    Doca’s XV: Stamford

    Toyed with starting a journal for a while now and because it won’t fit anywhere else, today is the day.

    Today is a sad day. At the same time I was having fun with MSPaint

    From here:

    Came this:

    That did this:

    Which resulted in this:

    For those curious, the wafer thin paint that people have mentioned here has survived without a scratch.

    Holy mackerel, Doca, I sure hope that invoice is in Canadian dollars, not USD! That's a mighty big ding to your check book for such a small repair, if you ask me.

    I hope Stamford is doing okay and resting easy. ... shhh.gif ... nurse.gif ... doctor.gif ...

    So sorry, Doca.

    And Gerry, I don't think Stamford needs any ice applied to the injury...

    So sorry to hear about the incident that happened to your car. I know from your posts that you take good care of your car. Sometimes whatever happens is out of our control. After you get it fixed, Stamford will be as good as new.

    So sorry Doca! Hopefully Stamford will be back to his old self in no time!

    And....I hear the Quartz Blue Pearl paint is the most durable.

    Thanks all. First dent I’ve ever gotten in a car.

    Because it’s a Japanese car I asked if it was in yen. That’s wouldn’t have been so bad, like $15. The problem is the main impact was right on the contour line so they can’t just pop it out. Th job includes blending paint so now I have daymares of cutting and future issues.

    The worse part is that it’s actially kinda hard to see with the naked eye and I’m at a point of conflict. Fix it when there’s no paint damage but maybe introduce a problem area later or, live with it and let it nag at me everyday.

    He’s going to gets nice relaxing bath, inside and out, this weekend. Then ice cream... cars like ice cream, right?

    Going through insurance because that’s what it’s there for. Down it’s down to pocket change for thr repair.

    Sadly, it may not be worth making an insurance claim, depending on your deductible and future increases in premium. Your insurance agent should be able to let you know what effect it would have.

    500 deductible and no impact to rates, so I’ll save $850. I would have paid 500 to pop it out yesterday and been done with it. My biggest concern is that it’s not going to be a solid piece of factory sheet metal anymore.
