Warning!

Just a warning to everyone. You know thoses orange council poles? The tall ones they use for road works and so on. Yeah well they aren't as flexiable as they look!!!! Ha ha. I hit one doing about 40 or 50 clicks (dont ask) and the f***er did some damage! Bent my light lid, cracked the mounts on my front bar and so on! Also as it made its way up my bonnet onto my roof then onto my boot it scuffed up my paint! So as fun as it may seem to wanna hit em, dont! ha ha ha.

**** Happens.

the base of the cone actually came in good use to straighten the steering arm on that cortina.

Na she is all good, and thanks for the laugh guys, at least i aint the only one. Trust me i didnt line it up LOL. Im due for a spray job anyway and my bar was a bit banged up already. I managed to fix the lid and get it sort of back the way it should be. Still works!!! She'd be painted by now if i hadnt been jacked on my trans!!!!!! Had a trans on the way out but still working, took it out and got a "rebuilt" trans off a "mate" that suprise suprise has a blown second gear!!! So im out of pocket $700 bucks and no better then i started!!! Talk about gettin screwed! Anyways thats my vent.

Catch ya fellas.
