Car was on the road, FIRST EVER drive out of my street, went to the local servo, filled her up, was in a good mood so I went for a short cruise.
2x lane road - Gregory Hills Dr, im cruising up the hill and an idiot comes flying up behind me and slams into me. no idea why he didn't just go around me, no idea how he didn't see me.
UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

but I promise you, I still have unfinished business for this little Gem . . . . . ITS NOT OVER!!!

Tracked down a boot lid, going to the panel beater to put it on the rack tomorrow and get the corner pulled back.
The Left quarter has a kink, so the plan is to get the left quarter squared up with the boot lid, pop out the ding if it doesn't pop itself, and then get it home again, and see where we are at.

I took it to a panel beater and he pulled it straight, and got the Left quarter straightened, straightened out the right quarter and beaver enough to do the repair.
The RHS lower windscreen area has come good too.
Its now home again.

Was that done at Gemini repairs in the end? I'm surprised that they did that.

We just borrowed their pulling jig, just to get it lined back up again good enough to do the rest ourselves.

Ive trimmed down the quarter and beaver, cut everyting back, and drilled out almost all of the spot weld joins. just need to unpick the inner guard section, then its time to cut the other panels off.
