Not Happy I'm a numpty.. first GTA accident.

Well yes that's right first knock in the GTA today.. and no I didn't cause any major damage.

Just decided that I wouldn't see the pile of roof tiles on my uncles drive as I reversed into it. I actually couldnt see them in my mirrors and didn't know they were there.

Lovely scratches on the rear bumper on the drivers side. about 5 inches long in 4 different places.

Pics to follow tomorrow. Damn.

I already had chips away coming next friday so I think he may have one more panel to do now.

Indeed it could of. I reckon most of it will Tcut out.

And it's only on the side of the bumper behind the rear wheel.

Just couldnt believe it.

That's bad luck, hopefully you'll get the scratches out next week.

Re: I'm a numpty.. first GTA accident.

Where did you learn to drive?





Kidding aside, hope it's not big deal and gets fixed cheaply soon!

Re: I'm a numpty.. first GTA accident.

Oh dear. Almost rivals me badly scuffing two alloy wheels in separate incidents the day before SAD. Still, doesn't sound too bad. What did we used to do before Chips Away....?

Cheers,

Nigel

AAAAGGHHHHHHH!!! Sorry man... I had my GTA recovered after a breakdown and the numpty dented and scrached my rims... nice big dings on two of them.. looks like bad luck this week for the GTA boys....

Hope you get sorted out quickly and painlessly..

Good luck man..

Re: I'm a numpty.. first GTA accident.

Must be the week for it. I tried to squeeze through a space that was a bit smaller than I thought £200 to sort my car and about another £150 to get the 'parked' car sorted

Oh well 'that's life' as the saying goes

Re: I'm a numpty.. first GTA accident.

Sorry to hear that Joe. Hope it polishes out for the most part. You have to look closely to my front bumper to see where I shunted someone at a roundabout

Only takes a momentary lapse in concentration, we have all done similar.

Re: I'm a numpty.. first GTA accident.

Wasn't even a lapse of concentration. Just couldnt see the tiles.. And the GTA has a fat ass.

I had a good go with the Tcut today and 2 out of the 4 scratches are gone. Only the 2 deep scratches remain, so I'm a bit happier.

Re: I'm a numpty.. first GTA accident.

bad luck.

rear visibility in the 156 is pretty dire.

i had a few war wounds to heal on my 156 when i bought it. it had been the victim of a lady driver.

Is it a buff-out job?

Hope the roof tiles are okay!
