That's how I look at it, after a 100k or so when they have many dents I will just pull the trashed ones off and put the new ones on. I'm a lot more confortable putting on new BSM as to having my door sanded down and repainted. Seems like every time I've had body work done in my life their is over spray or lemon peel in the clear coat or some blemish that drives me nuts but I'm OCD about fit and finish details.Well it's either a dent in the BSM or your door, seems like the same to me, I guess you can always remove them and throw them out after they get dinged up so much?
Is that better or worse than the "orange" peel as it is commonly known?Seems like every time I've had body work done in my life their is over spray or lemon peel in the clear coat or some blemish that drives me nuts but I'm OCD about fit and finish details.
LOL I meant to say orange peel, but I was drinking lemonade while I posted that, must have been a freudian slip.Is that better or worse than the "orange" peel as it is commonly known?
(sorry, couldn't help it!) :wave:
The BSM is a good idea even though I don't have them on my car. It did save my Integra years ago when the huge door of a coworker's early 80' Delta 88 2-door Coupe got blown into my door on a super windy day. The BSM took the brunt of the impact with no damage to the door, the BSM on the Integra has internal metal support and is clipped into the door panel rather than glued on, so I was able to pop the door panel, unclip the BSM and make sufficiently good repair that the dent was almost invisible from a couple of feet away.
What I didn't get was why did this coworker park right beside my car when I had parked at the far end of the parking lot with many, many available spots?! At least he had the curtesy to come and told me about it.
That doesn't sound too fun. I've gotten lucky thus far and only had one door ding on my door that I got removed for $50 via a PDR guy. I'm super OCD about parking, door dings, etc etc. which makes it kinda hard not to have the BSM. At the same time, I really like the clean lines without it. aranoid:I got one dent in the BSM on my car already, if I get a couple more they would have already paid for themself in savings from having to get PDR. If you ever get a dent that chips paint in the BSM, they would have paid for themself already.
