i got backed into.

well after picking up my pizza and reversing out of my park i hear this loud crunching/scraping noise. look back and think Oh Shit ive backed into a car. well it was another panelvan that had hit mine panelvan as he didnt look and started reversing out as well and hit me. thinking the worst i got out and had a look expecting the panel to be pushed in and god knows what else. to my suprise there was no damage to my van other than the black corner bumper having some new white paint on it. the guy was appologising left right and centre for hitting my van but after seeing that there wasnt any panel damage i said dont worry about it, its cool and that was that. had a proper look when i got home and all that i really need to do is bend the corner bumper back into place as it has bent out a little, and polish off the black plastic that is on the paint from the bumper rubbing it. not as bad as i first expected!!
anyway it was kinda funny that 2 panelvans should happen to run into eachother!

Re: i got backed into.

no pics today as it got back after dark. maybe late tomorrow after the missus gets back from work, unless i give her the fairlane for the day then it will be earlier.

oh and Phat XD, he said sorry about 15 times i reckon.....think he was a bit scared as my missus bailed towards him before i hammered back into the car park, ripped the hand brake on before i had stopped, slammed my door and stomped around the back of the van to see what the damage was.
poor guy probably shit!!!
