I thought if there were tickford options they should have a tickford plate? My AU has a tickford plate with VIN number stamped on for the bodykit.

yeah bodykit is an option. i always thought all tickford models had tickford plates.. but i guess not.

and not to worry as that AU XR6 got sold for double what the guy paid for it and he didnt even tough the thing.. somebody got ripped off lol

Still waiting to here from the insurance mob, will have to ring them,

I noticed the other day there was a puddle of oil from under the car , so i rang them and took it back to them, 2 days later i got it back with a brand new oil pump in the gear box, apparently the seals in the pump were leaking so instead of just replacing the seals they put a new pump it, and no more leak,

Good thing though is, didnt have to pay a cent for the new pump and the labour,

Anyways now im just waiting to here from the insurance mob, will keep this updated

Cheers

Took the car down today, they took some happy snaps of the damage and the damaged rim as well, car is booked in at the end of this month to go to the insurance company, apprently they need to keep it for a week,

So now just have to play the waiting game

While im waiting out for it to go in, ill give the engine a service and hopefully replace the lifters as there abit noisy, then look for replace door trims as mine are starting to look old, also reinstall a stock speaker into the drivers side front door as when i swapped doors around i cbf swapping em over

Cheers

Had the battery die on me couple of days ago, borrowed one for now till i can afford a replacement

Car goes into the panal beaters in 4 days time, then i find out if its good or bad news if its good ill be picking up another engine for it, as a spare one and a slow rebuilder, meantime will be to get it resprayed and fix a few interior bits and peaces out,

Matt out

Dont spend too much time and effort on it at the moment.
With the sill damage etc it wont be coming back from the panel beater.
It will be a write off.
