Default good company, saves my cars appearance

had previously cracked one of my weatherflectors in the car wash... with the 900mph winds they blow ur car with

driving in the wind and rain today...

......whine........ whine.......whine......."THOOOOUNCKCHA"....

WHAT??? yeah it just broke off... wind took it... turned around, couldnt find it, and was already late for work.....**** it...

all the other ones had phone numbers on them... so i called it... got a real person on the first try, and he set me up with 1 weatherflector, shipped out that day... AWESOME

i know how hard it usually is to get stuff like that by the individual piece, so im glad, and it was only $20...

anyone interested in the set when i get them all together, my car looks good with or without them....and i dont smoke.... so wtf do i need em for?

Andrew, now call the car wash and tell them what happened and that it'* costing the $20. They should reimburse you because they have the blower cranked too high.

I got the flectors on my truck just for the rainy drive..you can open the windows.

Good luck with the car wash. Most places have disclaimers that they are NOT responsible for damage to vehicles, especially anything added aftermarket. It is probably a waste of time going.

I hear what you are saying. How much does it cost to ask? It paid me $50 for my bug defector that the blower ripped in half and flung across the bay.

I didn't ask labor, just my replacement costs. They handed it over. $20 is about 8 gallons of super unleaded dino juice. Why did the dinosaurs eat lead anyway?

They say take all that stuff off on the outside, especially ones that touch ur car. Touchless ones (like Andrew has found out) just blast them off lol.

Enter at your own risk.

It was the first touchless that touched anything on my truck. lol

And it was the darn blower at the end. I'd rather just wipe it down myself. turn that steriod using hair dryer off!!!
