    BigGrin: Well it set out to be :Smile: Firstly went to morry's to fill up and grab a bit of shopping so reversed up to the hedge bottom in the car park and decided we were just a little stuck out at the front. Decided to back into hedge and give it a little shove -watched carefully as the ass end touch the hedge then bang -there was a bloody post in there :Doh: snapped a 2 ins by about a foot long bit off the bottom of the bumper :Smile::Eeek: and got a lot of ear ache
    Then pulled up to a set of traffic lights waiting for the change -felt the throttle just go :Eeek: had to simply let it go on tickover through the lights which by this time the traffic from the other side was bearing down on us ::bigsmile: so I remembered to stick hazard lights on :Smile: got a few horn blows from both front and rear ::bigsmile: (as if it bothered me ) then I got onto a small side street (still on tick over) pulled up on kerb and had a look under the van ::bigsmile:A clip had come off and let the cable/rod come off its socket -simply shoved it back on and used a tie wrap to hold it there until we got home :thumb:

    Glad you got home safe and sound eventually. These things are so annoying.

    Already super glued it back on Bob -about 1 min :thumb::winky:

    I could fill and repaint, but it will only cost seven quid for a new 2 mtr piece and about 15 mins to remove and replace :thumb:Then it will take longer to clean the spray gun than to spray it ::bigsmile:
