AH!

That sucks. This happened to a friend of mine when he was driving 90km/h in his Ford Contour on a thankfully empty road. The hood snapped back so far it collapsed the first third of the roof and destroyed the windshield.

There's now more Bondo on his car than in all of the Canadian Tires combined, and it's rusting only a few months later, courtesy of J&S "Auto Body" in Nobleton, Ontario.

I hope your car isn't wrecked too bad, and if it is, research a very good body shop before hand.

Ouch! :(

The hood is aluminium and not really fixable.

I've seen some SEC hoods on eBay lately. May try to pick up a used one in useable condition.

I know of an SEC hood that is in the Boston area that they'd like to get out of the shop. Are you interested in it?? It should go cheap.

Hey Axel
Is there any problem with your white rim centers?As far as a brakedust ?
I have black ones on the white car and I have a hard time to see what to do.I think white would look better.I love it on your car!
If you can please e-mail me some side pictures?!
Thanks ,Andrew

Hi Andrew, Sorry to hear about your bad luck. Which car was it? Don't feel bad, we all have bad days and at least you are OK.
