mad Pics of Damage From Superlows

Some of you may remember a while back where I made a post of how I screwed my gearbox mount and made the radiator fan rub on the radiator. Well now I have pics so you can all see what happens when you crawl over the speedbump things at Chermside shopping centre in the top carpark repeatedly when trying to find a carpark.

Bent Gearbox mount from the front of car facing the rear


Same thing but a view from the rear of the car facing the front


My Second screwed radiator


I don't know why but I havent been bothered to buy a new gearbox mount for it. I'm not sure if a new mount will totally fix it because if you look closely the part of the subframe/floor is bent where the gearbox mount goes. Anyway I'll get it sorted out one day

Re: Pics of Damage From Superlows

That is real hard damage. I wouldn't want this stuff happening at all. I guess nobody would!

Re: Pics of Damage From Superlows

OMG you attempted chermside roof carpark with superlows, geez, but hell i wouldnt even go up there with lows let alone superlows. I have sympathy but personally it was expected.
