Birdy 1, Maxwell 0

Bummer last night, we backed Birdy into Maxwell while putting her back into her parking spot. If it wasn't for the fact that we've gotten pretty good at panel replacement, we'd be more upset...not too bad, but enough to ruin our day and share a few choice words!

Surprised it hasn't happened before - it's such a tight spot...Ouch!

Such a great looking panel at that! Well, it least it will be brand new aluminum. Sorry for the dent, but now you have a new story to tell.

Sorry to hear of your mishap. It sounds as though it was bound to happen though. Guess you guys need a larger parking place.

Scars add character, you could just leave it . . . . . . Naaa, I know, it would drive me crazy too.
BTW, are missing a lug nut, . . . on your wheel?
