Car Hit By Neighbour

15 June 2014 - 08:45 PM

My Focus Collection was hit by a neighbour trying to park his car.
He was honest & knocked on my door & owned up, which I'm glad about as most people nowadays would have kept quiet.
He recommended a bodyshop he'd used before that were good so I went down to get a quote - £250! Nearly half the cars value!
Being a Collection edition, the bumpers are like hens teeth to get hold of so I'm glad it can be repaired really.
Anyway, got back & told the neighbour & he said thats fine, it costs what it costs & to book it in, passed me the cash there & then too. Top bloke.
So its booked in for the 23rd & get it back 2 days later.
Here's a pic of the damage...


Will post another when its fixed.


Mk1 Trailing Arm Bush Tool To Borrow/rent?

14 April 2014 - 05:32 AM

Has anybody got one they could lend/rent me for a day or 2 please? I'm in Southport near Liverpool. Don't fancy buying one at £150+ to use once!
Thanks, Ade.

Hello From The New Guy

Hi, my name is Ade and I'm a...... oh hang on, wrong group :-)
My name IS Ade & I've just bought my 3rd Mk1 Focus.
Admittedly I have a bit of a 'thing' for Fords thanks to my Dad who's had them all his life.
I've owned loads from Mk1 XR2's, Mk1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 Escorts, XR3's, XR3i's, Cortina's, Sierra's, Focus' etc!
Had a bit of a break from them by owning a Vectra Diesel for 3 months then a Scenic for 7 months but felt the call of Ford once more and bought myself another Focus, a 1.8 Zetec Collection in Black.
Will get a few pics up when I get some, not had time yet!
But for now Happy Christmas everyone :-)
