Fender, bumper cover, and looks like it popped the inner fender liner out as well.

Yea - I'd be aggravated too.

Like the time my 1LE got backed into

Its honestly basic detailing. Wash, clay, polish then you do a coating prep and start coating. It took me 16 hours from start to finish. My car was pretty good paint wise before this. I found a lot of high spots in the coating which I polished out later.

I just washed it for the first time today. Washing and drying was so much easier.
I gotcha. I'd like to do that to mine since it's a second daily. Will have to look into it...

I say it's worth it. The wheels dont get brake dust built up as easily, the paint doesnt get nearly as dirty. Basically after I hit it with the hose all the dirt/dust was gone

Mmm, I like the sound of that for sure.

As it is I'm just thankful a silver car looks cleaner longer

you are more than welcome. We have a fun crew, make sure you bring a chair, sunscreen, shade, cooler, and LOTS OF WATER for the track.

for the parking lot party, bring chair, cooler, and lots of "beverages"...lol. Yeah, we party harder. The parking lot partys are awesome. You will meet lots of people, make new friends, and have a wild evening of just hanging out with people that love to enjoy the evening and socialize.

If you want to race on the track or autocross, make sure you get the correct arm band. Racer or Spectator. We will all be putting our cars down the drag strip, and we have crew that are all stock camaros to heavily modified camaros... it's isn't about the racing, it's about having fun with your car!!!!
