well i had a cr@ppy day yesterday.. it all started in the morning.. i finished work at 6am,got home,stayed awake to take my son to his football training..only for it to be cancelled at last min.

then later i had a big argument with my bank manager,(still not had no sleep),so i thought id go to town to get a bracket for my punchbag..and this happened...

tbh jc... i was in no mood to be arsing about he said if it went over £100 hed have to got thro insurance.. and i really cba with that.. besides no one was hurt and i knew i had a replacement.. the £50 is just a bit of compo for the hassle of painting the replacement..

As JC said i'd need more than £50, A self done respray wont do the car justice so i'd want the bumper done by a pro which is easily £100+ (Last time i enquired about spraying prices it was £80 for a rear bumper but this was 2006 ish). If he'd have paid you £99 no quibble then i'd demand that, not settle for £50.

well ive finished painting the rear bumper today.. and what an @rse of a job it was... every motorfactors i went to only had two small cans of tourmallard in stock... bought the last two in two shops last week... went and bought the last two in two shops this week...

one even went as far as arguing with me that tourmallard green didnt exist!! and that it was tourmalline that i wanted!

till i took him out side and showed him the car,even then he brought a can of tourmalline out to test colour difference!!

anyways the pics..
