Latest on crash repairs
After a brief, unintended spell away from the q-list, my latest news: there
are NO 1986-1990 Audi 80s in the Dutch scrapyards with their front end
intact. Short of hitting one from behind myself ;-) I'm left with no option
but to get new panels. Total cost is $1000 including paint. Ouch.
One unexpected bonus: my mechanic friend got me a brand-new water pump
(also a casualty in the accident) for free. Claimed to be stuck, but freed
after one try. At least I have ONE unexpected windfall, albeit a small one
($85 with my discount)...
