One more thing...Do NOT get the "Scratch Out" stuff on any of the black, plastic trim! It WILL turn it white permanently!Has anyone done something to where your heart sinks deep into your stomach? That happened to me yesterday. It's odd really, because in all the years I owned an old Camry wagon, nothing happened to it, but as soon as you get a brand new vehicle, things, or in this case, stupid things happen.
I had my new CR-V parked in the carport. Yesterday morning, I decided to take my old no-defrost freezer out to the front of the driveway in the sun to defrost it. I thought, no problem, lots of room to get it out the door and down the driveway. Normally one could manage that without issue, but then again, we are dealing with a clumsy bonehead. Instead of moving the car, I decided to leave it where it is. Everything was going well, but with a lack of skill, I sort of lost control and bang, the bloody freezer makes contact with the driver's side rear door. I hope the neighbors were all inside, because I came out with a few choice colorful metaphors. I'm standing their dumbfounded, angry with my heart down in my gut. The old $hit box that I had owned, I do nothing too, but now that I have a brand new vehicle . . .
It's minor damage, but still, it's upsetting all the same. So now I have to come up with some serious $$ to get it properly sorted, or come up with some way to make it look decent without having a body shop repaint the whole door. I guess I'll have to bite the bullet in these difficult financial times and get it done. Any suggestions car buffs?

Now you personally know a bonafide bonehead. 🙄
