fence v coupe

Post by Amsca2 » Tue Jan 16, 2018 8:14 am

I've just had a call from the wife to confess to having put my coupe into a fence after a skid and it's too dark to see if it's damaged. This will be a long day. :(
Wife's ok so just the other lady in my life to check over.

I am glade to hear you wife is ok which is the main thing

Hopefully your coupe has not come off to badly either. I am shore that whatever parts are needed the are people on here that have them if you cannot find them local to you. This is the advantage off being a person on here that comes to meetings and very one else knows face to face rather than just a name on face book.

Hopefully it is just bolt on items and the main structure has remained undamaged.

Any marks might even just polish out :roll:

Thanks people. She spoke of spoiler damage so not sure if it's rear damage or she thinks the splitter on the front is a spoiler.

Fingers crossed it's just cosmetic. Let us know if you need anything and we'll see what we can come up with.

Glad your good lady is okay, which is the most important thing.

Well it could have been a he'll of a lot worse. She's put a wee split and some crazing on the passenger corner of the back bumper must have been a balsa fence.

It's making me fight harder to get her a replacement car. See my latest post.

How's the fence ? Hopefully not too bad, new panels aren't that expensive and an easy fix. Posts can sometimes be a bit difficult to replace though.
