    Default Drove into a pot hole :(

    [IMG][/IMG]

    I was dropping my sister off at an exercise place tonight, and the place has a gravel carpark with a bit of a dip going into it.
    Fell in a pothole hidden in the gravel, and scraped the front splitter


    I'll see how bad it is tommorrow, and see if I can repair it with a small respray rather than full respray.

    Does anyone recommend a HARD setting laquer for front end body panels? to reduce stonechips etc?

    From an experience my Dad had I understand that the owner of the road (or council if a public road) is liable when pothole is deep enough to cause damage. Might be worth a check
