Ranger attacked by local shovel....

I went out into the garage this morning and noticed dirt on the hood of my truck.......hmmmm....where'd that come from? I walked around to the drivers side and saw that the shovel that was hanging on the wall fell off the hooks and bounced off the dome in the hood and then slid down the hood.....and I'm not talking about the handle. Then it got wedged under the bug shield and thats where I found it.

I was able to buff most of it out with some light compound and then NXT cleaned up the remainder of small stuff. There is one mark, where it hit the dome, that I couldnt get out. Its little, but its pretty deep. I'm gonna keep an eye on it and if the clear starts to chip, I'll have to take it and get that portion of the hood painted. Maybe this is a good time to look into getting that steel dual cowl induction hood I found online lol.....naaaaa. but it sucked....I thought I was going to pass out when I saw the shovel lying on my hood. Almost threw up. NXT cleaned up alot of it though, so again, I HIGHLY reccomend this wax....I'm really impressed with it.

That's some bad luck there. A freak accident I guess?
