Vinyl hood vandalism..

So i was at the Chicago auto show today and noticed some people wrote on the hood wrap i'm guessing with their nails or something and it left marks that would not come out.. I tried to get pictures but it didn't show up well in them.

How is this going to be handled if it happens to us out on the street? Will the INSURANCE (Not warranty) cover it? Does it need to be rewrapped?

Did this happen to your car? I would venture to say if it was vandalism the warranty would not apply ( Warranty is for factory defects), you would have to turn it in on your insurance.

Oh ok, I hate people that do crap like that. I have had ice cream cones dumped in my car while it was parked in front of my house with the windows down back in the 70's. Had Garbage dumped on my truck at a NASCAR race at Bristol in the 90's. Jealousy and hate is probably the main reason.

Yeah i figure if they're out there doing that they don't have the brain capacity to work a good enough job to afford one.

That sucks. The auto show has a ton of foot traffic though. People will steal the shifter knobs and anything else that can be unscrewed.

I had Raisin Canes sauce thrown all over the front of my car last night while I was in the grocery store. The grease would not come off! So instead of worrying how it looked and seeing all those water spots, I just decided to take off the vinyl wrap. There is a pic in my build thread... link below. Better pics tomorrow after a good wash.

While I was at NAIAS one of my co-workers wanted to sit in a Mercedes, but the rep there explained how they no longer keep the cars open because they get vandalized... people these days need a lesson in discipline and respect.

You can't be serious to think vandalism would be covered by a warranty. I guess you meant insurance.

Seriously!? WTF?

I had a 1987 Chevy Eurosport and someone dumped a coke over the roof and kicked a dent in it at McDonald's.

Had a 95/96? Saturn wagon and someone keyed the snot out of it at a grocery store.

Had a 97 Jeep Grand Cherokee and someone stuck a screwdriver under the key lock and tried to pry it off.

Had an 84 Z28. One time someone spray painted F^CK across the side of it. I buffed it out. Later someone tried to throw a foundation block thru the back window. It bounced off. In between those two episodes I had a gun pulled on me at night.

And in 1988 I got run off the road on Xmas eve by a drunken Sales manager from Arnold Palmer Buick in Latrobe PA.

We live in a crazy world. Somehow I'm still an optimist.

Stop taking up two spaces when you park......... Just kidding.

People have lost all respect for the property of others. I blame it on bad parenting. Nobody teaches the golden rule to their kids.

Funny you say that. The Saturn was parked next to an F150 who was over the line himself. I was between the lines and I got keyed.

And the Jeep was the only car in my work parking lot. It happened over night.

I am quite young for owning a camaro 1le. Seeing your history of vandalism, I'm not looking forward to my future in owning nice cars... especially how our society is progressing. No one has respect anymore!

Someone threw a crescent wrench through the driver side t-top on my '99 Camaro SS.

I actually still have the wrench.

Back to topic. Autoshow vandalism is well known. And in some cases actually expected and monitored for durability testing. GM has done some monitoring of how many people sat in a car during an autoshow and it helped them determine the wear patterns for leather drivers seats. It’s free real world testing.

I HATE parking lots!! Once had some young kids squeeze their POS Saturn INCHES away from my car at a dinner some club members went to! Like stated before people have no respect for others property! Even though I always park out at the ends of the lot I usually find some A hole right next to me

One other show some nitwit decided to open my fuel door far enough( and hard enough) to actually dent the quarter panel with the edge of the fuel door !!
