Damage Done on the way home.....

A very large piece of tire was thrown at my car on the way home. My car was not paying attention and got a black eye and a large dent on the fender :facepalm:

Whew! I was expecting another wreck! Glad nothing too serious happened.

Damn, sorry to hear about your incident. I hit a retread on the way to Fest, but it just popped out my lower grille, I was able to snap it back in to place. Those retreads are dangerous.

Damn that sucks, I had a couple close calls with tire debris on my way back. Glad your alright, hopefully get the car back to what it was soon.

Might be able to paintless dent remove that fender dent and buff out a lot of the scuffing. I've seen the paintless guys take out some big dents.

that sucks it seems like those things are everywhere.....Hope you get it all back and pretty soon...

Wow, that must have been a scary moment! Glad y'all are ok... Keep in mind the car can be fixed.

I got lucky once or twice during our convoy (thanks to our radios)

I didn't sign up for autox at the fest because I knew I would get plenty of it on the way there and back due to tires in the road lol

Man, sorry to hear about it Chris. Hope atti2de's fixed up soon!

Sorry to hear about this! I hate treads on the highway. They have caused some major damage to one of my previous cars. Hopefully you'll be able to get it fixed quickly and easily!

I lost a passenger DRL due to tires on the way home. First I thought it was just a bulb out but on closer inspection the lens and bulb are gone. My DRL halo was hanging loose.
I hope you get that dent fixed up. You have a nice looking car. I still want to know who smoothed out your DRL bezels. Can't find that anywhere.

I had a body shop here in San Antonio smooth my fog lights and paint them. There was a guy selling on camaro5 but don't remember who...

Well, PDR worked on the fender. APC worked on all the rubber. Now just need to get the nose sanded and painted.
