Rear corner panel fix/solution

Backed into a tree which caused some havoc. So I ordered some AEV corner guards, oem tail-light, and I already had poison spyder bfh rear bumper. So I got to cutting down the frame, grinding, drilling to replace the stock bumper. Installation was kind of a pain for the bumper but also fun. Once I got the rear bumper on I lined up the corner armor (best I could with the wrecked side caved in and destroyed) there are some gaps present. With the armor lined up I drilled pilot holes. Removed armor and drilled the desired hole size, de-blurred and painted holes, inserted/seated the riv-nuts, bolted down the armor and replaced the taillight and license plate holder.
All in all a good weekend of wrenching

Ouch!! I'm actually on my 3rd tire carrier lol. I'm saving up for a Teraflex hinged carrier and tire mount. Until then I hope I keep getting lucky finding the stock ones cheap on craigslist.
