looks like a tiny shoe print. You just have hit a midgit. Sure am glad I put the mesh in there. Darn midgits.

Holy shit Batman! How the hell did that happen??? Looks like a freakin baseball hit it. No leaks or anything? Might need to look into a new.... what is that in front? The AC exchanger, or is that the radiator?

Did you pull any feathers or bady parts out of that? Ouch. I am going and getting mesh right now. Thanks.

I don't even know what part of the damn car I need to replace. I pulled no feathers out of it and never noticed anything hit me when driving. It might have been some stupid little brat who can't catch a baseball seeing as how i live in an aprtment complex. I'm moving to a condo with an attached garage in like 2 weeks too. Funny thing is, I have samples from customcargrills sitting right next to me and I couldn't decide which one to get. I was going to wait till I moved and had a good place to install stuff.
I guess it doesn't matter now.

Yea, not sure how expensive that is to replace, and I guess you can't claim a manufacturers defect... well, other than saying that it should be carbon fiber...

Sweet. I never use the A/C anyway. I'll just bend the splines back with a plug gapper to try and keep as much air flowing as possible.

lol, Glad that gave you a sigh of relief. I live in TX, I'd be almost as disappointed if that was a radiator. So you have no idea what that could've been that you hit? If that's the case I don't want to even consider looking at my radiator, no telling what condition mine is like :confused: Have you found any leaks? Good Luck

Would there be anyone that you know that would just come up and kick it? I mean, that's a huge dent to get without noticing it.

Due to the nature of my profession, I make a lot of enemies. It could have been some punk kid that wanted to be a jackass. Now I'm getting mad.

No leaks.

I think it will be ok. Just tell any one who asks, you hit a bird while racing someone. It sounds way tougher than the retarded kid not being able to catch a ball, well at least i think so.

lmfao, I agree. I bet I just sold a lot of grills today for someone.

I am ordering a grill from custom car grills and will be painting it black. I might buy another one and cut out the side vents eventually.
