Just an update on my Tuesday morning surprise.
You can see below where the wax and clear coat have worn away. Car was 100% pristine before with no damage or imperfections at all.
I have a claim open with our government insurer, but it isn’t looking good for my little car.
The white stuff, by the way is foam. I moved it into a car wash for lighting reasons and then sprayed it down to attempt to mitigate the damage. I discovered the damage at 5:30am.
I did alter the light/contrast to demonstrate the damage. It is tough to see in photos otherwise due to the colour of the car and lighting.
