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

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.

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.

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

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.

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