    Vixer off to car hospital

    After almost a month of phonecalls and paperwork the vixer finally got picked up today for the repair work to start

    The timing couldn't have been worse over christmas and new year, plus my birthday and a holiday in between as well so it's nice to get some visible progress.

    The estimate stands at £2900 at the moment but there's some nastyness under the bodywork that could push that up. It was a bit touch and go to be honest as there is some damage to the inner wing and front cross member that the independant engineer was concerned about but my insurance company have authorised the repair.

    No word from the third parties insurance company yet so don't know where we stand on liability etc, time will tell, just pleased the repair is progressing.

    Little snap this morning before it was taken to luton to be patched up:

    I've taken the drivers side door card off as the door needs to come off for the repair so thats the main thing I was worried about. I've set the eq so there's no output from the speakers so they won't be able to mess around with anything

    I've used this garage many many times before and have excellent customer service so I know they'll treat it well.
