    Man... S**t keeps on getting me...

    I was traveling 605 south when I see the car right infront of me swerves to the right and I see right infront of me a small spare donut tire sitting in the middle lane.

    I had a chance to react but as soon as I tried to I noticed that there was a soccer mom on my right, a bus on my back and a SUV on my left...

    I just slowed down enough and rolled righ on top of it...

    This is the result...

    Dam that thing tore up the plastic belly cover. Is there any other structural damage underneath? Sorry this shit happened to you Berto. Hopefully, you only need to replace the plastic cover.

    I forgot his name, but isn't there a member on the org that works at one that gives discounts on OEM parts?

    I also contacted west covina nissan for most of my parts that I needed. I think her name was julie, the internet sales person.

    Man i feel bad for you....all this shit keeps happening to you and you seem like a really good guy. i hope everything works out and its only a minor repair. I think it was a very honorable thing that you thought of others than yourself on the road...you took the risk of injuring your own baby instead of the risk of causing another accident...i tip my hat to you sir.

    Damn bro - You're being punished for something you did in your previous life. Glad everything is ok and you're not hurt.

    Call up Joe and see if he can hook it up.
