Hit a deer last night on the way home (dark). It was this year's fawn so IT WAS small but I hit it square head on. Bent my bumper and antique license plate. Pictures to follow.
Anyone know someone who expertly repairs license plates?

Ouch Ed, looks like a terrible wreck - maybe it burned since there were no signs of any spokes left?

John, I'm assuming the humans came through it okay, but I doubt the poor fawn did, let alone the poor car! Sounds like minor car damage though, so that is good. One of my biggest fears is the deer, and around here they're out morning noon and night.

If Alan is referring to Gerald, I believe he's retired. You might try here: http://www.finishyourplates.com/

Around here the problem is Hogs, Nothing like slamming into a 3 foot high, 200 pound side of meat. My truck is just high enough to go over them if the impact didnt throw them. Can cause all kinds of problems. Back when I lived up north I had just bought my truck brand new, I told my friend that we should go buy a target deer, I will hit it with my truck and get that problem over with.

If you were driving in Australia, You would be using a kangaroo catcher. Some years ago I drove in the outback in Australia and a lot of cars had this little frame work on the front off their cars to prevent damage from all those kangaroo's.

Fortunately it was a small one and damage was minimal... to the car. The deer went full length UNDER the car and wasn't so lucky.

Regarding your question about a plate restorer, here is a list:

I use Dan Landino for all my plates and am happy with his work.

It's a T, Bend out the plate gently on the anvil. Same with bumper.

Could have been worse if you didnt have a bumper. Looks like that saved a lot of damage.

George,

Was thinking the bumper saved my radiator!
