A three inch curb rash on my right front rim while trying to park as close to the island curb as I could so car next to me would be a long way away. I thought I was far enough away ..... then you hear that awful 'scrape' sound. A bit of proggressively finer sandpaper and you can't really see it unless you are looking. 'The first cut is the deepest'. It's only sheet metal and plastic. Can't worry about it.

Wow, I looked on CL this morning and saw this thread, and I got into an accident. Lady flew by me when I was backing out of a spot and my bumper has some long scratches and some deep gashes.

Does anyone know if small chips on the windshield will eventually spread and make my entire windshield crack?
if the chip is not that big, it should be pretty safe.....post a pic !

Well said, the first one always hurts the most, but as long as there is no huge dent or structural damage, I sort of chalk it up to the first "battle scar" and move on.

It's bound to happen sooner or later, or you just leave the car in your garage.

Thin scratch on the driver's side seat from my house keys, when I hooked them up onto my belt loop, and just sat down.

Scratch in the rear bumper from some blind, heartless jerk with a shopping cart, but this is not noticeable thanks to my car's awesome color (SGM).

One tiny tiny rock chip from running over these pebbles near a construction site...the pebbles travelled over my windshield and roof...but no other scratches.

I think what amazes me the most, is the very wealthy people that drive luxury cars, and park ANYWHERE! A lot of them seem to think nothing of it other than they want to drive luxury, but hey, it's still a car and it's gonna' get thrashed.

Not me man.

One small crack/chip on the windshield, one small scratch/mark on the rear bumper, and two small scratches on the left taillight.

I did the latter two myself.

HOLY CRAP!!!

Do you know who did it? I can only imagine the heartache you probably had when you saw that for the first time.

I hope you get it fixed soon.

If it's really bad, at least you have a reason to get your car custom painted a new color...
