I took the car to Central Garage in Irthlingborough to get a quotation for the repairs after Saturday’s adventure.
Looks like it’ll need a fill-and-re-spray to the front panel, a replacement side skirt and a refurbed alloy. Total bill will be in the region of £600!
They think it’ll take a day, maybe two, to repair everything. So I should get it back by Thursday.
I’m just pleased they were able to get it in so quickly. I guess it’s one of the advantages for me that the car industry over here is generally struggling at the moment! I hate driving around in cars that look like they’ve not been looked-after!!!
Then, I’ll need to get it up to PaintShield in Grantham to have the film-protection added. That’ll be another £200…
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
