So I've had my car two months, and while I am absolutely OCD about all of my vehicles, I got the first ding on the car with just 200 miles on the car. I had ran over a nail in just three days of owning the car, I took the car to a major, reputible tire chain to fix the tire. Apparently instead of using the lift, the guy changing the tire used a floor jack and must have allowed the handle to hit my rocker panel. Here's the kicker, the guy who repaired my tire came over to greet me and tell me how much he liked my car, and how he personally owns a hawk eye with a ton of mods etc.. but yet he still managed to be careless when working on my car and chip paint off the rocker panel.
Second one happened last night, was putting my three year old in the car from leaving the in-laws and I didn't realize he was waving this toy truck around in his hand and it smacked my cars quarter panel as I was trying to put him in his car seat. At first I didn't think anything of it, then saw the damage today in the day light. Dang the paint on these cars are thin. I swear that plastic toy truck didnt hit the car that hard, but it was hard enough to chip the paint.
I'm a master detailer by trade from a past life Lol and after two- hours of color sanding the area, filling with oem touch up paint and top coat, polishing and a few beers I improved the blemish by 98% anyway was just wondering how long it took to get your first ding, scratch or blemish?
