    Unhappy I just made a hole in a chassis rail!!!



    Jacking the car up on my trolley jack and didn't notice a split pin missing out of the jack. Jack collapsed and dropped the car on a corner of the jack, punching a hole in one of the box sections under the car......

    ..... after a swift change of underwear the damage doesn't look too bad, a quick coat of underbody wax to protect it but its left one hell of a dent in the underside.

    Ooooooopsy!!!
