    [​IMG]Just leave the dent and tell everyone you did it on some nasty ol rock when you were wheelin it![​IMG][​IMG]

    I recently ran into the back of my wife's old Mustang (that she'd had since new) pulling into the driveway, wiped out her tail-lights. I couldn't even say I didn't see it, I just pulled up too far like a smart-ass[​IMG]. She still teases me about that one!

    About four years ago, I was driving home from work when-

    a) "Back in Black" by ACDC came on the radio, which of course made me reach over and turn up the volume

    and

    b) An apple rolled out of my lunchbag as I started to turn a corner just as I finished cranking the stereo, which caused me to reach towards the stray fruit......

    When all was said and done, I had mounted a center median and ripped a stop sign off it's mount, leaving a nice little dent in the front bumper as well as a cracked front air dam. Worst of all was the humiliation I experienced as 20 other drivers cheered and honked their horns!!!!!!!

    Anyhow, don't sweat it, bro!!!! Accidents happen everyday, and in about six weeks you'll be laughing at yourself instead of kicking yourself.

    And remember Paul's Words of Wisdom #43- "If that's the worst thing that's happened today, then I'm doing alright!!!!"

    Just leave it...scratches and dents give character[​IMG]
    I was backing up in an alley and ran into one of those huge residential dumpsters. You know, the ones that are like 4 feet tall with that hinged top, made of plastic, well, it was full and messed up all the paint on the back corner and broke my CB mount...again

    The story of the bashed in rear bumper goes like this ...

    Leaving a bar ( not drunk ), late one night. Walked up to my truck. In front of two very hot babes, no less. Started it up and backed right into one of those big lights with a huge concrete base.

    Man was that cool .........

    Don't swet it. Dents give an offroad vehicle character, like battle scars. Like mentioned earlier, in a few weeks you'll be laughing about the whole incident. - Jay

    One day we were cruising around in my dads blazer. We were at a stop sign and someone ran into us, they were probably going like 5 mph. Anyways our blazers our military and have the big pintle hook sticking out the back, well the poor fords grill isn't going to look the same. Crushed the thing to pieces, even as slow as it hit us. Thats when I knew I wanted a blazer. IN my old vehicle, a lowered nissan, that would of made the tailgate look pretty ugly!!

    Hmmm. Sounds like the problem is that your K5 is too low. If it was properly lifted you would have mowed down that BB pole like one of those little reflectors on the side of the road. SLAM DUNK.
