Truck Keyed

9 posts in this topic

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.

    • Rather than the concepts of teams I think it more appropriate to think in terms of philosophies. Each "team" has a philosophical way of dealing with certain issues: tax codes, immigration, war on drugs etc,  So even though your candidate may be weak you are going to vote, not for them, but for that teams way of dealing with those issues.   A simple example would be tax codes.  The democrats think individual taxes for the top 10%'s should be increased where the republicans believe that reducing taxes on that same 10% will stimulate growth through trickle down economics.   So in essence, you're not voting for a particular candidate, you're voting for the team that will deal with these issues in a way you feel is best. 
    • Like Obabma, he sets up a straw man false premise and then proceeds to attack said straw man.      He is deceived by the fact that the most polarized folks are the ones making the noise, thereby creating a false impression.    You persist in wanting to discuss this article.  Why is that?      
    • So lets recap.   Decriminalization will not reduce prison populations by a noticeable amount.    Will not reduce crime.   Will not reduce monies spent combating drug suppliers and dealers.   Will not lower the consumption rates.    - Will allow regular everyday citizens who use/possess and get caught, not ruin their lives with a crippling criminal record.   May encourage the the habitual users to seek treatment/help.      Which I have no issues with.   My issues are saying with decriminalization it will save tax payers any money.   That's my beef.    
    •   I didn't see the Socialist party listed

    • Nick they are all trash, your party included, until you figure that out you are no better than some blind Trump supporter.
    •   That was a long time ago.   The media has become far more partisan than it was at that time.   

    • You are starting to sound like a helpless snowflake in desperate need of big government to take away the burden of personal responsibility away from you. I try and take a big picture approach and not mico manage our laws based on political views outside of science or common sense.

      No one is advocating for drunk driving or murder to be legal but I guess that doesn't stop you from using wild assumptions without anything to back them up.

      All most of us are asking for is simple freedoms and choices and a government that stays out of the way. Having a bunch of drugs that kill and half of the legal and half of them illegal makes no sense. You either stand for personal freedom and responsibility across the board or you don't, picking and choose this stuff based on political leanings is about as backwards as it gets and you just end up looking like a complete hypocrite. Keeping drugs outlawed because people die is the same kind of reasoning people use to take away guns. All the while you are more likely to die from eating too much McDonalds, you simply can't outlaw stupid people or the things they do and expect that to work. We as a people need to stop trying to control things are completely out of our control, all it does is waste tons of money and time and it does a wonderful job of ruining people's lives.
    • I really don't like a president calling out news media outlets by name and whining about the media. Obama did it with FOX and talk radio and now Trump is doing it with CNN and the NYT's. It's one thing for each men's supporters to do it. But I don't recall GWB or Reagan or Carter calling out the media by name in public.   I don't buy the claim from some(nobody here) that doing such is a sign of a dictator(the same, btw, who cheered BHO doing it). It just makes a president look weak and whiny and looking for other's to blame for their own failures. Not that I'm a fan of the NYT's, but I do believe in freedom of the press even the press I personally don't care much for.   If you're an elected official, the press is supposed to be a thorn in your side
    •   This is what Del was probably talking about and yes he is right, we do have to pick a side or at least a candidate when we go to the polling booth but there is no need to defend every single move the candidate makes and vilify every single move the opposition makes.      I'm not sure what makes us think and behave the way we do, I didn't take enough psychology or anthropology courses in college to answer that question but I do know that to me it is even more repulsive than the small minded thinking that goes in to hating one sports team although they are basically the same as your chosen sports team. I can see liking and rooting for one sports team or political faction over another but the pure hatred for the opposite team is mind boggling to me.     These are the fine points of this article as I see it. Now would anyone like to have a discussion on these points?
    •   This paragraph is important because I believe that most people now when faced with a political discussion do indeed "turn off their intellect". It's the only way to get through the hypocrisy that arises when one chooses a side so completely.
