slight knock

Post by rodney68 »

have spent all afternoon knocking dents out of the 2 passenger side doors after swerving to miss a paper boy on his bike that appeared out of nowhere,managed to miss him and hit a bollard from front of near side door to bumper,doesn't look too badly dented but badly scraped,more work needed when it stops raining,little scrote said sorry mate i didn't see you bye :shock:

I hate grief like this with motors but, hey, it could have been a bloody site worse as if you had hit the little bugger your life would have been shite now, especially if he had died.
At least the motor is fixable so if you look at it like that it aint so bad.

Some bugger sprayed my beloved BX with yellow paint, wings and all but she still works and at least there's no damage.

I feel for you but you and the youngster are both ok.

Depending on how bad the doors are I might have 2 in better nick (red). Not perfect but yours for a couple of drinks and I will be over in Norwich in a month or so.
