I'm really sorry to hear that. I know how I would feel if that happened to any of mine. Hopefully, you'll be able to recover a lot of useful spare parts? When will the authorities start clamping down on the dangerous and incompetent idiots on the roads? 😠

Hi Kevin I hears about you on another thread. You might be the man to help me out with regards to a new panel that a company is pressing. I will pm you when I get back from work. The option of you selling a 220 sounds interesting what kind of money would you be looking at for them?

A picture or two off the damage to your car would be a good starting point.

If you cannot get them to post on here then maybe pm me you email address and we could do it that way.
