Yup.  'Wayside Bodyshop' have just submitted their estimate.  Despite
including a full jigging and checking, it's GBP150 less than the first
one.  They're also doing some extra rust prevention for me ...

I'm a long way from what Malcolm did.  Perhaps that explains why the
Lovely Linda[tm] is now driving whenever I see Malcolm.  As a complete
aside - have you noticed that the spectacular shorts have stayed in
the wardrobe since they married?

Ur-quattros are pretty solid beasts.  As things are now, I'm confident
of being back in a position to frighten the unwary within a couple of
weeks.  The insurance company is making nice noises, anyway.
