    Managed to find a post sticking out of the ground today that was not well marked or had any sighs to warn of it being there, the 1st i knew it was there when i backed into the tw@t!

    Can i do the land owners?

    Do them for putting a post there and not warning the general public of its dangers, paint it flipping yellow for a start!

    No mate, the polish wont fix this one, but I have a mate who is a dab hand at fixing at fixing stuff like this and I trade time with him so it wont cost me anything apart from paint, i work for him for free and he works for me for free, He is the paint sprayer for all the main dealers in Northampton, they get the work in and he does if for them, so I will be fitting the sensors and then a bit of rubbing/filling then a blast with the paint gun and all will be forgiven,

    The annoying factor is i was meant to fit the sensors 2 weeks ago and never got round to it, so this is my punishment for being a lazy so and so, :banghead: it could have been a lot worse.

    now with the sensors, they colour is a slightly darker, but when the bumper is re painted the guy will blow the sensors over for me,
    Took about 3 hours to fi, most of that time was getting the bumper off and all the fiddly bits inside that took the time up, once the bumper was off it was drilled and fitted in 30 mins and the it was the button up, enjoy

    I (ashamedly) did exactly the same thing a couple of years ago in Sheffield centre in a Volvo T5.

    It was dark and raining and I was dropping someone in town and the post was lower than the back end and unpainted!

    Was cursing myself all the way to the bodyshop!

    New bumper, spray job, £500- gutted.

    At least I'm more observant now!
