    Unhappy Damage to the cab last night

    Well where do I start, last night was not a good night for the cab.

    Ever since my car was hit last year the front passanger side fixing has not been great fitting or as secure as the other side.

    Well last night with the assistance of a flooded road my front bumper decided it wanted to part compay with the rest of my car





    Went through the flood and came out the other side and heard an awful sound, stopped quite quickly and tried to jump out my car to check it out. Couldnt open my door with out force, get out and see my front bumper under my car!!!!!

    Completly ripped off and wedged under my car. Had to jack the car up to remove the front bumper. Was stuck on something underneath.

    So my bumper is destroyed, broken scratched and craked it numerous places. Radiator is damaged, side skirt craked and drivers door scratched.

    Not happy at all






    So now need to decide what to do with the front end. Do i bother spending more money and replace the rieger or go for a new look. Or not bother at all. So pi**ed off!!

    thats abit of a bummer mate!! .
    id personally go for a new look all together if money allows.
    not sure on how much a new rad would set you back though.
    could be a costly repair to say what kind of 'little' accident it was.

    how badly damanged is the radiator, is it the mounts or the actual radiator? may possibly get a cheap one of fleabay

    as above really all depends wehat sort of damage it is.

    Sorry to hear about this bud.

    I have a spare standard star silver bumper if its of any use to you. Obviously its crap compare with the original one but if you want to borrow it from me FOC and just send it back when your done your more than welcome.

    Its a jam thing

    Shit sorry to see that mate

    Bumper suits your car perfectly, so i'd get another Reiger one. A new Rad is only about £50 off eBay so no real biggie there.

    Not good

    Front bumper might be repairable with a bit of resourcefulness tho
    Actively proving that post counts mean jack sh*t since 1971
