    Default dinted the wing with me chin !!

    had a nightmare day !
    Took me about 3 hours to change the front ARB bushes, but got there in the end.
    Took the front bumper off to replace the front crash bar and repair the headlight brackets.
    Was putting the wheels back on and tightening the bolts when the wheel brace slipped and i banged my chin off the top of the wing putting a 'chin-size' dint in the top of it

    Then went to start the car and the battery was flat, walked in the house and my lass started screaming "Your car, its rolling off the drive". I ran out to see it bounce off the neighbours car opposite. Luckily he had parked with full right lock on, so mine bumped off his tyre and didnt take the side off his car out.

    Sitting with a few cans now, i deserve them
