Re: Bloody Hail Storms - NSW

I can't complain, the other side of the garage had my RS2000 in it, so I can't be too greedy, rofl. The Commodore copped cracked window seals and dents in this downpour before it got moved undercover, rofl.

Re: Bloody Hail Storms - NSW

Spewin what part of sydney do you live in. I was at work today (campbelltown) and noticed the rain sounded a little nosiey on the roof and noticed 2-3 small marble sized balls of ice, now theres 2 beaut lines from where it was parked to the inside of the shed. Lucky for me i had 2,ooo sq to park in.

You're kidding right???

AN ED XR in good nick these days is getting rare, and hail damage
is a pretty savage way of getting a free paint job!!

Look after your baby, I regret selling my XR6 & XR8 real bad..........

Re: Bloody Hail Storms - NSW

At my house on the central coast, we got a whole 10 seconds of hail before it stopped. Rained pretty heavily though. My girlfriend in Woy Woy got about 10 mins worth which was kinda bad.

Good to see that you got the car undercover. Im startin to like the Focus's more and more since my mate got one.

Re: Bloody Hail Storms - NSW

Well I put the AWD Terry to good use only to get to the Sydney airport to find it closed for over an hour. Something about lightning potentially striking the plane and killing ground crew - fair enough I guess.

Fortunately I missed getting hailed upon. I just got to drive through fog, torrential rain, navigate the icy, branch littered flooded roads, and avoid everyone else either diving for cover or forging on regardless.
