Truck Keyed

Recommended Posts

Some ____ [cannot be named due to word filter] keyed my truck yesterday. My wife drove my truck to work, and parked in a pay lot. She's going to call the lot to try and see if anything can be seen from the security cameras (a friend of ours busted a guy for keying her car with the help of security cameras) and talk to our insurer.

I can't wait to get out of the cities. I don't get why someone would have to do that. This is my second vehicle I've owned in my life and both have been keyed within the first 6 months of ownership. In both cases the vehicle was 5 years old used. I'm not driving some Beamer that some jealous creep thinks is worth keying for no reason. The only thing a buddy and I could think of is some PETA nut didn't like my hunting and fishing stickers.

My question is, what can I do about touching it up? What insurance would cover it? The mark is from end to end and even went over the Z71 4X4 sticker on the rear end, so it would take more than a paint touch up.

I just hate senseless kraap like that. Sorry to hear about it.

Good luck on the camera thing, but I bet it's a long shot at best. frown

DC31,

Flipp'in Sticks, gosh darn it that sucks eggs frown.

Depending on how deep the scratch is, you can deaden the glare by polishing it or buffing it out.

Can you tell if it is threw the clear coat and into the paint? If so, is it threw the paint and into the primer? Or worse yet, down to the metal?

Makes you wonder what makes some people tick mad

But as far as the insurance goes I am guessing you will have to deal with your deductible.

Ugh....sorry to hear that Scott. I park my truck in a pay lot in downtown Mpls and every day I'm thankful it's still there first off and not damaged.

Like shack said, it all depends on how the scratches are.

I hear ya on the truck getting keyed....Worse yet was my old truck, someone went the extra step on that truck to take a regular screwdriver and do the passenger side of my truck, and actually creased the metal.....I put touchup paint on it, and then ended up someone hit that side about a year later, and got it taken care of at that time. Ended up with the whole side repainted.

That really made me wonder what I have nice things, when people are disrespectful and do things like that.

Its not just the cities. I had my Tahoe keyed at a public landing near Sartell, while I was out fishing. Not sure why...I wasn't parked close to anyone and I didn't do anything that might upset anyone while at the landing or in the boat that day. There were some teenagers just hanging out at the picnic table and my guess is that it was one of them.

Your comprehensive insurance coverage should take care of it. Sorry to hear about. I'd to like to get away from this rathole too. I live in a nice suburb and refuse to go into the "city" anymore. No reason for me to be there. Waiting for the real estate market to pick up and I'm headed for the woods.

$500 deductible. Wife parked in the far corner of the lot away from anybody else. The police haven't bothered getting back to us since we've filed the report. *sigh*

3 days after this happened someone scraped the front passenger bumper of our car and didn't leave a note so we will be doing touch up work on both the vehicles in this family unit.

    • I shoot 2 steel all season long in an improved cyclinder choke . Satisfied with that. Have a buddy who shoots Black Cloud 3's with impressive results.
    • I stopped at Lowes yesterday and got restocked at 9.88 per 18.6 lb double pack. No limit indicated.  
    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
