Car keyed. Again.

Typical that it happens within a week of the Perth meet

It's on the wing and bonnet and thankfully not as noticeable as it'd be on a darker coloured car, but it's a rather big scrape and obvious it wasn't an accident. Just had to start parking RGZ in a different place due to yellow lines and this is my reward - I hate Paisley.

Tempted to fit a flame thrower to the car to deter idiotic, pathetic, low life, cowardly neds that don't have any moral care or thought of others. In fact, I wonder how much it'd cost to hire a sniper to protect my car :idea3:

an inverter for the battery to make up 240 volts and a cable attached to the bodywork may do the trick (make sure the off switch is remote though! lol)! I hate arseholes who do that to other peoples property! hope they get whats owed to them big style!

Hmm, interesting and if the police ask I could just say it was typical Fiat electrics

As I said, I'm not as raging as I would normally be simply because I will be getting the car resprayed. The bonnet already had some stone chips and a dent in it and that wing had a scratch. Just hate it becoming more and more beaten up, makes it look like a car that's done 100k miles, not 39k

Still though, makes me consider respray options which is always nice and expensive. Martyn already knows roughly what I have planned

It's taken so many hits, I've started to be slightly resigned to it. The bright side I'm looking on is that they didn't slash my tyre or break my windscreen, which does happen in Paisley.

Thanks for the sympathy, it's appreciated

The respray and bodywork is vaguely planned next year sometime, when I can afford it. Technically she needs a full respray, but I can maybe do some of the prep work to cut the costs - fill in and smooth some of the chips, dents and such. Plus, I'm still hoping to get out of retail in the coming months and into a place where my body panels don't get up close and personal with other people's. Never understood that either as I'm incredibly careful about whether my door rub strip even touches another car.

Would love to find another place to park near where I live, but most of if not all of Paisley is crap to park in. Unless I've got a more modern flat with a resident's car park then it'll probably happen again.

Since I plan on getting rid of RGZ sometime in 2011, the bodywork will probably be the last thing to get sorted after the induction, brakes, alloys and such. Unless I find a suitcase of cash under my sofa of course

Depends where you are in Paisley, but it is endemic throughout the region to be fair. It seems the morons in the Glasgow area associate any mods with neds and think it is fair game to key.

You imply that thought comes into the equation here mate!

I think these mindless tossers just go for gold. It must be like collecting club card points or something!
