Armorol wipes saved the day and cleaned all the exterior plastic that has accumulated wax residue over the years. For some reason armorol spray on a rag didn't work, and other various things just didn't work either. Its been over 2 weeks on the test spots and its looking clean and good.

Yesterday, but I cleaned the egg off my driver door and discovered a neat little semi-circle of paint chips where the crown of the egg impacted.

Friday night lights in Dallas, probably some testosterone filled punks riding around late after the highschool football game was out.

Car and I am both just fine.
I got really lucky. Especially considering I'm quite lowered.
Actually not sure how in the hell I managed not to break anything. I'd of thought the oil pan would be the first thing to go. Guess the subframe is just low enough to take the brunt first, thankfully.

Next time I'm out that way I'll snap a pick of where I went in. You won't believe I came out unscathed. Ditch is 6'+ deep and somewhat steep.
