So aggravated!

So today as I was cruising around and going to get frozen lemonade, I encountered an oddly shaped hill driveway trying to leave the lemonade place. Well this stupid driveway decided to scrape up my mach 1 chin spoiler and now the bottom of it is all rough! Now I know to never try going down a steep driveway again! Has something like this ever happened to you guys?

Yea man especially if ur lowered. It happens. But luckily it's the flexible material that can take it.. Just take a breath and get a sanding block. It'll smooth it out.. I know the feeling tho. Makes me sick when it happens

Thank god I'm not lowered, I probably would have ripped my bumper off! That kind of just changed my mind about ever lowering my car as long as I live in this city!

If it makes you feel better I can't make it out of my driveway without gently scraping my chin spoiler. No matter how hard I try. I just figure I'm low enough most people can't see the rough edge underneath.

I scraped mine tonight, don't know how bad yet. But lowering is fine you just need to learn to take things at angles.

Happened to me the other day, but I'm used to taking them at a good angle from driving our corvette. Those things are not friends with any types of bumps or steep driveways.

Happens to me everyday going on base. The security devices at the gate love the bottom of my car. I'm lowered on Eibach springs.
