The Best Plans Of Mice & Men...
Often go astray.. Last night, one of the mechanics at the shop where Rose is being worked on, accidentally ran her into the back of the managers F250 pickup truck. It is a big thing with a steel bumper on the rear. Rose lost out in the crash that ensued... He was not watching what he was doing, saw that he was about to hit the truck and instead of hitting the brakes, his foot hit the accellerator.. You can see the results in the pix below.
I have since found out that the fender panels, including the headlight "eye" areas are available through Bird Nest. As is the center piece between the two eyes.. I am told they are spot welded in place at the factory and will have to be taken off and replaced with new panels, which is what I think they are going to do. All at their expense. I also have a radiator leak, and the hood is jammed so we cannot see the damage under the hood yet. This has sure ruined my day! The owner is very upset about what happened, and so am I, but I am keeping cool because one heart attack is enough! Here are some pix.
