I can see where you're coming from but i actually saw where it started from and it was the headlight area. An area i hadn't touched since owning it.

Unfortunately the world will never know.

It's over and done with now, but as you had recently replaced front bumper......

Not saying it's your fault but the timing doesn't exonerate either.

As you said, the world will never know.
