Default The PT IS NOT A SNOW PLOW!!!!

The PT IS NOT A SNOW PLOW!!!!

So I have not had the Panel PT back from the body shop but maybe 3 weeks, and now I have something big to fix!


We've had the 2 rounds of snow here in Okieland with a little of the problems that Texas is encountering.
But, when the main road got cleared and drying I started going out to the store.
**The problem is, It really didn't sink in to me that I had lowered the Pteazer front end!
The higher snow between the wheel tracks on my secondary street must have refrozen a little my last time out.
You know, the thick places where your street intersects a plowed street.
Sure, I heard the rubbing!
But, I DID NOT EXPECT THIS...just after the car was repainted!!!



So! Now I have just one more PT project to work on this spring.
BUT....I will repair it in a way that will rebuff even concrete parking stops!

I've done the same thing and destroyed SOOO BIG's front air deflector scraping an unseen concrete parking barrier.
Unfortunately, you've got a lot more expensive fix than just replacing an air dam.
Best advice, "don't plow snow with your PT"

Never though that center line snow might be frozen!

the other thing to watch out for is icebergs that fall from other cars. I've hit ones that a normal car should go over without a problem. Not so in a PT. j
