    Thumbs Down aw u gota be kidding me!

    as i made contact with a kerb a little while ago and as billing is this weekend organised my mate Eddie to give it a once over which he agreed to do. so while putting on my BMX space saver thingy, i put the 19" wheel out of the way wedged up against 2x of my wheely bins, gave it a wobble test and carried on. just as i was tightening the last bolt on the spare i heard the awful noise of a wheel falling over, i closed my eyes and wished hard.... 'please let it fall over on its backside'......

    looked over to see it on its face NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    picked it up very carefully it has scuffs from 12 o'clock - 10 o'clock on 8x of the 10 spokes and the rim

    anyway dropped it off at my smart repair guys tonight and he says dont worry i'll sort it, he was supposed to have a day off 2mora but i guess i have just ruined it for him

    the wheel is in such a state i even contemplated not going, he said he has seen worse and will work his magic. Eddie i'm counting on you fella, he's not let me down yet. fingers crossed, got lots of stuff to do in the morning and its gona be a very busy 2x days. no pics as i was so down i just wanted it out of my sight.

    Good luck getting it sorted, I know how you feel though.

    I crunched the nearside corner of my front spoiler yesterday.... reckon I'll be putting filler on it while at Billing on Saturday...

    Peeved, but it hasn't put me off going at all!

    Feel for you bud. I'm sure it will be mint when it comes back. I've seen some very bad wheels repaired without a spot noticable on them.

    It will look spot on for Billing!!

    well i doubt he'll make it look any worse than it was when it left here... it made me feel sick it was the last thing i bloomin wanted.

    i still need to move my 4x way amp, re wire my bass amp running the hx2, and fit the ipod drive and play kit... then clean it

    Weird thing is, the gap between the wheels & arches looks bigger each time I look at it, but the front seems to be getting closer to the ground....

    I reckon my bus is mutating!!!!
