haha thanks guys. Yeah, we had the 2nd storm last night but luckily no where near as bad as last one. Carport is still there at least but we've decided that we're going to demolish it when we get a chance as its a ramshackle thing put together by the previous owners and most of the wooden beams are rotten. Gonna build a nice new one (not that we really need it as we have the two garages, although the older one is the "Sher-age" as it's now used as a shed for storing  stuff etc. But nice to have the new garage and once built the new car port as two placed the cars can be sheltered. Trouble is we have 3 cars lol

Sounds like that's a good plan matey. Can you not get a shed for the sherage stuff to change it back to a garage garage :lol:

lol, would be one hell of a shed mate, you seen the stuff we got in there? lmaorlol.gif1 

So, will need to take pics but been busy on DD. Managed to mop and polish all the scratches out on the bonnet and wing so really pleased! Luckily it looks like the wheelbarrow didn't break the paint (god only knows how!) and the dent itself doesnt look too bad now all the marks and scratches are gone. Got off lightly I think!. She's tucked up in the garage now waiting on me getting to the bottom of that leak in the drivers side top of windscreen area. Done loads of tests and still can't find it (and it's now stopped lol) but did notice on the service pdf that there is a type of valve at the bottom of the roof drains in the front. So going to have a look at those and see if they are maybe blocked or something.

:lol: I can imagine mate, I'd love to have a lock up to stash all my bits and bobs. 

That's a relief... Pleased that the scratches came out okay. 

Water leaks seem to be the new enemy (joining rust at the party) for these civics. Such a nightmare to try and track where water comes from.

Glad she's on the mend. Maybe a paintless dent man could fix the dent for you? 

Btw.. not for everyone. But I had a leak when I baught my mb6. I used couple 40m2 smoke bombs. Lit them in the front footwells. After a few minutes, highlighted smoke was getting past the rear windows and also my driver's door. Changed rubbers. Problem solved.

Could be worth a go. Stinks but does the trick

Is that what they use for checking the flue on a boiler? Good tip that.

Just a wee update with photos this time! So managed to get a hold of what are believed to be the last brand new packet of windscreen trim clips in the uk for our cars (although they are in a sealed oem "Rover 400" bag. Got them fitted to the new windscreen trip piece and fitted nice and secure.

And the dent in the bonnet (close up). It looks worse in this photo than it really is.

As can be seen from this angle..

The scratches came out of it all nicely, including the front passenger wing.

Nice one Dave. Get a paintless dent man round for that. Miracle workers. 

A spare washer bottle fell off shelf onto my bonnet a while back. Was furious. Cost me 90 quid but bloke came to my house and would never know it ever happened.
