    Having Bad Day :(

    ImageUploadedByAG Free1353454602.617391.jpg

    I'm working days this week instead I my normal shift. It's late in the evening, im not as sharp and the wife and I and my dog are heading out. I'm backing out of the driveway and brush the wife's car as I'm trying to avoid my house on the other side some of the stuff is scratches and some are gouges to the plastic. Depending on the price to fix it back to new, I may just have the scratches wheeled out and leave the gouges as they are. I've never done anything like this before in all my driving and now the first nice car I have it happens to!

    I'm sorry dude! I think that has happened to all of us at one point in our life. I'm sure you must be very frustrated over it. Hopefully it won't look so bad after all the scratches are wheeled out and maybe you can touch up the gouges.

    Thanks man, ya working a different shift just has me all off kilter. I thought I might be ok because it was such a gentle brush that my wife didnt even feel it and thought I was crazy thinking something happened. Oh well stuff happens gotta make the best of it now.

    looks like most of it should polish out because its just paint transfer. you can also get the side of the cover blown in but blends usually come back too haunt you.

    Ya I think I'll just walk for the rest of the month lol. I'm going to put another shot up in daylight for a more accurate representation. Seriously though folks, please be extra careful out there especially with the hunters chasing all the deer around too.

    Well I have some good news. In the light of day the scuff is almost invisible!? This is very interesting as it showed up well with my flashlight and in a pic with the flash on. I think it's because the bumper is angled downward there and reflects the light in my favor Also the Black Granite Metallic as I've noticed before has a reflective quality to it which seems to help in hiding this as well.
