Rear Ended Grrrrrrrr
Well when you drive around with a rarer than rocking horse cr@p Zender rear end these unavoidable accidents are a nightmare scenario and it has finally happened.
Actually it's not that bad and comes with a good result. Day before yesterday I was in slow moving traffic and gently came to a stop. The 59 year old in his Fiat behind me decided to use my rear spoiler as his brake and just went straight into me. It didn't look like much but fibre glass has a way of hiding the truth and on closer inspection it's totally cracked along one side and a small split I had in the wing has turned into a huge gaping crack.
The guy said it wasn't worth putting a claim in but then didn't want to know when I said OK but I would send him the bill! A couple of police officers saw that he gave me his details and that was the end of that.
The assesor has been to see it today and has approved the work right away including the split that I had already which is pretty cool. It goes in on Monday and should take 3 days max. To top it all I've taken it to the insurance recommended shop so I'll get myself a free buff all nice and ready for my Club meeting next weekend!
All's well that ends well? Hope so!
