Hello Boys and Girls

Well the jack has been off the road for a little over a week now after someone took out the rear end. I am wrapped in the service provided by my insurance company. Everything I asked for has been done, I have had several calls giving me an update and things like the longrange tank which have been replaced (currently getting made), they have used the same brands as was on the Jack. They have checked and replaced parts, I hadn't requested or thought of.

I understand things may be different if it was my fault, but I will be sticking with AAMI while i recieve this service. (Dont work for them or anything, just very happy with the service I have had)

The Jack is due back this week and just has to go back to have the longrange tank fitted.

cheers

Great to hear Adam, and as long as it sounds the same as it did, all will be good.

Cheers

Why is it that when you have crownies in the fridge, your mate who never even calls you suddenly turns up on the doorstep...??? Reckon he could smell them from Mooroolbark. In short, not long at all... Thanks...

G'day Adam,
Sorry mate, I wasn't aware you'd had your ass knocked off (so to speak.....;-)))

Glad to read that it's all coming together for you without any yelling and screaming and threats of legal action etc (which we hear of all too often).

Hope that Jack goes just as good as before, once you get it back.

Cheers mate

Roachie

Hi Crazie,

Sorry to hear about your rearend being re-arranged, but happy to hear of the good service from your insurer.
I do however have a question regarding the rear drivers side light assembly in the bumper. If the insurance company is replacing this for a newwie and there is not much wrong with your old one could you MM me. As my wife decided to re-arrange the rear end of her 01 Roo but the indicator assembly has never been fixed by her slack old hubbie.

Cheers and hope you are back on the road (I mean off road) again real soon. Trevor.

Hi Trevor

I will let you know mate. The lights were not damaged as most of the commodore went under the Jack, I am not sure if they have replaced or reused them. The lights for the number plate area were smashed. Will MM a bit later to let you know.

ROTFALMAO! Oh that's precious! "Always think saftey". Good stuff!

I just finished making my tounge for the bike carrier, it's nice and long so that you can fit the carrier on past the spare wheel carrier. I was thinking of leaving that one in there with the two pointy up hooks on it, but not sure how weather I want to attract the attention of the boys in blue. It looks harmells with the bikes on, but real nasty with the carrier off! :->>>

So did you ask him where he wanted you to drop him and his car off after he hit you? LOL.

I'm saving those pics, they're great!
