    So, I am wondering- as I stare at the numerous scratches and dings on the quarter-panels of my truck that I got from parking next to people who don't respect other people's property, I wonder if anyone has figured out a cheap way to get these dings out.

    I know- it's a truck, but honestly I don't care. I didn't do them. If I smashed my truck off a tree branch or ran over a pedestrian, I would be PROUD of that damage! -But every time I look at it, I think of how much I wish I would have realized it was there at the time I would have smashed back a lil' bit...

    Anybody gots any tricks? :D

    I tried this dry ice trick I saw on youtube for a laugh; didn't work. HOWEVER, it was a lot of fun to put the remaining dry ice in a half-full water bottle and twist the lid on real fast... There's still hunks of plastic all over my yard.

    Some jackass scuffed up my rear 1/4 two days ago. I'm not sure how it happed but it looks like something hit it with an upward swing. It knocked part of the bed plastic trim off.
