2nd dint....
« on: December 05, 2009, 04:58:35 pm »
my previous car i never had a stone chip, never had a dint, never had mindless damage caused by morrons..... but since iv had the abarth (1 year now) iv got 2 dints, one which took the paint off on my bonnet which was caused by one of these so called morrons, the other iv found today on my roof of all places :S aside from that iv got a ton of stone chips on the front end. iv also had a cracked windowscreen.

i guess this thread is more a rant than anything but its so blood annoying, i have had crap luck with this car reguards the exterior... i hate to imagion it in 3 years time!!!

oh well rant over

    Hope you feel better now mate, gave mine a quick clean today as it was filthy and notice the first chip, tiny it is and on the bonnet. To be honest I think I have done pretty well so far. 3500 miles and my first chip.

    How did you get a dent in the roof?
    If its not broken the paint then get dent wizard to have a look. Its only about £50 a panel :thumb:

    i have no idea john i came back to the car after going shoping to find it, its near the spoiler.... dont know what has done it :S its certainly not damaged the paint though so that is a plus.

    i take it they would have to remove the roof lining though to do it John?

    They just loosen the lining close to the dent and go it with long tools. It quite painless ;D
