    Hello,

    My first truck was a 1997 Ford F-150...but someone was looking out for me and had me slam my truck into a concrete divider in which gave me the option to upgrade to a Chevy :lol: yeah, driving in the pouring rain over 60 on the interstate is not a great idea. Hydroplaning is not fun and I don't plan on doing it again anytime soon haha.

    I bought my first GM vehicle after wreck, which was a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado crewcab. I loved it and enjoyed driving it but lost my job and had to trade it in for a used Jaguar....worst decision I ever made haha. To make a long story short, I now own a BLACK 2007 GMC Sierra Crewcab SLE. I should have learned my lesson with black vehicles when I purchased the Chevy...but something about a black vehicle that just looks GREAT.

    The clear-coat on my truck was chipping in one spot so I brought it in to have some warranty work done to it. They fixed the clear-coat but when doing so they got over spray all over my vehicle. So they used clay magic to remove all of the over spray which was fine until a few days later the swirl marks came up. They had buffed my BLACK truck with a high-speed buffer and did not do a good job of it at all. I tried to make them correct it but they said they were not going to re-paint it....I had them pay a guy $300 to remove the swirls and well they were gone for only a few days but returned. So now I am SOL and have no way of removing these swirls. Any suggestions???

    Haha thanks! Yeah, black vehicles are beautiful but a pain to keep up......too bad I let a moron buff on it....first mistake, shouldn't have done it and honestly if I knew he was using a machine to buff my truck, I would have not let him...

    :sign0016: My buddy has had all black trucks and loves them (Earnhart Fan, Sr) I stuck with the blue because Florida is a tough place to have a black truck. A good paint shop now a days will have a computer system that will mix and match the factory color exactly based on the VIN and the clear coat they use today is a lot harder than in the past. You might want to check with a Good shop.

    :rofl: yeah, I didn't do that but man it is so odd how when you're in an accident like that everything is in SLOW MOTION the whole time....it's very weird. When I finally stopped bouncing off the concrete divider I was facing oncoming traffic. NO ONE stopped to see if I was okay and when the state trooper got there he HONKED at me and motioned me to come back to his car in his dry car. Who cares if you have a broken leg or if you have something wrong....you come back here to me so I am comfortable and don't get wet from the rain. I was PISSED to say the least.

    I mean honestly if I saw another vehicle in the middle of the road facing the wrong direction I would stop and see if that person was okay not just fly past and honk like they did something wrong lol. It was insane. Went back the next day to see the damage on the wall....came within INCHES of going over the wall which would have been VERY bad haha.
