    Re: Darn SUV

    Re: Darn SUV

    AAAAhhhhhhhhgggg , this is why i look in my mirror when i break....
    Sorry Gar, lucky you guys in the states have those bumperlets.
    Hope the rest of v-day was good for you
    Shabby job of hiding your no. plate by the way

    Re: Darn SUV

    Fixed it for ya.


    Re: Darn SUV

    Good job ResB... Even buffed out the long scuff along the top of the bumper.

    We were both sitting still at the red light when SHE decided to drive forward! Nobody else was even moving! Said she didn't see me down there.

    After we got out she called it a cute car! CUTE! WTF!

    What about the driver of the SUV...cute?
    Sorry about your bad luck, just make sure they do a proper paint job. But as long as there is no metal involved, don't worry, be happy. And if the driver of that SUV was cute too...maybe you got her phone number. Of course only if the other person in the car with you wasn't your girl friend, wife or whatever.

    Re: Darn SUV

    zack- rest of the day was great at 56F with the top down and no cloud in the sky.

    RC- girl was well above average and apologetic so I wasn't hard on her...
    My daughter 4, and son 5, were in the car and I made sure I dried my tears before I got out. Wife came and got the kids in the same kind of SUV! as I waited 30 min for a cop to even arrive! Cops would be everywhere if I were speeding!

    Re: Darn SUV

    You are luck that cops came. In CA no injury, no cops. Don't feel too bad. Tomorrow will be a better day. Good luck on your repair.

    Re: Darn SUV

    Let me guess she was on her cell phone? That sucks hopefully they do a fantastic repair on it.

    Ya know? This should be this easy in real life. The stuff is mere ABS plastic common stuff, paints and filler should be readily available. People polish scratched plastic by going thru the grits like plexiglass which is acrylic like our paint. There's no big reason these kinds of minor to large scratches and small dents can't be fixed (and fixed well) on a DIY basis. All you need is a collection of materials and tools in a kit.

    Not like the old days with steel and fillers and very uncooperative and unforgiving types of paint.

    Any ideas? Links?

    Re: Darn SUV

    Sorry to hear about this.

    The piece will still require a respray because metallics are hard to spot touch. It can be done at home, but it takes some time. Depending on your DIY capability and willingness, it might be easier to get it done.

    In any case, this is why Porsche installs these little bumpers.

    I see your licence plate saying UGA. Are you a student at UGA? I am at Emory But i also know a lot of friends who go to UGA.

    Re: Darn SUV

    Glad you and the kids are ok. Your car can be fixed or replaced.

    Re: Darn SUV

    So true- two of my co-workers were involved in an accident this morning in front of our work, one died, leaving behind a husband and 4 young children. Dense fog rolled in and shortly thereafter a truck pulled out in front of them.


    I hope your beautiful car is as good as new very soon!

    This is sad news, SVNSVN. Aren't you in the Bay Area? I haven't read/heard anything about the accident. Sad. How fortunate we are to be sitting at home, safe.

    Didn't notice the little chip above the removable bumperettes. I think all of this can be repaired easily by any experienced body shop and the color should match well too. Is the SUV driver going to pay?

    Jeff,

    I live in Fresno ( my work is about 30 mi north). Sorry to post such sad news... I just hope the rennteam buddies are safe and consider how driving conditions can change rapidly. Take care!

    Re: Darn SUV

    It's hard to see from this angle but there is some deformation above the plate. I'll be upset if they don't replace the whole bumper.

    Girl got a ticket and her insurance will pay.

    Thanks all. I never got too upset. I mean... look what I'm driving! Spring is just around the corner.

    JL13 - UGA alumnus for 10+ years but still live here. Was nice then but now? Have you seen the student center and all the new construction and landscaping? I wanna to go back to school!

    Re: Darn SUV

    I feel your pain. Someone backed into the front of my car. I wish I would have been there because the SOB didn't even stop.

    Re: Darn SUV

    I know of 4 people that were rear-ended in Atlanta on Valentine's Day. Not a good week.

    Sorry for your pain...

    Re: Darn SUV

    Is she single?

    If she were super hot, I'd tell her to come to dinner to make it up to me


    Then right before the bill came I would leave the bill from the auto body shop in the leather fold where the dinner bill comes....sign it with a heart, "Happy Valentines Day!" and "AJ" --- then leave
