I think he has a cheat installed, Carl. Look at the 1st picture, small plaque on wall on left of car. Looks like foam or sheetrock impact absorber to protect the door edge.  Nice trick, Patrick.   . 

That wouldn't help me a bit. I probably would have parked the car either to far forward or just nor far enough so I would miss it

I like how you staggered your fence planks, Kevin. What wood did you use?

I priced the wood up to do my own, but cheaper to actually get panels in,  i reckon wood has gone up by 40% in two years 

anyway panels it is, so i just cut the first on in half

In that case, Carl, use door edge guards like These  , they do come in a Clear plastic version. I've used them on my cars and they do protect against chipping. Easy to install and remove.

I stopped parking my car in a home garage, Jack. Most cars defrost the windscreen fast enough during winter, not to bother making the effort. Besides the missus has a rabbit in there, so I can't park in it anyway. "No more damaged car doors, take a rabbit in your garage"

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
