car, no refinishing and body work is not a DIY job. It's a skilled trade that takes people many years to learn.

That being said, there are a few things you could do to dramatically improve it. There is no question the tail light needs to be replaced. Most of the white markings on the paint can be washed off using fast dry lacquer thinner. Do not get any on the plastic light.

As far as the body repairs and painting, take it to a professional body shop for an estimate.


We offer help in answering questions, clarifying things or giving advice but we are not a substitute for an on-site inspection by a professional.
