Damn scratches
 
1 Attachment(s)
I'm furious. Someone someone scuffed my car at the mall… again! What the hell? This is the second time in 2 months. It makes me not want to drive my car anymore. My comprehensive insurance will definitely go up if I get this fixed with my car insurance.

They even busted the wheel lining. I managed to snap it back, but now there's gaps. Will that be an issue if I'm driving in the rain?

Sorry guys. I'm just pissed. Need to vent. [ATTACH]8858[/ATTACH]

People have no damn respect anymore!! Sorry to see/hear man. You can use a heat gun to form the cover a little better than that, and a paint shop could def make that look a lot better than it is without a ton of money spent outta pocket. Obviously painting is the only way to make it flawless. But a good wetsand and buff will certainly help a lot. Best of luck OP!

Actually, after a second look at your pic I can see marring. Is that all the way down to plastic throughout? Hard to tell cause it looks like a black bumper underneath. If so, no wetsand and buff can help with that....

It gives the car character. Tell people you were rallying in the woods and a tree jumped out in front of you!

That's terrible jizzlets! That's why my wife yells at me, I park as far away from any car as possible lol. I am super paranoid about door dings and scratches, I even cringe when I hear rocks hit my paint on the highway.

^I agree I park way out in no man's land as well. My girlfriend complains when the weather isn't nice so sometimes I'll be nice and drop her off at the door. I'd rather walk further than go through that, even though it's always possible to happen out there. I got the door trim put on so I have a little bit of cusion on the doors, I figure the trim is easier to fix than the door. If I know I'm going somewhere that the parking is tight, I have my girlfriend drive and use her car.

Sorry to hear/see about his man! Hope everything works out with getting it fixed.

That ain't gonna buffout. But I'd bet it's prob only $200-$300 to fix....

I'm glad when I had damage done it was my fault and could only be mad at myself, which i was. I had it in the shop immediately to get it fixed. Luckily I have had the car more than a year now and isn't as new as you guys. It definitely sucks.
