Pure scum

Postby Plantjuk » Sun Jan 08, 2017 12:50 pm

Come out to wash the car this morning and use my new auto finesse essence wax to find this. Not sure when it happened but they have obviously just driven off. Not many things push my buttons but about 2hrs ago I was raging! I know it's not the end of the world but I look after my car and work hard so that I can enjoy such a machine for some dishonest tosser to do this. It's just topped off a shitty week for me!Image

Sorry to see that.

It's shocking how often this happens. Hopefully somehow you'll find the culprit.

If it happened last night when we went out for some food I know they have cameras so I'm going to contact them later.

Mother fishers. Really annoys me when people won't take responsibility for their own actions.

Their dishonesty is what's made me angry more than anything. Everyone makes mistakes but just own up. I really hope i catch them just so they can't get away with it. I guess it could of been much worse though and my bumper could be hanging off.

It's definitely not been done by me and the Mrs wouldn't just leave it for me to find if she'd done it.

On the bright side, that looks like it will definitely improve (a lot) with a quick polish. Something like G3 compound hand applied should remove 90% or more of the marks.

I would do that first, then assess what remains.

I had a similar scrape mark a while back, after a quick wipe with G3 all that remained were 2 small marks about the size of a 1p coin. Still required paint to completely fix, but looked much better while I was waiting for the paint shop appointment.

Getting better - but seriously, get some G3, pretty sure you can pick it up from Halfords / Eurocarparts for £20.

Most of what I can see in that picture is light surface scrape / paint residue from the other car - It will come right off with the correct product.

Scummy pieces of crap!!!!

I'd hate that to happen to me mate. Fingers crossed you find the culprit and they can get done for leaving the venue of an accident

It's right through the paint in quite a few areas.

Yeah. Seems to be down to the plastic. Some patches are black and I know the primer is a light colour cos of all the stone chips on the front.

OP that's really sh!tty. :?

Are you considering front and rear motion sensor dashcams at all? Might help to catch potential future offenders.
