Parking lot curb stops and repetitive stupidity
I am just really angry with myself! Never had a vehicle that sits as low as the SRT. From day one i have been battling curb stops and really any larger dips, uneven terrain leaving/entering parking lots etc...
I must have told myself a hundred times to back in or don't pull up too far! Been about 6 months with no incidents...Friday night i pull up too far and immediately hear it. I try to back up a little bit and the sound of my car being destroyed is killing me. I get out thinking maybe 190 less lbs will raise it enough to clear...no luck.
Bottome line is that this is the worst damage yet. The whole front underbody is now deformed and where it caught hangs about an inch from the ground. I try to manipulate the plastic back into place but it bounces back.
New fascias are about a grand + paint. I keep thinkingking maybe 'Mopower' will produce his, that could be a making a good out of a bad situation. Not sure if or when or how much though...
It's really just the underside, so doesnt particulary need a replacement nor do i want to shell out the dollars if it's unnecessary. Wondering if anyone has ideas/solutions for a cheap fix? Im thinking if i somehow heated the plastic it could then be maneuvered back into place?
