    It's Official...the first scratch GDI

    Swiped the mailbox door last night. Two scratches on the passenger side pillar.

    Taking it my friend to see if he can wet sand and clear coat it for me. Before Boxerfest of course.

    I plan to burn down the mailbox and its post first chance I get.

    Scratches will happen. I'd say just let it go.

    If it's going to end up being labor intensive, I'll likely do just that but he seems to think it's an easy fix.

    I don't think it'll be too labor intensive. However, to get it perfect it will be. It doesn't look terribly deep. So the wetsand clear might work

    The pictures don't show it very well but it just scrapped off the clear coat.

    Just makes me mad (at myself) since the damn thing isn't even 3 months old yet.

    I've crushed a few cones already, paint chips all over the front bumper, rock chips down the side. It's just a car

    I certainly take care of my cars, but being obsessive won't allow you to enjoy the car fully

    Hey, at least you made it 3 months. Within a week I gouged my bumper on a slightly misplaced battery charger in the garage. The black plastic shows up really well on a white car :/
    I almost paid the $600 or so to get it fixed....then I realized all the parts I could buy for the same amount.
    Yours looks pretty easy to fix.

    He says he can do it for about $100. I'll take it.

    Fix yours! It cost me about three hours, two beers, and 19 bucks from amazon!

    It would take putty, wet sanding and paint. And time...and patientience...and talent. Those last two are the biggest issue. I know me and the thought of bringing sand paper to my paint sounds like a terrible idea. I rush and misjudge and generally get myself into an anxious state that leaves much to be desired. If I had someone with me to guide me a long I would attempt but as it stands I don't know any body shop type people.
