GT Bumper Sagging

Question: I have a problem with my rear bumper above the black trim. Just under the tail lights. It seems that every 86 fiero gt fastback that I've seen have 1/2 an inch or more of a gap at this area. On the rear, sidemarker lights seem loose too. Is that only normal because of wear and tear that the car takes over hard bumps? I don't know anything about the body but I looked under the bumper and the clips or snaps (as you should call it) are loose. Could a bodyshop repair this problem correctly or its worn bad?

Answer: This is common when a car has been "tapped" in the rear. Sounds like this has at one time. Pull the facia off. The side to side mounting bar can then be bent back up.
