Well !! my story goes ...over the 3 yrs I have managed not to bang or dent the car myself I have been careful where I park it and make sure I back into nothing (a story of my campervan that my grandkids do not let me live down ) But others are not so worried about how they bang my car especially in carparks .... The Mall in Rotorua has very narrow parking spaces ( fit in more cars was their object I believe). I have collected a few dings that have gradually gone rusty.
So while I was away on holiday I gave my car to a local Panel and Paint man ( friend of my son's) who took all the scratches and small dents out of my car.... looked great on my return.
Till last week when I opened the electric garage door into the front of the car ... I had parked it may be just 2 inches to close ... thus I now have scrapes along the front bumper ... I have come to the conclusion that this car is destined for scrapes and scratches. Lucky for me the bumpers on new cars are made of plastic so will not go rusty ...Wheee!!!!!
