Left work today and drove just a few hundred yards to the pub (stupid I know as I could have left the car in the car park at work). Left the car and went in for an hour is so. Came out and noticed a white 306 (knackered) parked next to me and the door looked as though it was banging against mine as the lady (FAT) was 5odding around getting her little brat out the car. Anyway, yep sure enough, dent in the rear door along the crease line - very noticable I hasen to add. Marvalous 8loody marvelous
So, no point in speaking the lady as she looked the complete ignorant variety who would not give two hoots about me moaning to her. Anyway, me the dipstick thought of a good idea. When she went in the pub I got my door and swung it out hard to knock a HUGE one into hers (in hinsight it was stupid anyway as it was already an old banger) and guess what I did. Oh dear
my door (she was parked the other way around to my) caught her 5hitty black door mirror and carved a huge dent into the door, just above the door handle on the curvature. WHAT AN IMBOSILL I REALLY AM.
Needless to say this afternoon I have stripped the door trim out and inspected the inside of the door to see if it can be punched out. RESULT? - NOPE
- its double skin where the dent is.
Therefore 3 options:
- Fill it which is a no go as it will look worse imo
- See if Chipsway etc can do anything
- Leave it
I will try to pull it out using a sucker but this will be hard given the strength of the skin at such a solid point (although not so solid it dents with wing mirrors
) and pops has it at work at present.
Ho hum....the joys of motoring hey.
