I've done exactly that for years. I've had a heap parked right on top of me when I've returned. It's amazing the number of dorks loose on the streets.

I too feel your pain DirtyDuc83.

OP, bummer on the damage. I understand the feeling as I had my previous vehicle receive similar damage at an airport valet parking facility two days after I got it back after a month of driving a rental from getting $26K of damage repaired from a "sandwich" accident. Parking lots, no matter what kind, are sadly fraught with risks...and people too often drive through them like they are super highways.
I have this installed...of course they missed it and instead hit the unprotected corner...figures. I parked in the widest/deepest spot, and that still didn't save me. Safe nowhere! Wouldn't have minded coming out to my car to see them with a portion of their bumper pulled off.

They're in Totem Lake just off 124th so pretty close to you. I've had work done there several times over the years. Including a very small patch job similar to yours on one of my brand new cars that was hit and run as well.
Thanks Copefree, I am actually going to be heading that way to drop off the GFs car for detailing at the car toyz up there tomorrow morning. I'll swing by and get a quote.

Re: Got hit and run today! WTF!

Just wanted to say sorry for your pain. I've had this happen to previous cars (not the GC). Nothing more annoying than some jerk damaging your ride that you spend so much money on and so much time taking care of.

Hope you get everything resolved in a way that makes you happy again!

I've heard good things about them too, but don't have any experience with them. Queen City in Redmond did a great job on my wife's car, so you might give them a shot too.

Re: Got hit and run today! WTF!

People can suck sometimes. While I realize accidents happen, do the right thing! Very sorry that this happened.

Thats the part that pisses me off the most...I'm sure they knew they hit my car....but rather than do the right thing and leave their info, they just take off.

Re: Got hit and run today! WTF!

There's a lot of people out there that just don't know what personal responsibility means. It's really pulling our culture down. They screw up, and don't give it a second thought, too much trouble. My next door neighbor's daughter actually ran into my house when she was pulling up their driveway. Just about knocked me out of my chair. When I went out she was getting out of her car, so I asked her why she ran into my house while I pointed out the damage to her car. She completely denied it say the car had already been damaged. I walked over to my house and pulled the side molding from her car out of my aluminum siding. She sheepishly said she didn't notice hitting my house. This is what is happening every day out there. Sad.

Right on, come back and update what the quote is - I'd be curious to know.

Re: Got hit and run today! WTF!

Dude that blows. Like others have said already, some people really do suck. Classic line from Pulp Fiction went something like this... "if I could have caught the guy that did it, it would have almost made up for him doing it".
Good luck getting it cleaned up.

Re: Got hit and run today! WTF!

So...I decided to take my chances using the touch up paint the dealer gave me when I purchased my Jeep.

Worked decently...I'm going to put a couple more layers on it over the next couple of days, then take some rubbing compound to it and smooth it out. Should help remove some of the other marring to the pain in the areas that were rubbed. Not too noticeable if you are a few feet away. Excuse the dirt...was planning to give it a good wash today but we are back to rain up here for the next few days.
