    Hey Guys. A contractor who clears the parking lot at my work decided he wasn't going to look before backing up and backed right into my car. I've brought the car to two different shops for estimates and the owner of the contracted company has agreed to pay for repairs. Both shops have indicated...
  2. Scratched Trim/Molding Above Passenger Window

    Exterior Problems
    Parked my car underneath a tree. Tree sap falls on my roof/top of window trim area. I go to clean it with a relatively abrasive APC and end up putting back and forth scratches on the trim. Frankly, I would rather have had the tree sap there then this obviously shameful attempt at cleaning my...
