    Still doing minor changes to the car, changing bits i'm not entirely happy with, one of these was the solid engine mounts, I gave them a try but couldn't live with the vibes to be honest so I picked up a pair of hockey pucks which I drilled out, I also turned up a couple of aluminium cups for the pucks to sit in and it gives a bit of side support to stop them squishing out sideways.

    I also changed the rear windows, I originally had 1/4" acrylic but was never happy with the look, they seemed too thick, anyway I changed them for 1/8" and now they look much better.

    I'm starting to think this car maybe cursed [​IMG] Sorted everything for the Supernats until today [​IMG], Willys all fine and on the button but on the way home some little scrote on a scooter hit my car doing 40mph, couldn't believe the damage a scooter could do !!! Car is a writeoff as airbags gone off and all sorts of damage [​IMG]
    I tried to hire something with a towbar but nothing available, at 1800hrs I had all but given up hope but I got a call from Dave the MOT guy who said he had a Transit with a hook I could borrow [​IMG] , this meant 2 trips, one with the trailer tent and one with the car, not too bad I thought [​IMG] on the way back from picking up the Transit I got a text from Mister Tee on here saying he could detour and tow the trailer tent for me [​IMG]
    So Cinders will go to the ball [​IMG]

    I can't thank Dave & Mo enough for helping out, its great to have such wonderful friends, thanks guys.

    That sucks Steve. How is the scooter rider doing? That had to be a hell of a hit to do that much damage.

    Steve, Don was just telling me last night he saw that on Facebook...........bummer. From the looks of it that scooter guy will be driving a little more carefully in the future ! :eek::eek: I've seen accident scene pictures, but that one takes the cake.

    See, Steve, and you were the guy who never cared for suede or satin paint jobs !! :D Man, that thing looks and sounds great.

    When you came around the corner it reminded me of the movie "Hot Rod".
