Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaarg!

Nice sunny day.

No hangover.

Took a workmate to go pick up his car
from last night.

I know, I'll go jetwash the car and
pick up some food 'n' booze for tonight.


Waiting at a STOP sign....





.... T H U N K !

Some stupid old bint smacks
into me.

"Oh, did I hit you?"


Gaaaaaaa!!!!!


My recently repair bumper now has a gash
in it and another tailpipe is bent.



My weekend is ruined.


Brera may turn out to be my unluckiest car ever.

Re: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaarg!

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!

Nev, that's soooo unlucky. Think you better accidentally on purpose trip over the kerb or something. They say bad luck comes in threes.

Re: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaarg!

Oh dear! Sorry to hear that Nev!

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?!!!!

Re: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaarg!

Insurance refused to replace the bumper again.

How good are plastic repairs?

Get her back tomorrow....

Re: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaarg!

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?:

Re: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaarg!

Got Brera back.

Looks good as new.

Yay!!!

Hopefully the alarm and driver's
window are also fixed too.


And got a cheque in the post to cover the attack
from the pinetree last year !
Enough to cover a visit to AutoDelta!

Double Yay!

I'm off out on the p!ss...

Surely its her insurance that would be paying for it though, right?

What did they do about the tailpipe?

At least you've got it sorted..
