    Don’t be too disheartened. Did you see the state on my P38 when I had it first??? Onwards and upwards! :) Plastic to metal ;)

    Beeswax works well and lasts longer, needs to be warmed up for ease of application.

    Well, after a couple of weeks ago the rubber bumper joint was hanging out both ends. I just pulled it off. The Bumer only cost me 170€ that's all I'm grateful for after the whole episode. Now the insurance want on online questionnaire filled in.. with only the questions that you hey want to ask that are used to create great results on paper. I fućking ignored them....
    Leave it there, I'm done with this thread.
    Unless more stupidity arises from the insurance......:rolleyes:

    I know it’s a while back and must have missed it first time.

    I do like the double jack bit of kit:) that looks handy.

    An appropriate length of rail track will deter any further hog assaults. You will have to fab your own mounts.liquid paraffin floating on warm water will work wonders with the bumper.;).Feel for you mate.
