Is it normal???

long time no post, sorry to everyone who needs to know everything about my car.

anyways, everytime i look at my car, i notice new dings, dents, and rust holes. is this normal? I think i need a doctor or something because this is starting to scare me. Today i notices a large gash, like a 1 1/2 foot long dented scratch that i have never noticed before. And yesterday I noticed a large dent in the drivers side door. now i know no one would sabatoge my project, but are the car demons chasing me?

I need a psyciatrist or something.

Alex

Well, the way this board has been the past few days, it wouldn't surprise me if it were Trolls (lol).

The sudden appearance of rust does not surprise me, but the dents, scratches and gouges? Sounds like a classic case of "toomanybikesotosis".

I see your only 16, do you have any younger brothers or sisters that ride bikes? Or even live in an apartment complex where kids my ride by your car? I have four kids (2,7,9,14). Needless to say, I have not put much money into my paint jobs. I'll wait until the bikes are no longer around (lol).

HRk,We were about to send mounties out to haul your butt back for questioning. Where have you been? What have you been doing? I don't want to hear it! GO TO YOUR ROOM! When you think you have an answer I want to hear then you may come out to discuss it.

Good to have you back.

Hey Alex,

I missed you at BTT50's. Were you there?

Oh, and the dent and scratch thing...there are a finite number of dents and scratches in the world. Every time MartinSr or BarryK take a dent OUT of a car, it has to, by the laws of physics, appear IN someone else's car. You are simply the victim of quantum physics (or B.S. - whichever you prefer).

Yeah didnt Einstein state that nothing can dissapear or be created? It all stays in the universe in one way or the other...makes sense. Now if only a barn fresh '32 Ford would pop into my garage when the original owner died and his children put it away to rot...

get a sharpie, and circle all the trouble spots you find. that way, you;ll know what you need to work on, and will be able to spot "new" dings,,,, but, keep in mind, the more time you spend on it, the more stuff your going to find to fix, that's why projects are never finished.

fwiw, when i thought i had my shtuff straight, i shot my sealer, and then i noticed a whole new batch of shtuff to straighten. you want perfection, your going to hafta work for it little brotha.

Trolls again eh, is it the same infamous a-hole as last time, or did he spawn a new breed of broodlings?

I'm working my tail off on this body work, trial and error kinda stuff. If i get a moment i'll definatly upload some pictures.

cboy, I looked for you opn Saturday Afternoon but i didnt see the truck, or the other panel either. You were near the water tower right?

We were over on the street farthest to the east - the one that runs parallel with Snelling. Right by the crafts center. Anyhow, sorry we missed each other.
