Default CB Setup and Rim Damage

Well here is my new/old CB setup. I have a Midland 40 channel/3 VHF Weather band radio. Its nothing special, but it gets the job done. The magnet mount was donated by my neighbor. I washed and then waxed the trunk twice before putting the antenna on.

Now, sadly, here is my curb scraped rim. I was making a u-turn to go help someone who broke down in the middle of an intersection when I scraped the curb. Rookie driver mistake. I'm going to clean it up, maybe lightly sand it, but I'm not getting a new rim. I'm getting a truck in the next couple months, and the car is getting old so its not worth it i guess.

just to give you a heads up, that mag mount will scratch and maybe discolor the trunk a little.
My SE has a little discoloring on it now :(

But looks good anyway. is that a Realistic antenna? (Radio shack)

You know that can scratch your paint. Its better to put something like some plastic cut to shape between the magnet and the paint. Like really thick garbage bag plastic or shrink wrap plastic.

nope, that doesn't help john. and the magnet mount normally always have something on them anyway to protect.

the problem is that its a magnet, and it will more a little, and unless its SUPER clean theres going to be a little amount of dust or something that will scratch over time.

but we will see, i just know every time iv see or used one my self, theres always a few scratches :(

Bummer about the rim Andrew, but trust me. you dont have to be a rookie driver to make mistakes. I have proof on my rims

Or maybe you're just a rookie driver Jim. :P j/k

That'* unfortunate about your rim. That'* one of those things that would get me really irritated. Things like that always tend to (almost) happen to me when I'm going out of my way for someone too. I almost t-boned a big deer at 75mph giving my brother a ride home this year. And I hit a massive branch in a road while driving my boss to his car last week which could have came up and smacked the car. Luckily it didn't.

With a bit of work you could probably clean that scrape up nicely.
