    Temp measure - Driving without front bumper?

    Hey,

    As above, I'm getting a few bits from the car painted & since the front bumper has a few stonechips I want to get that done at the same time,

    problem is, I need to drive the car daily, so i'm thinking of driving without the bumper for a day or two (just to & from work then up to the garage)

    obviously, if the bumper had just been damaged & came off i'd be okay to drive it home to fix?

    what you's think?

    if you get stopped yu will get a dangerous condition ticket
    and they can recover the car as its not road worthy
    unless you get a good copper

    Thats a lawful excuse though, you couldn't really use it when you were using the car as normal. Plus all your radiators etc would be very exposed.

    If I was a copper I'd be too busy looking at the way cool manner in which your wheels fill the arches to notice missing bumpers.
