About a week and a half ago, I had a battle of glares with a garbage truck as I was rounding a blind corner leading into my parking lot. I was already into the turn, but garbage truck kept moving toward my car (it was heading for the dumpster which I had already pass, so we were nose-to-nose). Being that I did not want the front end of my car trashed, I pulled as far over as I could so bignastygarbagetruck could go past me, but in the process I scraped the passenger side of my car against one of the wooden, painted support posts of the fence. I ended up with a dent in the rear passenger door, some deep scrapes in the fender over the tire, and lots of paint transfer. along both passenger side doors, some below the line of molding, a lot above it.
I was pretty bummed about the damage, but I can't afford to have bodywork done right now. I decided that I would go out on a nice but cooler day with a stool and some car polish to buff out what I could of the paint transfer.
Yesterday afternoon, I was headed toward the car to go run some errands. It was very sunny out, so I thought that was why I couldn't see the large whitish streaks along the two doors. Then I took a close look - all of the paint transfer above the molding had been buffed out! The only person I'd told about this incident was my BF, and he swears he didn't do it. I believe him - not only is he heat-intolerant, but he is also very averse to making the >40 minute drive from his house to mine.
So someone took the time to make my damage look better, and I don't know who. Made my week.
