    rolleyes What a plonker...just in time for PVS...typical!

    Well, going to a job this morning, haven't been to the place before, go to drive in through the electric gates down a ramp, come to the bottom and..."crunch"...then I see little bits of spoiler flick infront of me, I had caught the stopper for the gates!

    After plenty of swearing to myself, I spent half the day in a mood, then I decided it needed to be fixed in time for PVS...this is bloomin typical of my luck, nearly blinded myself last night by leaning over a fence to get the kids football and put a bamboo stick in my eye that was supporting the fence! So got all the materials I would need to fix it and set to work tonight.

    I usually take the spoiler off if I am going somewhere I don't know!! Just didn't this time as I was told there are no speed bumps and no steep inclines, which there weren't! It was just bound to happen the one time I don't follow my instincts!

    Rant over..here are the pics...

    The damage...



    Sanded, filled, ready to primer...

    Typical, sounds like you have got it in hand mate. Sorry though, I had to giggle at the bamboo rod - hope there is no long term injury for you or the spoiler.
