During a new year'* party, someone slashed all four of a friend'* tires and then kicked the crap out of my door. I took out the door panel and such and punched it all back into place. The fiberglass side isn't the same, though.
We know who did it, but he doesn't want to pay us back. The guy that got his tires slashed had just bought all 4 new. The slashing idiot wanted to pay for half of the tires and give him 2 used spares. What a terrible thing to happen to such a great party.
In comparison, I think your chrome wheel is far worse off because my car is a 289K-mile 94 car with a horrible previous owner and some rust. I can only imagine the horror you're experiencing. I'm really sorry about this, and I hope you find the guy that did this and stab him!
