ok guys firstly sorry i haven't been more involved with the group just been one hell of a year so far and i can't seem to find the time to even scratch my arse (sorry).
basicaly my wife helen had a bit of a miss hap with the car monday morning. she was just leaving for work, turned the corner of our road, hit some ice and wen't into the kerb. she said she was going pretty slow but not slow enough i guess. anyway i need the advise of my fellow astra owners as regards to repair. the damage (i hope) isnt to bad. from what i can tell i am going to need a new bumper which i have sourced from the forums. i am also going to need a new radiator which i found on net used with 30 day warranty for £25. my main worry is the wheel alignment on the front right wheel. i hope its somthing easy to repair but knowing my luck its not gonna be.
to be honest i don't really have a clue when it comes to repairing cars but what i do know is i can't afford to be ripped of in a garage again (last time went for mot in vaux garage chippenham an was told i need a new seat belt so i told them to fix it. stupid me ended up with a bill for £100 for one seat belt plus £80 labour and £50 for mot). i feel pretty competent with the re spray of the bumper and hope the radiator won't be to much trouble.
i will need some advise though if there is anybody willing to do so or if some kind person won't mind helping a poor sod like me i would be eternally in their debt. im gonna put up some pics and if anyone can spot anything else that would be a great help. sorry for going on and on.
