    I can't afford a garage. :ROFLMAO: No worries. But if I did, I would attach a big piece of 2" or 4" thick soft foam to the door.

    Looking at the picture in the first post, as there is no close up of the grey prii.

    Ah, I assumed the front cowel slanted backwards, just looked at mine, it does protrude 1/2” forward of the body, I also have a license plate and its holder, so a door would stop on the holder, I’m assuming the door must articulate inward the last 2’ of it’s downward travel, pity.
    I’d place something soft behind it and watch the camera until contact was made to hit the proper position while backing in.
    Some black or matte black spray paint would save a big body shop bill.

    For better or worse should not have included this !!! I have a tennis ball hanging down. When it hits the windshield I know I am in far enough.

    I'm in the same boat, I cracked my passenger side rear signal light on the bumper...stealership is asking $300.
