GENIUS body work

You will recall that we got ourselves a (new to us!) Silver Subie back in August, and naturally, since the car was so gorgeous, some assh*le did a hit and run on it when it was parked on the street shortly thereafter. If we are talking severity, 10 being the car was totaled, 1 being hardly noticeable, it was a 1.2 Noticeable and highly irritating in a new (to US!) car. Dang! I am sure that Santa gave that anonymous person half a lump of coal for Christmas and likely the Easter bunny pooped in their basket.
OK, the wife thought an advertising magnet would cover it up, and I was thinking of having a body shop bang it more or less flat then paint flames on the car. I still may do that, but first, for now, check it OUT. If you know online printers vistaprint, then you know they email you every day. When I saw 'free car magnet!' it was time. Looking TRES GOOD eh? The wife = genius.

that's very cool! i was going to do that when i was selling real estate. here is my un-asked for advice: i was told to be really careful with it...be sure to clean under it often so it doesn't scratch your paint. i don't remember everything else they said but i am sure you can google it.

....of course, the paint is already scratched....but YES, i should do the windex thing often :)

amigo, that's ingenious, i should probably get myself one because it won't be long before the occasional dings and dents appear

Lori Buff said...

Brilliant. I'll be interested in seeing how many people purchase pottery from you because of it.

Hilary said...

Good idea. Did you order a second one for when that one gets stolen? ;)

Awesomeness.

Yay Maude!

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

That's what I call a win-win!

I think that magnet officially makes your car a tax write off! I don't actually know what a write off is, but I know they are good and people want them.

Good idea, Maude!

Awesomeness!

This wouldn't work for me though because I never just end up with a little ding in my door - My cars always ends up totaled out.
