Default Re: Lolas Paint Job!

Well, the paint on LOLA lasted all of about three or four weeks. I had to go service a piece of large equipment the other day and needed to use the Freeway. Wouldn't you know it, but there was a ******* DUMPTRUCK that was over loaded with gravel - Spilling all over behind him. I didn't notice the damage until today when one of my employees was looking at the pinstripes. He said, "Where did you get all of the paint chips from?".
I hate ****** DUMPTRUCKS!
Luckily enough, I still have more Base Coat and Clear Coat so I can refinish it again.
He got both fenders, the hoood and the bumper cover.
I wonder if you can file a hit and run police report on the overloaded -gravel spraying piece of ****? And the P.O.S DRIVER!
Can you tell that I'm super Pissed?
It took so long to refinish LOLA at home - And Less than a month later, it's pretty much turned to ****!~

that sucks man I am in sort of the same boat.

I was washing my car about 2 weeks after I got it painted and the nosel sliped out of my hands and put a small scratch on the trunk of the car (luckily it came out) a few months later (now) I wash my car again and I find this grey scrape all the way across the drivers side half of my fron bumper (at the bottom) I was cussing and everything I thought someone had pulled something by my car and it had scratched the paint off on that place. luckily whatever it was left its paint on my car and with some scratch remover it came off also. But both of those times when something had happened I thought I was going to blow a fuse.

I hope you can get yours repaired, any idea what company the truck driver was from?

thats why a clear bra is the absolute best thing money can buy for new paint.

I don't think that the Clear Bra would have helped what happened to LOLA. Not only was the Bumper cover chipped, but the hood, windshield, and the wheel flair parts of both fenders took sustained damage.
