Shower of sparks! Lots of wired are scorched and taped up; so maybe I did touch the red to black!

This morning everything was fine until I backed into the garage. Last few inches- click; *BAM* - right into the wall. Maybe I should put the red and black wires together intentionally and put it out of its misery!
If you're just going to put it out of it's misery, why not send it off to me, I'll save it.
