    A few years back there was a driver who hit a dear near my home with his nice KW. He hit the deer, then one of those heavy road signs. Took out part of the hood, grill and light. So he went to the collision shop down the road where they throw out huge pieces of cardboard and took a few to make a new hood. He used duct tape, wire and four cans of paint. The owner of the shop said he would fix the hood for free to get the guy home but nope, the guy said his truck, his fix.


    The shop has a picture of it with the caption “THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY”

    Duct tape? And here I thought I was being smart using a strip of steel to fix my broken hood.
