      Nah mate some smart repairs, scuffs here and there and a rear quarter.

      If you don't mind me askin Daz, how come you got the job? No offence like, it's just I remember you work out of your garage don't you?

      Doesn't surprise me, they've taken it up the rear enough times this season.

      No we work out of a unit now mate, we get insurance work in and lots of recommendations from classic cars/kit cars/modifiers owners clubs etc, we got the job because we were recommended by a dealer who we do a lot of work, apparently he's a good friend of his agent.

      Sweet, word of mouth could make you the players man to go to. All you've got to do now is hire a scally to scratch them up.  ;)

      They fully aluminium?

      Had a few aluminium cars in work and they're a pain in the ass, replacing rear quarters on 7 series bmws is a hell of a nightmare

      Check out the price of a used Jeep in the UK, bet you could buy a new one for the same money as a three year old car over here.

      Yea I paid $4.14/gal for Premium this morning. That's about as high as it's been in a long time. When I was in high school (admittedly a long time ago) I remember it being $.85/gal. Those were the days ;D

      I don't even look at fuel prices anymore, I just go fill up, pay then sit in my car and weep before pulling away.

      There's no use worrying about it honestly, nothing I can do to control prices and I'm not going to drive a Prius so...oh well.

      What was the wrangler like to live with ( apart from the hood ) was thinking of getting one as a second car.

      Just leased a VW Toureg for myself and a Range Rover Evoque for the wife....sounds fancy but the sals you can get over here in the US and the fact that i can get a tax break on both due to our work means that it works out to be a steal!
