What does this look like to you?

Post by Squibby » Wed Jan 10, 2018 1:59 pm

Hey guys I know it’s off topic so remove if not allowed.

Drive my van around for work all week and just noticed this on the rear wheel arch passenger side ? ImageImage

I don’t know if someone has reversed and hit my van or something flew up and hit it but to me looks like someone has hit it ?
Noticed the car next to where I park At Home has some white paint on his front bumper maybe he hit it as he was reversing out ? Image

Ah man unlucky :( Whatever it is that hit you I don't think it's the car you pictured. That's barely got a scratch and yours is stoved in.
Possibly someone with a trailer may have backed into you? Bet the bar stewards didn't leave any details. Hope you get to the bottom of it .

Looks like a hard point contact, tow-ball is a good shout or a van's step possibly?

Cheers guys and no obviously no details left just very weird as makes me think have I hit something or something flew up and hit as I was driving but I’m sure I would know if I did and I know I haven’t hit anything

Looks like the marks are on an angle, which could rule out the most common car to van scrape? A towinghook with a cover over it would not scratch, but seems a bit high for a towing hook. My first idea was bush/stick kinda thing. Not sharp enough to scratch, not strong enough for a sharp crease.. but enough for that. Could explain the ang
le too, or is that the photo?

Yeah I see what you mean but im sure I would have heard something hitting my van if it was that and the dent goes in then out then back in again ?

Couldn't tell if it's audible, never had it myself. But it always makes me wonder when people find their car damaged, without a note.. if you could really tell with a modern, quiet car and radio on.

Can't really see the in/out/in on the photos but it sure sounds like a peculiar dent..
