Jus took another look at it since it has dried off. Not good. Looks kind of like that one, Saveaux. Fortunately, I've got a buddy that runs just such a company. Hopefully he'll give me a deal.

Sorry
Have seen paintless dent repair do wonders for that

Ouch ... it just hurts to look at it.

That sucks, man. Sorry. Mine got caught in softball-sized hail in 2016. It was not fun.

Maybe part of the deal will be that he can get to you before next hail season.

Sorry to see that. It missed us over here in Fort Worth, but my SKY stays in the garage when I'm not driving it.

Likewise. I drove it to church yesterday evening though. Bad choice.

Could be worse. My hood and quarterpanel had chunks of paint the size of my fist knocked off. PDR doesn't work so well when there's no P left.

But, technically, isn't that still paintless? ;)

Time to buy a car cover w/hail protection.

At least two of them. Normally, the Sol wouldn't have been out in bad weather ... but this was not expected and it was bright and sunny up until this thing blew in. However, I have two other vehicles that live outside that my kids drive. So they might start being stored under those covers. Smart design ... and the cost is a lot less than getting cars fixed after a storm.

-------

So back to the Sol ... looks like I'll be needing some new rear light housings. Anyone have a pair for sale?

I'm thinking this one might be a bit more protective ...
