accident mod...count me in *pix now*

i was merging onto a street from the expressway and someone cut me off and i was getting onto the street and i swerved and slammed my brakes. Well it was very slick outside and having mud terrains immediately i lost control of the car. I think i over corrected. Well i hit the guard rail and the front bumper and huge scrape and the back panel before the bumper has a football sized indent, crease and alot of paint taken off. UGHHHH IM SO MADDDD, atleast the tires in the front hit the guardrail first otherwise the bumper woulda been messed up worse.

This is the rear dent and scrape in the bumper


This is the front valance scraped

I'm very sorry. It sounds a bit like my mishap a month or two ago. At least it's only cosmetic.

So....where's the pics?...

that sucks! Now I'll say what my Dad says everytime I get a dent or a scratch, "now you don't have to be worrying about when is it going to happen." He thinks it helps but it usually just pi$$es me off!


SO where are the pics!

I'd rub some laquer thinner over those scratches, the look like they'd come off a bit, might make it alot less noticeable

No. I've been using it for a few years now, have worked with many painters, they all tell me it's fine, as long as it isn't laquer paint, or hasn't been clear coated yet. Just wash it off, and wax it.
