Plastidip fiasco

My results have been so good my friend wanted help doing away with all the chrome on the outside of her new JCW Mini- the head and taillights trim and upper and lower grille trim. We removed all the pieces and over the course of a couple hours, sprayed many thin coats on and they were looking exceptionally good. I learned a lot from from doing my rims.

So everything was on the sidewalk in front of the house- I live on a backstreet with hardly any traffic and almost no foot traffic- normally quiet.
I was on the last coat- and hear commotion, look up and here comes a huge Cane Corso and a pit bull puppy- they trample all over top the pieces... Then I see 2 six year old boys chasing the dogs. I'm frantically screaming at them 'no no no no stop!!' but they obliviously trample the pieces too, leaving foot prints and ripping dip off several pieces. I screamed at them some more- trying to explain what they did and why I was upset.

The little idiots get their dogs and trample my pieces AGAIN heading back up the street. Itwasa miracle they didn't break anything. I hate my neighborhood sometimes. 2 hours of work gone. Took us into today to finish! The Mini looks great though

Sweet about getting the mini done. Pics?

I would have gone crazy if they all ran over our stuff we just sprayed. Eek. Probably would happen too since we live on a cul de sac with tons of kids and dogs. Oh man...
