Default GRRRR Door Ding!!!

Last night, some giant F250 SuperDuty Monster Pickup parked next to my Saab in the parking garage. The passenger must have opened his door right into the side of my car, leaving a bright white mark and a bit of a dent. Because the truck is so huge, the mark is high up on the side, behind the rear door on my car....GRRRRRRR. I hate big trucks, and the inconsiderate people that dent my innocent car! (My car's paint is far from perfect because the former owner seemed to not care very much, but this ding is big!)

I happened to have my digital camera with me and I left a note, I want to go after this guy. Here are some pics:

BTW, anybody have experience with going after door dingers?

Some moron opened his door righ into my car one day ... with my wife sitting in the car!

Needless to say, she was out of there really fast and the guy didn't even blink an eyelash!
Fortunately, there wasn't even a mark.

There are places that will remove that with the paintless dent removal system...Dent Wizard is nationwide so you can try them...If you were local I would have you go and see my boyfriends father who does it. Sorry to hear your pain though.

And the guy had the nerve to leave the truck there after he injured your Saab. I have rarely been able to catch them.

The last time it happened to me they left a crease right in the middle of the drivers door above the door guard. So every time I get in the car I have to see it. Well I always have my Leatherman with me and some how that so and so had two tire valves missing when I left. I wonder if liked how low his car was sitting in front when he returned?

well i have had a few doors hit my car, none leaving much of a mark, except for one... i was sitting in the IN THE CAR and this black truck pulls up, some redneck gets out and dings my door, i got out and started yelling and generally being an *** 8) he got back in the car, the driver did likewise and they relocated to the very end of the parking lot. THankfully the dent didnt do anything to the paint and the dent isnt that bad, still im gonna have to fix it...eventually, im just kinda broke now

as for your car and that douche, i would have done a 360degree key to that redneck american garbage...thats just me tho, thats what you should get for driving such a big vehicle so carelessly
