Yes, that is what I need to do, isn't it?  I can't just rip
myself up over stuff like this.

I do have one related question.  I have thought aboyt putting
some protective strips on the Prius but am wondering what that
does to its MPG.  I suppose they might make it a tad less
aerodynamic?  (I am HOPING that's wht Toyota didn't put such
strips on it in the first place.  Otherwise, the lack is
surprising.)

Having one tiny self-inflicted dent on my passenger side (I hit it opening
the door on my other car) I thought about buying those strips too.  I
decided they would be a nuisance when waxing the car and dropped the idea.

...pssst....Bill,
wanna buy a couple of my unused HOV CA stickers that are large enough to
cover almost any dent?  I refuse to plaster the things on all four sides of
the car and then have to take them off - along with the paint - in 2008 when
the program ends.  Gawd, are they awful looking!

That reminds me.  I had an amusing thought.  I will make
bandage magnets and put them on the dents....

I hope folks who have them will comment on any negative
aspects....  Would they be any worse than the strips on other
cars?
