Some pics from my camera. Colors are off because I used picasa and it's making pictures way too dark when I shoot in RAW. I'm too lazy to fire up Lightroom right now

Great pictures and thanks again for coding. Oh, and thanks for talking me into the complete windshield wiper option - it actually came in handy last night.

That was by far the coolest meet I have ever been to. I cannot stop thanking Andrey for the coding and Rob for hosting and helping me with the reflectors.

As BostonE90 mentioned, it's only noticeable on throttle. It's quiet enough for daily driving but louder than before. Cold starts sound awesome now.

I love it so far, thanks again BostonE90!

Crap! Road debris!

On the way home from work and hot hit by a metal plate thing in the street. The piece hit my drivers side door and took out two deep gauges. Real deep scratches into the door. I see metal.

Can this be fixed without replacing the door?

Pics please.

Chances are the gouges will need to be filled, sanded, and resprayed. You might be able to get away with filling and blending the panel as opposed to respraying the whole thing if the damage is isolated to a small area. Pictures will tell everything.

That's horrible news!

The pot holes are extremely frustrating, as well as the random chunks of road from the pothole.


Sorry to hear man

Can't figure out how to upload an iPhone pic using the mobile site? I guess I'll fire up the computer.

No worries about the scratch. I'll just get it fixed. Just a bummer to have mint paint get touched up, but body shops can do magic these days.

here you go.. it doesn't look as bad in the pics, but its down to the metal. Do you think they can blend in the paint instead of repainting the whole door?

Yeah, that can definitely be filled and blended in. I'd recommend Phil Jr. at Sansossio Autobody in Natick for all body work. He's worked on a number of members cars and is a perfectionist when it comes to paint matching. Tell him Rob with the blue 335 sent you and he'll take care of you!

Or Pete from Yuppieracing... Phil is good with that shit... he may try to fill it and then wet sand it out

Got some feedback from Phil based on my pic and description and he believes that the door will need to be taken apart, cleared, painted at the affected area and then resprayed. Sounds like overkill. Plus the quoted price seemed a bit surprising.

Any thoughts?
