could have been worse. are you sure someone didn't accidentally back into it? i'm guessing no security cameras on the parking lot?
if you haven't already, i'd call the company that shipped the pipes to let them know as soon as you can. the sooner the better. then when you open them all up, if there is any damage, you've already got a claim going.
If somebody backed into it, I'm sure it would've been worse. Plus there was what looked like part of a bootprint on it when I first noticed.
No cameras in the parking lot, the company next door has some angled towards the general direction but I was parked about 6 foot away from the edge of the camera's view.
Also, thanks for the advice on contacting the company. I'll do that first thing tomorrow morning after checking the bottom pipe.
Sometimes it just seems impossible to have something nice and keep it that way when you're the only one who cares. It seems like the "screw you it's all about me" population has increased exponentially in these past years.
FYI, I hope those pipes are OK. I think you'll love them.
I hear you on that. Just 2 weeks ago while at Walmart, my car got hit on BOTH sides while I was in store. I didn't notice until I got home and was told they "can't do anything about it" because I left the premises before reporting the damage.
And for the exhaust, just waiting on crush gaskets. I can order them tonight and have them by Tuesday or Wednesday.
Anybody here have the part numbers? I read that the front and rear gaskets were different but only one part number was mentioned in the article.
