    Was leaving pedders after having my thuds looked at going for a test spin with the steeda topmounts on with niges' adapters... gate wasn't secured, swaying in wind as i got to it and it took a chunk out the side :(:(:(.

    Worst of all, i've even got a video of it occurring which is like torture!

    Oh MM.....that looks horrible. I'm really sorry to see that. Hopefully the insurance/repair is a pain free as possible :(

    I hope so too, i've even got a video of it happening from the security camera's, i'm heart broken and it appears that the property owners, are claiming it was avoidable (like you know i can avoid a gate fluttering in the wind just as i go past, or you know, like they should have used the fucking deadlock).

    I've got a few quotes, a local guy who's painting my 350 diff (from mac) wants £90 and i know he does an insane job (fixed my bumper when i reversed into my gfs wall, and that was on the arch line too), and also fixed numerous corsa alloys for me...
    My mate who does the painted plastics wants 4k, but he wants to strip a new fender, door, side skirting and bumper on so the colour match is proper
    and then Pumabuild have quoted £350 to do it.

    It's a fairly simple fix looking at it, should be a case of pulling the hole out, beating the panel, and then welding together, blend painting etc.

    Honestly, the worst part is, i couldn't avoid it, i watched it happen and it was totally uncontrollable, and breaks my heart to see the car wounded :(:(

    Oh No! feel the pain.

    If the property owners were negligent by not securing the gate then you should be able to claim against their insurers. Maybe call up one of those 'accident management' companies to see if it's a straightforward claim. Worth a quick call?

    There's that.

    However, yes, it's negligence, i've already put it through a lawyer friend who saw the video and immediatley told me if they dont pay to take it to court, it'd be an open close case because they have no leg to stand on, other than apparently being able to avoid it if i was some ken block drift god and dropped the handbrake, hammered accelerator and skidded round the closing gate :lol::lol::lol: (which really, isn't an excuse!)

    Took mine out in the cold and wet in its new MP4S shoes and can confirm to any MY18 buyer that these tyres make the Mustang feel more sure footed in the 9 months of the year we have this kind of crap weather :thumbsup:

    Used the chassis washer to get the crud and salt off and slid it back in the garage :D

    See whoever painted this...don't get them to fix your wing ;)
    Though going by the back end of [MENTION=13920]Enoch[/MENTION] 's it'll look cracking when on.
    Don't know why but I always think that 350 rear end looks rubbish til I see it fitted...
