Had to pop up to Manchester today on business, and while passing some HGV's on the M6, I suddendly heard a almighty loud bang noise from the nearside, which I figured was some stone or whatever from the truck on my left.
When I came to check for any damage later, I found a good 3/8" chip down to the metal on the front passenger door smack in the middle, and 3 small ones near to it. It's the biggest chip I've ever had on any car I've owned. One might expect it if directly behind the waggon, but I think it could have been something like a small bolt or something which got deflected out towards my car, seems too big to be a stone chip... no dent fortunately.
Then on the way back this evening, I passed 4 grit waggons on the M6, so the car got well shotblasted, with a couple of small chips to the windscreen, even though I got as far from them as I could, but they were all in the middle lane so hard to avoid... ****** things.
I feel well pi**ed off. A job for chipsaway or to fix properly I think the door is going to need a respray. I'm not a happy bunny tonight.
I go to extreme lengths to make sure it's parked somewhere safe to limit risks of damage, and now this.
