Ah well, the insurance assessor is coming to have a look at it on monday. Went to the doctors this morning to get my neck checked out, but it is only slightly sprained from the accident.....so nothing major, but its friggin sore!

So I have spent most of today sulking around feeling sorry for myself and my car!

On the plus side, I did have a nice black BA for 24 hours......working out some figures and I reccon I am going to try and pick one up soon

Pulling the FTR's off the car and some of the expensive little bits I put on it........ie: new bendix ultimates, stereo, heavy duty battery and what not....might even rip the maf out as that cost me $155 and put the stuffed one back in!

Well, time to give this abit of an update....

The ef has been sitting basically untouched since the accident as I have been making up my mind what to do with it. I got it booked in at a crash shop today to be all fixed up......goes in in three weeks time.

So......Expect to see this car back on the road sometime soon! With hopefully abit more go!

Since the accident I also bought myself a new toy......a 2006 BF Futura with 78,000 on it. Heres a pic of the new toy. No real plans for any major mods to it as its a daily, but it will probably get a set of wheels and abit of lowering so it handles abit better!
