    Can you imagine the damage that would have been done if that had been steel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wouldn't be just installing a new poly skin.:nono:

    Wow, I have a poly v xt I still like it. That is because we never plow unpaved surfaces anymore!

    Another reason steel is superior to poly! Either way, still ruins your day.
