so things have been interesting as always. im starting to think those 2 mirrors i smashed in year 10 have caught up with me :P

1 - got a nail in the rear tyre, tyre is cactus cant afford a replacement yet
2 - hit a cat, smashed my foglight into next century
3 - found a crack in my rear shocky
4 - broken door actuator. the night before i fixed it had my race helmet and other goodies stolen.

the good news for bseries owners is i found a guy on ebay selling replacment parts for $23 and it takes about an hour to repair the actuator! no more buying new ones.

a mate gave me 2 new foglamps and covers!, luckily i have my old 17s still and GT sports shocks have been ordered. just dont have enuf to pay for my rego now :).

this is the inside of the actuators motor

and heres the peice that causes all the problems
new vs old.

cheers mate. will let him know. where abours and what were you in?

weve changed the plates again unfortunately due to some pretty serious horassment. he bought it home last night at about 11:30pm and parked it at the top of the driveway ready to have stockies put on it to go to its service tomorrow. when he went out this morning to jack it up 9 wheel nuts had been removed over night.

still have no car. her insurer wont give me one because she hasnt reported the accident or even made a claim.

my entire exhaust from the cat backwards was bent, leaking and cracked. finally got the go ahead for an aftermarket one. now when ever reverse is selected the reverse sensors scream their head off. its locked up at range ford over the weekend and they hope to sort it wednesday.

Image

an accidents and accident fair enough. but even now im trying to call her as soon as i say who i am and why im calling (ive been very nice and polite about it all) i get hung up on..

over a week past the deadline now and the panel beater is as frustrated as i am. this is the same panel beater that destroyed Seduced_XR and sent it to an early grave. but the quality of the repairs on the BA looks to be great and their sorting everything out as best as they can.

hopefully get some good news wednesday.
