Need to do more 'Pumping' Nev.: Er? Let me re-phrase, to clarify. At any time when stopping, loads of repeat pumps of the brake pedal, to flash those rear lights, indicating " I'm stopping, and hoping you will be too!
How about this though, I go out to the car this morning and next door's son appears with his tail between his legs. Apparently, last night (at some unGodly hour, and probably p*ssed), he's reversed into my car at about 20 mph and wiped out my rear bumper, also put a hump in my boot. And the impact was so hard that my car lurched forward and broke Annie's rear bumper. Silly bugger! Still, at least I can get 2 new bumpers with some fresh paint on and hey, at least he put his hands up to it.
Annoyingly, he drives a Saxo and the only damage he has sustained is that he needs a new (plastic!!) rear hatch! WTF?!!!!
If they have the 'Hot Air' welding equipment, and the correct compatible filler rods, just like welding metal, well sort of, if a little different. Not much use to you over there mate, but a company in WGC specialises in that gear, which is good kit to have, if you are into bodyshop repairing?:
