    Someone scuffed my front hood/bumper last night.

    Any recommendations for a body shop around Bellevue that's dealt with carbon fiber?

    That's a bummer. I am sorry that happened. Both the hood and bumper? Do you know who did it?

    Sorry to hear that. I'm not sure about carbon fiber work, but we really like RNR on 130th in Bellevue. They do high quality body work and we have used them several times. You could try giving them a call. Their number is 425-453-2898.

    Upon further examination, its just the bumper. A RAV4 backed into it at slow speed (poor attempt at street parking) and her bumper scraped the top of my bumper.

    Luckily I was in the car, texting so I got out right away and got her insurance info.

    My local repair guy said it should be fairly simple with repaint of bumper. Unfortunately, Tesla is not in their system so they can't do it.

    So I'll be dropping by RNR later on today to get an estimate. I'll look into a bigger paint armor on the thing. Its got one on already but it covers soooo little.

    We use RNR too. But I wonder if you should consult with Tesla on the repair.
