Craaaappppp can't believe I just did this!

So I am getting ready to wash my car an I always flip my wipers up first then wash. Well today I flipped wipers up washed bugs off front of the car then thought well while I'm at it ill take my engine and fuse cover off and get them cleaned up and drop them off tomorrow to be dipped/painted. I'm sure y'all know where this is going.
So I am raising hood an hear this scratching noise and I'm till I see my wiper fall back in place and I it made some small scratches on the edge of hood :(

I remembering reading on here about someone who did the same thing and I was thinking to myself at the time how in the world do you not see your wipers up before you lift your hood? Well it happens people!

I've done it. I didn't get it quite as bad as yours, but still. I've been there.

Happens to the best of us. Don't sweat it.

Yeah that would probably help me out in the future!

Got the spots touched up with some touchup paint so it doesn't look as bad but I will definitely remember to never make this mistake again!

Mistakes- Thats why they put erasers on the end of pencils. Show me a person that never makes mistakes and you will see someone that doesn't do anything.

Did the exact same thing with similar results. I touched it up and it's not even noticable...except to me. Lesson learned, and it won't ever happen again.

Did the same thing when car was a few weeks old but fortunately only gouged the back edge of the vinyl stripes abt an inch. Still felt like crap. It happens.
