I'm not the type of person who whines about someone kicking a Tesla bumper because that person was having a tantrum. If they keyed, it... that's another story.

I shoot for perfect that way I can usually accept the results when it doesn't come out perfect.

I am not as forgiving If some one kicked or keyed one of my cars.

Well if someone kicked anything other than the bumper or tires, sure good reason to get peeved.

A bumper can take abuse, not going to hurt anything except a telsa fanboy's wittle Fewings. A rock kicked up on the highway, or hitting a sampling at 5mph would do more damage to a bumper than someone kicking a bumper. I'd just laugh.

who says spend 400 on new fenders when you can just build them.
