3rd Accident - Oct. 2003
Minor accident in rear cabin of the Santa Fe. I hooked up a portable rechargeable lantern to the rear 12volt socket. One day, after working in the garage I left the lantern on. The next day on my way to work the lantern, being that it has a built in rechargeable battery, turned on and it got hotter and hotter. The heat was too intensive and it burned almost right through the rear cargo mat.
|Lantern that did the damage||Heat cracked the lens||Burnt mark on mat||Burn went through to carpet||almost to the hidden storage bin cover|
Had to buy a new rubber mat and carpet cover.
4th Accident - Oct. 2003
I got too close to a wall that had a pole with a rubber cover sticking out of it. It dented my rear right side passenger door and cracked the side fender flare I acquired from TFR Racing.
|Damage on door||Damage on Fender Flare||Another view|
