It’s very sad that someone who works hard and enjoys nice things can’t have them because people are jerks.
Renee Hughes of Hoover, Alabama found that out when she woke up Friday morning to find that her Black 2014 Corvette Stingray had been vandalized by someone who poured paint stripping gel all over her new car.
The incident happened August 1st between 12 midnight and 4 am at The Abbey at Riverchase Apartments in Hoover.
Initially she thought acid had been pour on the car based on the damage but a user on StingrayForums noted that it was actually paint stripper gel.
The paint stripper gel was poured over the top of the carbon fiber hood which dripped down the bulge and around the air extraction vent. The driver side looks to have gotten the worst of it as the paint has literally fallen off the car. The rear hatch got it as well and the gel also ran down the rear fascia damaging the tail lights well.
Renee says the car is going into the shop and it will probably be there for a month as they attempt to fix the damage.
Unfortunately, when she gets the car back, it could potentially be a target again as she lives in an apartment complex.
$1,000 $3,050 reward has been posted for information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of the vandal(s). Renee says on her Facebook Page that police are involved and a local television station was going to do a segment on her damaged Corvette. Please call 205-822-5300 if you know anything about the incident.
