mad broken my BA ute

i got the first scars on my BA ute on christmas eve

parked in the line, waiting to get fuel and the in front decided to try and reverse through my front bumper.

stuffed the bumper, both headlight protectors and bent the corner of the bonnet.

now i`m back home i guess i will spend tomorrow dealing with the insurance company, try to find someone decent to do a quote etc.

i`m a bit worried about getting the acid rush gold paint matched up.

hi emma

yes, it certainly was the other guys fault

i had been parked about 3 metres behind him for a couple of minutes as we both waited for the car up front to finish getting their fuel and move off.

i saw the reversing lights come on and i hit the horn but he still never looked behind till he hit my car.

then he got out and wanted to know why i was there.
i was not very happy

i have had quote done, etc
waiting to hear back from insurance company now.

Re: broken my BA ute

No,
you can't hit em with your wheel spanner...you may bend it....and then need it..
use his wheel spanner


and on acting like adults... i thought a wheel brace was adult...if we were acting like kids, we'd tell all his mates he kisses his sister, or his mum still wipes his bum LMFAO!!!

Re: broken my BA ute

just picked up my ute from

" McCullocks Bodyworks
Old Bruce Highway
Yandina
QLD 4561
PH 07 5446 7811 "

the job they have done to repair the front from where the guy reversed into it looks great.
colour match looks spot on
