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. 

Deffo gonna look into that as tbh, I'm not a fan of filler! Know I'm going to respray the bonnet and VTiS front lip at some point as the paint is shocking on both now with tiny stone chips (not so tiny ones on the lip!) but filler always sinks/shrinks/cracks over time.

Glad to see that she's tucked up safe before these next storms kick off properly.

 

Nice that you got hold of that trim as new as well. 

More storms due?  Really windy here again. Which is usually the backlash of what goes on up there

LOL nope, DD has been busy helping us improve the garden....transported 13 slabs (heavy duty thick ones too, not the usual B&Q cheapies!) in her boot.

Did make the handling...errrr..interesting in the high winds we had! Just shows how bloody great practical cars these decks really are though, although have to say I won't be putting that many in her again. think that was probably the max weight she's ever had/ever will have in her. 

 

Oh, and she's filthy from a weekend on our roads that are covered in some of the shittiest salt known to mankind, god knows whats in it but it makes one hell of a mess of the cars. Don't worry though, after she was unloaded, she was straight in for a bath! Now all nice and clean and shiney again.

I did a few runs with a load of block paving in tubs' boot once. Not sure the rear suspension was ever the same again :lol:

 

Can't wait for the salt to feck off so I can get the HUD meister out again.

So, not much been happening lately for DD, just enjoying her new life cruising about all the lovely wee country roads we have here. Due the MINIs MOT coming up and needing a tyre or two replaced (and I'm skint!) decided that Poppy could borrow DD's shoes for the mot for now. So DD's now wearing her OEM alloys, which are still in amazing nick considering they're all original, never been refurbed. Weird seeing her on the 14's again lol
