    woopsie daisy

    after taking my old mans mk2 mondeo zetec-s out to petrol in it at the petrol station, i decided to take it through the car wash as it was filthy. Forgetting that the aerial on top is in a different position to the astras (and longer 2). After putting the code in and letting it go through the cycle, the blow fan kicked in and started driving the car off. It went over once and worked its way back .. as it did.. it got to just above the windscreen and (u can guess whats going to happen next) suddenly.. ''KA-TOINK'' and i see the aerial fly over the bonnet and land on the floor.. Snapped


    so now i've got to go down halfords and buy a new one for him.. £13.00. turning out to be an expensive car wash..

    Rather embarrassed to say the least

    i aint told him yet.. i was hoping to go to halfords and buy a new one and shove it on without telling him but, on closer inspection it wont work because unlike astra's, which have the pin on the bottom of the aerial so obviously if it snaps u can just take a pair of pliars to the base and twist it out.. Mondeo's have the pin on the base and u screw the aerial to it so i've got to go and buy him a new base and aerial which wont be today so i'll have to tell him..

    i may buy him a few cans later and get him drunk then tell him :P soften the blow.
