Re: Got hit and run today! WTF!

Looks really good, especially considering what it looked like right after the hit. Few more coats and I'd try to forget about it. Barely noticeable, especially if you're not looking for it.

Re: Got hit and run today! WTF!

I definitely feel for you. I'm extra careful about keeping my GC from an area where it can get bumped by others in a parking lot. I'm borderline OCD about it. You can only imagine the colorful words that are mumbled under my breath as I leave Target, Best Buy or any store for that matter and head over to my car which I park waaay on the other side of the lot where there wasn't a car within 600 feet of me only to find my car surrounded buy cars parked all around me with TONS of empty spots closer to the store. Then the inevitable breath holding as I walk closer and casually inspect the car for any damage. I drive off saying things that no one under 18 should ever hear!

Good luck!

Re: Got hit and run today! WTF!

Wow, what a coincidence. Maybe a week or so ago someone hit an ran me. It was actually in my work parking ramp... for an insurance company. They got me on the passenger's front bumper. It was mostly scuffing and clear coat damage. Most of it buffed right out, but you can still see some abrasions.

I backed into a fence post while moving this week (an unlucky week, I know), and I also used the Mopar touch-up paint. It was actually in the same exact area. I probably need to go do another layer or two, because it's not even with the rest of the paint. I'm not sure how much I really want to pursue it... I haven't gone to the body shop to get an estimate yet.

Re: Got hit and run today! WTF!

Long load laws vary from state to state. In Connecticut, you must have a red flag with an area of at least 12 square inches if the load extends more than four feet beyond the back of your vehicle/trailer.

Re: Got hit and run today! WTF!

Is this something that a clear bra would have prevented?

Well...they hit me hard enough to rub off the paint and marr the plastic underneath, so I dont think clear bra would have helped. Cost of fixing a clear bra and paint would probably cost more than just fixing the paint in this situation.

I plan to get a quote for the 3m clear bra on he rear bumper, i will ask if the scuff would be prevented.

Re: Got hit and run today! WTF!

Had a very similar incident happen to me on the left rear bumper. I was stopped at a red light. He was behind me and tried to go around me but didn't have enough room. Clipped the bumper and sped off.

I used the touch up paint and rubbing compound. The repair looks similar to yours. Is it perfect? No. But it's good enough. Easy to spot up close if you're looking for it, but near impossible to tell from any distance.

Yah, not noticeable unless looking for it. Just gonna leave it touched up and call it a day. Might replace the reflector though. The damage to it is more noticeable than the paint.
