Cry Like A Baby Bugger bugger bugger...

I slid into the back of a mondeo on the Stillorgan road this evening, road was like a skating rink....

Damage looks cosmetic, but the bonnet is 'torn' around the grill (goddamn fiberglass!) and it looks like I may need a new from bumper too (although daylight will tell more, might be just misaligned..)

I believe you can't get new bonnets though, am I down to searching the breakers...?

Crap.

try Autolusso. although their stock of used parts is diminished now, they may be able to help.

Please do Paddy, although I am happy with the lads I have used it's always good to have a second opinion!

sorry to hear that Cian, I lost control on Sunday morning twice, only for there was no cars around I'd be in the same boat. So the car has been sitting up in the work yard since
