Got mad.. hit my doorpanel.. what to do?

So lemme just start off by showing the pictures





OKay so basically i got mad and hit my passenger door because my car kept stalling. Now im left with these two marks on the plastic interior. I was thinking some touch up paint might fix it, or something anything of that nature. Im open to ideas thanks guys

try a heat gun on low heat, it should bring some of the color back and make it look normal again

And don't take your anger out on your vehicle. Take it out on family members or a pet instead.

Actually, don't take it out on your pets. That's just wrong. Maybe a neighbor instead.

hahah thanks eeveryone for those replies. Luckily i do have a heat gun and i will try that. I know i should not take anger out on my truck But i have always thought it was a LEMON.. i bought it brand new cash in 05 for $15k.. around 18k miles i started having all sorts of damn problems... i have got it checked out but it would take to long for me to describe everything that has happened to my truck

atleast you didn't throw your phone at the dash, have it ricochet into the windshield and split the windshield.. that wasn't one of my better ideas.

Next time, inhale deep, hold for 2 seconds, then exhale.

No need to smash your ride.

Like mentioned, 1st off fix your vehicle so that it doesn't stall out. If you can't, and it's a lemon like you said, get rid of it. If you have a short fuse like that, I'd get rid of the problem. In the end, you'll have a vehicle that runs, and a fist that isn't sore.

I seen a guy get stuck and then beat the sh*t out of his truck for it. He punched and kicked the drivers side door and front fender to crap. Personally I think the truck should have beat the crap out of HIM. Things break and get stuck due to driver error or lack of maintenance, vehicles don't just get stuck. LOL

Best advice here. 9 times out of 10 your going to regret it anyway. Still happens to me all the time, just put another mark on my dash last week from my phone freezing up. It got so bad though that my girlfriend and brother didn't even want to help me work on my truck. Just take a step back next time, take a deep breath and go at it again.

Yeah... I did the same thing. Glad I'm not the only one who that's happened to.

While were on the topic, about a year ago i threw my brand new blackjack (2 months old) against my window.. It ended up breaking my phone into pieces but did absolutely nothing to my window. Also i live in a gated community and our damn gate guards don't open the gates sometimes.. When they don't i just run over them. I stopped doing that awhile back though because i had to buy a whole new headlight assembly among many other things LOL.

Here are some pics of the "heat gun" fix.. took literally 5 minutes


(YAY no "hole" marks)

Sorry for bad pic.. it was on iphone and lighting in my garage was bad

my best friend got his car stuck in our driveway one december. got out, kicked the car in the rear quarter. after that, the car wouldn't start. towed it back to their house, still couldn't get it to start. pulled the trunk lining out to pop out the dent, he hit the fuel cutoff switch. moral of the story, don't take it out on the car/truck.

You punched the right door panel? Lol You must of been pretty mad.

But I'll add that you can use a heat gun on almost all plastic with stress marks, we do it all the time when you bend your plastics on motocross bikes.
