I learned the hard way not to try and fit into a space you don't think you'll fit.

Weird thing is.. I usually fit in them pretty well, but just now, I scraped up against a honda accord and got some paint from him on my bumper.. interestingly, the accord didn't get any of my paint (goes to show honda paint is better? lol) So how much does it run to get the bumper painted?

if your just worried about your bumper, his paint should buff off with some polishing compound and a lil elbow grease. his bumper will need paint work, probably $125

Got smacked into a few days ago while the car was parked outside my house. Just scraped paint on the bumper and broken taillight assembly.

My guess to repair your bumper is about $200, but I'm not sure how much the taillight assembly is.

Insurance said I needed a new quater panel (it barely had a scratch) but the repair guy said he'd just touch the quarter panel up (the scratched part is covered up by the taillight anyways) and he'd knock a decent amount off the estimate (which was $750). So now my deductable will be about $30 instead of $200. Which I'm all for.

If you have a trade school close by you with a Auto Body class look into that. They would repaint my rear skirt for $75 which isn't bad and the teacher would paint it himself. But yeah you have to search around and ask.

Oh man, I'm soooo pissed.

I was driving to my friend's house as I was leaving school tonight, and I'm just driving along in my own lane and this lady next to me in the fast lane decides she MUST get over and cut me off. She puts her blinker on and I keep going, to pass her. She literally is right next to me trying to drive me off the road out of my lane or something. So I pull ahead of her and at the time I'm practically past her, she keeps veering into me and hits my rear quarter panel. PISSED ME OFF!!!

We pulled over and exchanged insurance info, even though it's only a scrap that has removed a bit of paint, no real structural damage at all.

I have the 10 dollar Nissan touch up paint I got at the dealership, but I don't want this to stick out and not blend in with the factory paint. Should I go ahead and touch it up, or look into getting it repaired at a place, what do ya think?

And yes, I had a good laugh right when I looked at the poster of this thread and then the title of it as well.

hey.. accidents happen to everyone. The fact that I've had this car 3.5 yrs and no graveyard for me says alot.. especially considering my stock RE92s were teh suck and almost killed me 2 yrs ago.

I need my body kit ASAP. This Integra clipped my front end. I lost my front lic holder and my 15 buck custom plate. You can't even tell what color it was in some areas its down to the factory black. Stupid azz cut in front of me too damn close.
