just last night after work I was going to see the semifinal of the Mexican football on a bar, there I was on a stop light when a idiot guy crash into my MINI, I step out of the car and there I was looking at the damage, the guy didn´t had insurance and the car was a 94 mustang horrible black many more scars look on this car like is normal to crash daily, the guy does not have money to pay so the insurance company took for guaranty the horrible mustang the police came, you can imagine that I did not so the semifinals. I'm very angry, for many of you will not understand how you can drive a car without insurance, sadly in this country you can, Mexico has many beautiful things but many others like this one and the worst poverty and lack of education.

well maybe I will get to see the finals and have a pint of Guinness.

Cheers

www.blacklion.com.mx (the bar) im one of the owners and maybe if you come to Mexico city one day you can come and visit us.

Rica--sad story. But it seems all that is damaged is plastic, not metal. And the good news is that plastic trim is very easy to replace and inexpensive, I just replaced it on my car. The easiest way to get to it is to jack up that back wheel, then inside you will see plastic screws in the wheel well...unscrew all of those and you can remove the plastic liner and get to the back of the screws that hold on those plastic trim pieces. Just replace with new ones and you may need to replace the white plastic clips as well...all available from your dealer and should be less than $40usd. The bumper would of course have to be sanded and repainted if you wanted to do that.

Yeah that sucks big donkey balls.

Well if you're a PUMAS fan, at least your boys won. If you're not a PUMAS fan, then you had a REALLY bad day. And if you're a Club America fan, then you must have started out having a bad day.

:D

Get that baby fixed and that smile will come back in a hurry.

Fark man, I was expecting a write-off!

It is about $US50 to fix I would imagine... not the best out of your pocket though.

I hope your team won. When I'm in Mexico, I will pop on over to say HI:cool:
