Sad day

So I went to pick up this:

And parked this on the street for literally the 5th day in the 4 years I have owned it:

Some jerk off seems to have backed into it and didn't have the balls to leave a note...really depressing. If anyone is looking for a project car and a bunch of parts keep an eye on the classifieds...sigh

Why not change the door if that's all that's damaged? Just unbolt it and put another one on.

amen on boboli's comments, looks like an easy fix... horribly frustrating & downright infuriating, but very very fixable.

it'll buff out! Smile

Yeah, I actually have another door in my garage...wrong exterior color though. Car does need a bit more work than just the door. It has been a reliable vehicle when I needed it though so I may end up swapping the door and putting it back in the garage as a spare vehicle...I dunno.

Sucks to see but the door had rust at the bottom anyway. Atleast it wasn't a perfect door that was hit and the damage doesn't look to have gotten into the 1/4 panel or fender. Trying to look at the bright's an easy fix.

If you get rid of it, just a few months to a year, you'll be filled with regret. It always happens that way.
