I scratched up my dash putting my seats back in after installing Dynamat. I was just wondering if anyone else has done something stupid like this while doing a relatively easy mod...or am I the only idiot?
Ok here is my stupid story. I was just doing a compound and wax job on my box,due to some scratches. So i was about to compound the door and after it hazed i was wiping it off and realized there was a big rock on the rag i was using and caused more scrathces. Then when i was wiping down the rear bumper i nail my finger on one of the bolts that hold the bumper on, and ripped the tip of my thumb off.. Is that stupid..
How about this ??
I tried to clean the airbag warning stickers off my sun visors with Goof-Off. It wrinkled one of them real bad and it looked worse than when it had the sticker. So I spent the $35 and bought a new sun visor complete with the airbag sticker I tried to remove.
My new visor finally came (complete with new lovely airbag sticker). So I opened up the door and began to install it. Just then I dropped one of the screws out of my hand. And it fell right into that little hole that is in between the rocker panel and front fender. If you open up the door and look in front below the door hinge, you'll see the ONLY little hole there. It was a million in one shot, and the screw went right down that hole. I then had to jack up the car and remove the front wheel and the take off part of the rocker panel and part of the inner fender liner just to reach that %$@#@ screw with a magnet.
So........just to remove a sticker cost me $35, and about an hour and a half of time. Needless to say, I felt like an idiot !!
Ok, here's my idiotic story on what i did to my poor baby.....
I was waxing my car for the first time and i was going around making sure i buffed out all the wax. Next, i need to get the wax between the fender lines and little area that wax was still in. But, since we have nothing that can reach the wax to clean it out, i decided to use a box cutter wrapped in paper towels (several Layers). I did the driver side, and back end.........everything went well. Until i did the passenger fron fender when the box cutter cut through the paper towels and left a nice Gouge 2 inches long..............F_ck!

I was going to wax the xB and didn't want to start it up to back up 10' out of the garage, so I got in the drivers seat and pushed it back with one foot out the door. Unfortunately, I didn't get the drivers side door closed enough before it ran into a wooden shelf. Fortunately, only took off 1/2"square on the black tape right above the window sill. Didn't bend door, was lucky. It will not happen again.
no waiting for you budies to get in your xb. so you crack one small little fart that stinks up the whole xb and your friends come out the door just at that moment and jump inside and all of them look at you like what the F*CK!!!

i left my lunch inside next to 65+ weather for the day with the panoramic shades off and both sets of keys in my coat pocket. DOPE.!!! otherwise i would of asked my sister to take it out so it doesnt spoil and cause a bad smell.. but NO i had to be an idiot for the day.
I cracked my gas gauge needle when I was modding my speedo to blue. I was able to get Krazy glue to hold it together, but not well enough to zero out the gauge completely so when I get to the top of the E line, I'm done... Also managed to get a finger print or two in the krazyglue so it looks like CSI did a number on my fuel gauge. Of course, Toyota doesn't sell the needles separately, I'd have to buy the whole instrument cluster... (cluster is a good word for it) The worst part is now the sharpie wore off so my speedo's back to white but the needle's still jacked up!
everybody's done something dumb! if they say they havent it just means there too embarassed to say what it is! ive done my share just not yet with the tC!
Just last night i was wrestling with my fiance and well to make the story short, her "horseshoe" belly ring caught in my nostril and wripped the end of my nose! it blead quite a bit, about a 1/4 deep cut, very wierd, but it still looks much better than michael jacksons!
i ended up making a wrong turn, so i decided to pull off on a side street and do a quick U-turn. this was only a 2 lane ( one each way) residential road thru some neighborhood. i hadn't had the xb very long, but i thought it could pull the U-tun in the tight spot. as i start the maneuver i see a car coming up on me, so i go ahead and give her a little gas so i get out of the way. needless to say i didnt make the Turn and scraped up the curb into somones front yard and some conviently placed bolders in their yard scrached my bumper all up....

I got bored one night around 4am and decided to take apart the entire car as much as I could, removing all 4 door panels, half the front end, half the back end, removing parts of the dashboard and entire center console and stereo. I was able to get it all back together fine, but the reason it was stupid was because I had no clue what I was doing and was "hoping" I would be able to put it all back together. I did manage to get a really nasty cut on my hand when removing the front passenger side door panel though, that was pretty dumb.

**went out to a buffet with my girls and stuffed ourselves to the point of no movement...but we at least made it to the closest car in the parking lot: my car...it was cold outside and we were still trying to decide what was going down that night so i turn the heater full blast....when my xB was all warm and toasty we got comfortable, took off our jackets, gloves, hats and even took off our shoes. i didnt want the air blowing in my face anymore, so i changed it full blast to our feet.....hehehe....the air quality went from zero to STANK in 2.5 seconds...and even IIIII (the culprit) thought it was sooo bad i had to lean out my window for air and put my shoes back on...hehe...thats bad when u think ur own funk is bad..our food stayed down though--and so did our windows ......needless to say we headed to the mall several days later and i replaced my 6yr old pair of shoes with a new pair of pink phats and silver adidas...ok, not "replace"...i really love them...i still have them *blush*
