I just got my lexus and I unfortunately curbed it while I was reversing down my steep hill (hence its late at night/early in the morning and raining. I couldn't see for **** and apparently the curb came out of no where:'( ) Now I don't know what to do nor do I understand since I'm a girl and new to this. Please help guys. I don't want to spend lots of money at a shop.
But then again if be crazy attempting to do a DIY
xoxo,
J

did you have to sand down the entire lip to make it all even? or is the area that you fixed a little thinner than the rest of the lip.
