yep got caught in the war zone today..
got hammered in nedlands where i had to take cover under some trees
in the hilux with the brand new ali trailer on the back...
her is some pics of the trailer..


and a pic across the road



i have never seen anything like it...it was like someone had let rip with a machine gun..
the noise was deafening, leaves and branches where flying off the trees.
once it was over i drove home via the broadway and thomas street where there was all sorts of carnage...mercedes on the verge with windows smashed and covered in dents, the roads surrounding charlies where flooded,traffic lights had been shot out and lying on the roads!!

my lux lost a wind screen,side mirror and dents all over the body!

My husband had the misfortune to be in Nedlands this afternoon also.
The car windscreen and headlights are smashed and the body work looks like orange peel.

The one consolation Steve is that you now don't have to worry about fixing the damage you did when you jack knifed the trailer last weekend

It looked amazing:



Big hailstones, got my car undercover about a minute after it started but still lots of orange peel on the roof



Office got flooded, skylights were smashed and water dripping all over the computers...

When I told the workmates this morning that I hope it rains soon I didn't mean this!

The red rocket took a battering. Looks like someones pogo sticked on my bonnet and smashed my indicator cover off as well. Was on hold to the insurance company for 90 minutes before giving up.

Our car is a write off.

SGIO were extremely friendly and helpful despite the pressure they must be under atm. Five stars for service ( a long wait on hold would have been unavoidable under the circumstances.)

Not that I've heard of. Must have been some bruising though.
