Crunch :-(

While backing out of the garage, and watching out for Garfield the cat (who happened to be sitting at the edge of the driveway), I had my head turned so that I could keep an eye on the cat, and not so much towards the passenger side of the car, when all of a sudden I heard a horrible crunch!

I thought for sure I had run over one of the kids bikes, toys, skateboards, or any of the myriad of kids junk that often cocoons my car into what is left of my parking stall any given day.

When I turned back to see what had happened, I instinctively looked into my passenger side view mirror, and noticed...

I was in a hurry, so I had to drive off with the mirror "as is", but when I returned home, I unplugged the power cord, and taped up the gaping hole left in the side of the car.

No, that is not "duct tape"... Well.. It's sort of "duct tape" - it's metal tape. A thin sheet of aluminum with very, very sticky adhesive! It is used to patch, fix or repair metal ducts!

Now, that I have a temporary solution in place, I'll have to start scouting around for a replacement mirror.

U-Pull-R-Parts, here I come! Hey Bill, do you want to come???

  1. What's wrong with duct tape? Check out the passenger side window of my Grand Am next time you see it in the lot!

    We might even be able to find that front left parking light assembly that is cracked too!

    Plus I could always find something for the 'burban!
