Commiserations.

Did the same on my GTA soon after buying it - filthy weather and caught out by the turning circle.

The thought of a refurb just isn't the same.

Nice easy repair, with a little skill, and time to spare, if it's not badly bent, that is. Don't forget the Boots No.17 nail varnish in silver glitter.:

Looks fixable, and I don't think it's bent...just cross as it was my own fault.

Thanks for the sympathy. As soon as I have some cash I shall get it refurbed! Going to have to live with the cosmetic shame for a week or two.

Re: Dinged an alloy!

Don't think people on AO even now believe me that the No17 glitter in silver was well nigh a perfect match for her 147's wheels.: Then clear lacquered.: Badgered naturally.: (£150's worth of Yankee airbrush when I bought it about fifteen years ago : ) Smallest nozzle/tip, will do a pencil line width spray pattern.:
