Rubber 'whiskers' on Alfa GT
I went to get a couple of quotes today to get my bumper resprayed and undertray replaced on my GT. This happened on my 'outback' trip documented elsewhere. The first place I saw was Shipstone who are really good and they actually put my car on a hoist and used ties and screws as a temporary solution for the undertray on my car which was that far gone it was a couple of cms. off the ground and wouldn't have lasted too many kilometres.
A couple of questions that nobody has ever been able to answer. Attached to the bottom of the bumper was two rubber "whiskers" for want of a better word, around 1ft, long one on each side of the bottom. They've been ripped off but what do these achieve? I can't see them being any use for aerodynamics nor brake cooling or anything else I can think of. Are they worth to be part of the claim?
Also I want to mention everything I can to the insurance assessor whom I see tomorrow. During my long trip and afterwards the ABS and VDC lights are coming on intermittently. Could running over the bumpy roads and potholes caused some kind of sensors to be screwed. I can start the car and they will come on sometimes. I can be driving and they can come on sometimes. Re-starting gets rid of it so far. These never came on before my trip and my battery is relatively new.
