I never got a picture of my first damage, but my first trip to Katemcy my back end slid off a 2' ledge into a granite wall about 20' tall on Waterfall (with some help from my spotter
), I ended up with a tail light that looked exactly like Krazy's minus most of the body damage and the right side of my plastic bumper crumpled.
Replaced the tail light with some help of JR on here, replaced the bumper with a Rockhard from PhilD so it's all good.
Also have a little crease over the windshield from a low hanging tree branch - branch was only about 1/2" thick and I was crawling under it - just ultra thin sheetmetal. Woulda thought it would be stronger than that right there on the rounded part, but nope.
the others are just stupidity on my part...
got the dimpled cowl mod from not hooking up the limit strap on the door, the mirror just barely had to touch it to dimple it.
Got a dimple in the back door from pulling the trash wheeler up the driveway with my arm hanging out the window - once again, the slightest touch did it.
The only other dimple in the sheet metal was from when I built my hi-lift cowl mount. First time I mounted the jack, I turned the foot toward the windshield and that was a bad idea, slightest contact and dink - theres another dimple.
notice a running theme here?
the spongy metal does ok with broad impacts, but the lightest touch from a smallish object and it wrinkles.
Considering all the wheeling I've done, I've come away pretty clean (on top anyway - skids are a mess)
