Thank you!Congrats ! Those are killer fog lights, are those the "Angel eyes' and where did you get them?
I cry a lot.So I have had my deep mica blue for almost four months now. I feel like I can't even look at it without scratching it. How the frak do you deal? I park in the farthest reaches of any parking lot. I love the color.
I try and view it as just another lesson in powerlessness and the impermanence of things...but, it still pisses me off!I cry a lot.
Kidding. It's a pain. I have currently 12 different paintless rock chips, a couple scratches, and some aberrations from the monkey that works with my vinyl guy. I'll polish it all out soon enough, and fill the chips in. It feels like such a thin paint man. I park far away everywhere too. Just part of the life. Maybe one day I'll make sure all the paint chips are fixed, then wrap the thing.
Unfortunately that's the only way to view it. Chips and damage are inevitable with any daily driven car. Once I fill some of mine in I'll feel a lot better, but it's such a process. Maybe next year I'll wrap the car in something nice.I try and view it as just another lesson in powerlessness and the impermanence of things...but, it still pisses me off!
Up here, all manner to stuff is hurled against your car...clouds of giant bugs, dust, sand, salt, road gravel, debris, rocks, you name it. About the only thing we have in moderation is door dings - and those can happen too, unfortunately.
I try and keep her clean. I wax twice a year with whatever polymer wax is handy (lately I've been using Nu-Finish...yeah, the orange bottle stuff. I'm gonna try Turtle Wax Ice next.) I touch up chips as soon as I can.
Unfortunately, nothing can keep my car safe. Its just never gonna look more perfect than when it was brand new. The sooner I can wrap my head around that, the easier it is for me to accept the inevitable.
