Default good and bad i guess.

two of them **** me off..

I was at my friends' house today.. There was a car parked directly across from his driveway on the side of the street. Before I began backing up, I looked in all three mirrors. . Saw where the car was and distance from my car. Began backing, turned the wheels to the left, figured the butt end of my car was past.. so i stopped watching behind me on the rearview center and right mirrors, and was using left, all of a sudden, loud thud, car stops, and a car alarm began going off.

Hit a '99 Elantra right on the B pillar between the doors.. His doors were smashed in a bit, and my car only got a scrape on the bumper. It still angers me. I washed/clayed it to see if I could get rid of the paint transfer.. didn't barely work

This picture was taken just a few minutes ago. I didn't get the after shot of how it cleaned up until just a few ago. You can't tell from a few feet. Only when you're within 2 feet can you notice.

Eric, I've glued my grille trim back in as well. Clear silicone adhesive, and use tape to hold it while it dries. Wow. Slow week. This is only the 3rd new Your Ride topic in 7 days?
