...when the carpet gets wet and instead of finding the leak you just remove all the carpet.

...when you get tired of the sagging headliner and decide to pull all the fabric down and paint the fiberglass matt with a roller and grey paint.

....when you have dented doors and replace them with off-color versions to teach your wife what happens when she makes demands about the car that isn’t her’s.

...when your hood is backed into and the person’s insurance cuts you a $1,000.00 check to fix it right and you buy a $40 junk yard hood; making the car covered in panels of 3 different colors.

...when you kind of hate the fact you got alloy wheels with the car so you paint them black because you don’t want to feel guilty about not cleaning them.
