Cracks & Collision

You thought I was done fixing my car?! Well of course not!
Just to catch you all up, here’s a quick timeline of the fixtures made to my Suzuki Swift:

It had taken a few weeks for the front bumper replacement to be delivered, and I had eagerly waited for the day to come. As you can see, my car has seen better days:
Roll forward a few more weeks… and alas! It’s arrived! Upon receiving an alert from H, I’d bolted out of the door with eager strides to have the car fixed.
Upon removal, I was surprised to find another unexpected disaster! Ah, the previous few collisions had made more of an impact that intended, and it had completed destroyed the rear casing of the left headlight. The bad news from my mechanic left me rolling with laughter. Of course it did! Just my luck, right?! Unfortunately for me, although H would be able to re-attach the headlight bracket, it wouldn’t be much help in relation to fixing an already broken headlight.
Despite this, H did a fantastic job changing my front bumper:
It’s been a few weeks since I’d had alterations done to the car (both headlights and front bumper). While my bank account has seen happier days, I’m glad to tell you all that the front of my car is looking spectacular! Although I can’t predict the future, I don’t intend on smashing the car into anything… at least not anytime soon!
H has ‘kindly’ given me the remnants of the car parts for me to frame.
Just remember, kids. Be safe behind the wheel…!
