    Had my first 'thing' with the TB this weekend. Backing up the Ext TB and tapped a pole behind the car that I didn't see. Did very little to no damage...everyone around me saw nothing on the car. But of course with my eye, it stuck out like a sore thumb. I'll give it a day or two then look again...but it definitely could have been ALOT worse!

    Let's hear about your first ding, dent or scratch!

    Sorry to hear about that. :-(

    Thus far, no accidents or scratches on my 2002. (quick, find some wood to knock on!). BUt at least you can now relax and know that your first one is behind you.

    First Accident or Scratch...

    Hey CkVin, how did that scratch come out? Still there? Did you get it out?

    What part was damaged? Just the bumper? Did you try to buff it out or was there noticable paintless areas?

    Now that I'm looking a few days later, there really isn't any damage there. The paint guy I'm seeing is for a few minor scratches that I've spotted around the car...nothing to do with my little fender bender!! LOL

    I'm still fortunate that there hasn't been anything major on the TB at all. In fact, there really isn't a scratch on the thing. Hmm, maybe I should be more parinoid???

    We've both got White TBs, it looks like a pretty easy color to match and touch-up.
