Christ, and I thought I was having a bad week! I can only imagine how gutting that is after two years of work, and knowing how particular you are about getting everything perfect, Ian, I guess that was two years of hard work too. :cry: Horrible to see :shock:

yeah, it's a bit demoralising but after the year I had last year, car problems are easy to deal with..... I'll just put it behind me and move on.

I'm too scared to check mine now after seeing those photos Ian. Sorry to hear about this, it must be heartbreaking after putting in so much planning and effort. :(

Good luck

That's horrendous. I have never seen anything nearly as bad as that.
When in doubt....hit the gas.

Ian,

That's tragic mate.

We all know how much work you put into the car.
