Jim at Phaze II is the absolute best, he has a long lead time, but my F150 is with him this week. He will get your Bronco back to new condition.It will be going to Phaze II Autobody in Westford, MA. My fear still is getting the rapid red a good match. On the large flat slab of a side the Bronco has. A mismatch on the door will stick out.
Ha! And I was worried about the holes from the front license plate before. Silly me.
Personally, I back into spaces all the time. For two main reasons:But do you mind if I ask why you back in?
I see people do this all the time and it kinda confuses me. Your car is now facing the opposite way of everyone else that parks head in. And I've noticed that it lines the car that is backed in more susceptible to damage, because it's not aligned with the other cars. i.e. your front doors are to the back of a car parked next to you. And now your mirrors are in the way of the car parked head in trying to open their back doors. And as we all know, who sits in the back of cars? kids. and now you've made it more complicated for a kid to get in & out of their door. Plus people getting to the front doors need to do some matrix moves to avoid your mirrors.
I'm generally just curious to why people do this, as I've never understood the reasoning behind it. In fact, when possible, I try not to park next to cars facing the wrong way. (maybe this is why you do it?)
That is not the type of response to somebody damaging a parked car I'd expect from a Vincent Vega avatar.Just pretend it’s a tree or a rock that hit it. Grab some sand paper and rough it up to make it look like you did something besides park at the end of a run.

It doesn’t look at all like a door ding, more like the OP’s Bronco was hit. It wouldn’t matter which direction you parked in all likelihood.that sucks man, and I'm sorry that happened to you.
But do you mind if I ask why you back in?
i back into spots when the spot is harder to get out of than in to. I also like to back in to spots when i'm parking facing a curb, though that is probably a relic of my pickup truck (bed overhang leaves less poking into the lot) and sedan (rear bumper has camera and usually more clearance than front bumper) driving days. On a bronco that second category really doesn't matter as there's tons of front clearance on a short vehicle (getting a 2dr myself) with similar front and rear overhang.But do you mind if I ask why you back in?
USPS vehicles carry no license plates and probably no annual state inspection - plus driver is on wrong sideI was near the outside edge of the lot. I'm not so sure they have any there. The place doesn't open until 7pm tonight. So I will call then.
I was also next to the edge of a US Postal Service. I will be calling them too but I'm not so sure they will be much help.
I do have the 360 cameras but unfortunately they don't do that. Luckily the rail saved the rocker panel.That really sucks and I am really sorry that happened to you. I would be pissed for days and every time I saw it. It will get fixed and it's another part of history for your legendary Bronco.
If the Bronco has 360 degree cameras, why couldn't they capture what happened? I am not sure how they work or if they work when the vehicle is off.
As a side, Thanks OP for testing the rock rails for the mall crawler crew You just didn't know you were helping others and it hurts...
