Default ARrrrrrrgh. I hate myself.

My kid leaned a ladder up against the garage wall, and I bumped it.

It crashed down on the Miata and crushed the drivers side fender.

I'm so bummed. I finally had it running well with the new turbo, and now I hammered it.

Arrrrrrrrrgh!

Hey, I just performed surgery on myself in my living room. I got bad indigestion and decided to cut my abdomen open and see what was causing it. I found an unborn twin I never knew was in there. Sorry, no pictures, but it's way cool I swear.

But the events are totally unrelated and spaced out by about 3 months. He's 21 and needed to get his own place. My wife just helped the situation along.

The kid said "you are raping my childhood!"

True, but oh so necessary.

On the bright side...it has been my observation that more people take out the driver side fender. There may be more passenger side fenders available in your color.
