I take it when you use the loo at the new gradys you dont get covered in that sort of grey garage dust off a carnage of bonnets and doors near the toilet door????lol. When we went down to pick up hana we were standing in there workshop for about 15 min before we realised that chris was standing next to us.It was only when he snieezed and the dust fell off him that we realised he was there

only joking boys

it was nearly 25mins

no i am really joking the new place looks great

cheers tyson

Just a daft question, how is the repair being done around your wide side stripe, or does it have to come off Sad ?

OMG, did you see my naked Flopsy? :wink: :lol: :wink: :lol:

Bozzy - part of the insurance repair plus the additional work that is being done is a complete new set of side stripes, as the old ones have got to come off. The one on the pass side front wing was damaged in the accident.

Darren had already ordered them when I took Flopsy down there, not sure if they are coming via James RG or Rob Grady though, forgot to ask :roll:
Its gonna be weird seeing a cosmetically perfect car - Flopsy had already had a hard life before I bought her, and I was always very conscious of all the little dents and scratches round the car, plus the drivers side wing, which had been hit so hard in the States it had actually split it.

I think for once in my life, when I see my resurrected baby again, I am gonna be totally speechless (and probably cry alot Cry )
