So this guy who hates me for no reason keyed my car this morning/last night. He wrote "Fuck U" on the part of the body right under the rear hatch glass, and then just keyed every panel except my front bumper, back bumper, and top panel. It's pretty deep, down to the metal. I'm guessing there's only one solution, and that's to give it to a body shop and have them sand and re-paint? Anyone know how much that runs? And does anyone know if there are any temporary solutions I can put on the metal to stop rusting, b/c this might not get resolved until after summer, because the fucker went home today from college.

Man, that is really horrible. I am so sorry to hear about your car.

Ever seen Pulp Fiction? Remember what John Travolta said about people who mess with cars? So true.

Sadly enough, you are looking at a repaint. You may be able to find a shop that can airbrush and wetsand the scratches, but from what you have described, it is a repaint.

Sorry again. Hard to think rationally at times like this, but just remember that it is just a car.

No need to retaliate, he will get his in the end.

I did file a report, but that doesn't mean he'll get caught. Fortunately, the cops said that this was some serious stuff, because, since I'm Asian, they can classify it as a hate crime (The guy who I think did it has a history of hate). I guess I'll take it to Gary Force and see what they quote me.

No matter what you do, you need to file a report with the police and get your insurance involved. This is especially true if you know who did it.


Edit: Heh, just saw your new post. Good luck catching him.

I would kill somebody for that...seriously. If I ever found the person, I would go to jail. I get irrational thoughts sometimes...and you don't **** with other people's cars period. Expecially mine :flame:

BTW I'm very sorry to hear that dude. That's a horrifying story :(

Wow. So crimes committed against nonwhites are automatically hate crimes?
:confused:

I don't want to get into the situation, but yes, in this case, it is possibly a hate crime. It wasn't "automatically" one. There's a difference between scratching a car and etching hateful words into it, especially since this guy has a history of hate. He posted a letter in the international dorm that wasn't very cool, and attacked general groups of people.

Hate is not cool.

First off, if you know who did this then maybe you can inform the police and maybe they can get him to confess some how. Or to incriminate himself. Then you wouldn't have to shell out the money for something that wasnt your fault. Think it over first!! Or go get him good too.... :dontknow:

Yea...whats that all about. What if a minority comites a crime against a white....is that a hate crime? Well lets not get on that topic, its a site for RSX lovers, not a criminal justice class! :firemad:

I feel your pain, and that shit sucks. I went home during christmas break for a month and I left my RSX with my friends and they watched over it. Parking is outside and the night I got back I saw a line from the front to the rear of my RSX. From driver side door all the way past the gas door. I looked at my friends and they didn't notice it all and thought it was already on there when i showed it to them. How can you not notice that, especially on a Black type S. I was f'n pissed. I don't know who did it but the best I could do was wash the car and use touch up paint until I can afford to get it repainted, the touch up up didn't look all that good but its the best I could do. Good luck with yours.

So sorry about your car~!

The only solution it to take it to a pro. In the meantime, please, please, fill up the areas with touch up paint (can be purchased from your Acura or Honda dealer if they make your color, comes in a bottle and some dealers have touch up pens) so the panels don't rust. This is especially important if you aren't able to fix it right away.

Cost is gonna be pretty steep.
What's a good shop? $250US per panel? It's about $400 CDN.

So figure $250 / panel
1 trunk
2 & 3 quarterpanel
4 & 5 doors
6 & 7 fenders
8 hood

$2000 US? Shitty deal. Comprehensive insurance covers it. And you can sue the guy for the repair costs. I'm not sure how it works there. Sometimes the insurance company handles getting money from the vandal, I think that's how it's done here. Not sure about your system.
