I found a dead mouse about 10 ft away from my car. :o I have never had any type of problem before, so I take the cover off to ck it out.

That little [email protected] chewed through the starshield , the striping and damaged the body. Evidently starshield is toxic. The splitter made a nice platform to sit and chew. :D

Thank god he did not go to town on the wiring. I have had to fix many customer cars with rodent damaged wiring...not fun. Is that section of yellow striping available by itself or should I just get some yellow paint touch it up and call it a day?

I am so pissed...my brand new 2-Eleven, 350 miles and it's damaged :P:angry::angry:

I will not sleep tonight, this will lead to nightmares.............

If it were mine, I'd remove the panel, get it filled and only local painted by a good touch repair specialist. Replace the graphic with a fresh one. Panel is easily removed and it's an easy paint repair; graphic available from Hethel, or the supplier.

Hope the dead mouse was single and living alone..............

I think yellow touchup paint.

He will have friends so you may want to get some of these...

Scott is correct.

There are a couple of bolts at the top and 2 or 3 under the splitter. It is about 10 min to get that panel off.
