Hi guys as some of you know my si got involved in a crash on a mini roundabout on sunday by a young driver who didnt give way to me :( he admitted fault so its all going through insurance atm the si is going to be checked by an engineer at home within 48 hours, ive got an agreed value on it but worried that whoever fixes it may find it hard to source the parts :?

Ah that's shit mate.
Obviously push for maximum value, but what ever you do, don't let them take it anywhere!
Lock it away if you have to!

Do you have an agreed valuation.

I'm not sure how things stand nowadays, but you used to be able to push for a repair based on the insured valuation trumping the assessors assessment, certainly on more unique stuff, in this case, modified.

May be outdated now though...

Sort of well the insurance company have authorised the repair but the bodyshop have said thry can only get a new headlight, no wing, no indiactor, no bumper, no fog light wiring, and apprently they have stopped giving customers money to source the parts, so ive got to wait till wednesday for an update :rolleyes:

Update :)

getting a settlement from the insurance company and this afternoon i dropped the si off at the bodyshop

im geetting all the damage repaired and while its there im getting a few other bits sorted so its mint again as there were a few bits that were annoying me

so its getting through insurance money:

Brand new old stock fiesta si bumper that i picked up from portsmouth


Image

Also found a brand new si fog surround in my garage that i forgot about and one secondhand one
supplied the bumper with new stainless steel fixings for the fog surround and fog lights so i can loose the rusty ones

brand new genuine ford wing
lower valance panel
brand new valeo headlight
Brand new genuine ford indiactor lense
replacement headlight protector from my mate andys old si

And other bits im getting done while the car is there is

freshly painted bonnet (was only paint damaged in the crash on the inside but it was full of stone chips so thought may as well get it painted while the bumper and wing are being done

also having the bootlid and spolier repainted as the prevoius bodyshop didbt do a great job on it as they just painted over a scratch on one part which annoyed me and i also want the inside of the boot painted and laquered like my old boot was when i had it painted back in 2008 and the bootlid is badly alined so thats being sorted

Its also having a new nearside rear arch as i noticed a slight bubble coming through and thought id get it done and also it had a leaky petrol filler cap last year which damaged some paint

and also after a headache of trying to sort the single wiper ive decided to go back to 2 wipers again which involves a fair bit of work as i had the hole smoothed back in 2008 :doh: and while its being done im having the windscreen rubber replaced with a brand spanking new one as i think there might be a tear in it somewhere causing a footwell leak

box of spares for the si secondhand light, indiactor etc for now till i get the new bits sourced in the next day or two and replacement fog light wiring i had spare in the garage

Image


Pic of the si just before taking it to the bodyshop

And the replacement hire car from hertz as the focus eco boost smelt of cigarette smoke really badly and was giving me a headache

so got this beautiful 63 plate mondeo titanium estate such a lovely car to drive :)

Image

The bodyshop guy is going to send me pics of the repair process as well :)
