Default The Great White Bonne Curse Continues...

All I have to say is that Good Friday was not so good for Ryan.

Last night I got a phone call from Ryan (JLAudioEclipse) saying that he just got hit head on in his Bonne. Didn't get much detail into what happend but I know the other driver got a ticket so it must of not been Ryan'* falt. Ryan drove it home but said he had to smash the hood down so he could see over it. He said the upper radiator support is so messed up that it pushed the A/C condensor, radiator, and fans against the engine block. At least he is already went to work taking the thing apart and seeing the extent of the damage and what needs to be done. It looks like the Bonne will be out of commission for a little while since Ryan'* is more then likly going to be doing some big performance upgrades with the reconstruction.

So far the list of parts needed are: radiator support (Ryan said the one their now is trashed), hood, grill, bumper, bumper cover, drivers headlight/corner marker, headlight covers, radiator/A/C condensor, high and low fans...

I'm in Chicago for the weekend and then fly to NYC for a few days. Once I'm back in Michigan I'll make sure to get pictures if Ryan'* has not by then.

On the lighter side... I got my Bonne running for the first time in almost 5 months! If all goes to plan IDD should be fun!

Wow, I feel really sorry for him. Hopefully some good can come out of this (performance upgrades), and he doesn't get ripped off.
