Mysterious fender damage on both sides

(2000 Honda Civic)
in Delaware, OH on February 03, 2009
We thought fender was run into but the damage has occured to both front fenders. One body shop mentioned that "soft front" may have gotten weighter down by excessive ice and snow and is buckling both sides. Have you heard of this? They haven't examined under car yet,only outside visual inspection so far. Thanks.

The fenders are light on these cars. Light weigh means better gas mileage. We had a fellow put stiffer springs on his car and came by to show us how great his "new" springs were by doing the old "bounce test" on his front fenders to test the shocks, he didn't apply a huge amount of force but you could see the mark left on the fender by his hands. Needless to say he didn't show off the new springs on the other side of the car.
