How to park as close to a garage wall or column as possible w/o fear
 
After scraping the front plastic bumper of my 87 Chevy Turbo Sprint (so how many Viper owners also have one of these??? haha) on a rusty column, I came up with this method: (NOTE: if the column had been nicely painted, I don't think there would have been any damage.)
HANG a piece of round foam pipe insulation from the column or wall.

When your bumper/fender touches it, it will roll and you will see this.

Being foam, it will not damage your paint (unless you have a black car and well, you are already Living in Hell - and YES, mine is black...)

but can you afford the mistakes you'll make as you learn?

I have the Hennessy front fascia on my car and judging where the front of that damn cow catcher is impossible for me. (the front edge is about 4' from the front axle axis) I'll think I'm 2 feet from a curb and it will be 2 inches.

I wonder how many people have tennis balls hanging in their small 2-car garages so they can just clear the door when they pull in?

Previous owner put it on. I was going to put the Autoform Daytona w/splitter and Daytona driving lights on it but decided it was too much work to accomplish when with car only 2 weeks out of the year.
