Nothing exciting,
However I thought Id share, get some new material on here at least :)

So, cars been busy last month or so. I haven't even driven it or seen it for the last month.

The problems sarted in November when I bought a hardtop for it. The hardtop was silver, so obviously I had it painted, it looked great. About a month later I had a nasgy crack in the glass and was covered by my insurance so I had Autoglass come and fit new glass. However the hardtop was left damaged, glue everywhere marks where last window was pryed out and paint flaked off. After several complaints, Autoglass agreed it was thei fault and agreed to pay out just under 700 for it to be painted and glass to removed and refitted by a 3rd party(yes its mega money for a roof)The paint was done by Lemass, as car was going there anyway. It was ging there, because of the lovely job I was talking about on page one where I had my sills repaired was a bodge. I was left with fresh metal glued into place over old rust, and the problem had no got much worse than it originally was. So much so, both inner and outer skins on drivers side had to be cut out and completely replaced. I'm also having drivers door painted at same time, along with few other minor defects.
Still waiting for autoglass to actually pay lemass, luckily I have written confirmation of them agreeing to do the work (month ago) I will never be using them again, and have since heard lots of horror stories relating to damage to vehicles. Anyway, I have access to a latop for a while so quickly uploading some pictures
