So....

If anyone knows of a maroon facelift model going as a donar, i'd really like to know, she will be repaired. Similarly, if anyone wants to make me an offer i'm open. She's one of the best examples of a GS i've seen, has benefit from my lavish attention over the past three months and was really something to be proud of.

Hit a patch of snow, i didn't even know it had been snowing until it lept out at me on a bend, and i slid into a wrongly placed van. Thankfully i was only doing twenty or so.

Damage:

driver side wing, lamp and washer, front cross member, valance, bonnet radiator. Chassis is fine, looks a hell of a lot worse than it is.

No injuries, except pride?

If you are looking for a donor car or just the parts that you need you could try CP Motors. I have dealt with them before and they do look after the customer.

I'm fine thanks Bill, the most irksome bit is the fact i'd spent the day before clay baring every panel and then t cut with a buffer. at least i hadn't waxed it yet i guess.

Will try CP when i've taken full stock. cheers

Unfixable, so if anyone wants bits of the engine, then they're on offer so get in touch, the rest I hope is transplantable.

Picked up a dark green N reg 460 2.0i CD, very tidy, going in for full belt renewal and a quick once over tomorrow morning @ P.W Autos, Sheffield, who have been very accomodating so far.
