  1. Good news for the new year, got to pick her up next weekend.
  2. It looks like I will be off the road now for at least 5-6 weeks. The parts will have to come from Japan so it will be almost 2 months before I can drive her again. But there's nothing to stop the rest of you meeting up somewhere if not in Yarmouth. I guess I will not be trying to organise anymore this year now, as the winter will be well set in by time its done and it wont be worth putting her back on road then until March time.
  3. Err wrote off after leaving for a quote? do tell. I think they will go up to 2/3rds the value of the car before they write it off so at £4795 that would put value of car at about £7200. I think it is but once you take of the modifications which are not insured its a 17 year old low mileage JDM 350z, not sure if they would see it that way. I finally heard back from guy at the pig farm place today, they are accepting liability for it and their insurance company will be in touch with me so that's good news. Also I can deal direct with them without getting my insurance company involved, more good news as there will be no claim through my insurance. He even said to make sure its done by a reputable firm who does good work, even if it costs more, there will be no complaints from them but don't use East Bilney he said. Maybe he has heard something about them. So it looks like it will get sorted by them in time, I am feeling a bit better about it now but I'm still gutted about it.
  4. Thanks for offer of help, I have a feeling this could get a bit messy with the insurance and may end in my car getting written off. If that is the case I will have to buy it back off them and buy the bits myself, I've had a quote of between 700-1000 on labour for fitting and spraying all the parts. Another problem will be getting the right parts as there are some differences with it being a JDM.
  5. Sorry guys I wont be able to make it this Sunday, Zed is off the road. You may or may not of heard of the incident on the Norwich bypass when 60 pigs escaped from one of the farms on Thursday. One of them ran out right in front of me while I was driving at 65-70mph down there and hit the front bumper. Me and my wife where ok but the front of the car was not. Damage so far is new front bumper, washer bottle, headlight (bracket is broken), wing liner, slightly bent front wing and various metal brackets, number plate and holder and various little bits and pieces missing. Pretty gutted about it as I got an estimate from East Bilney who is the company my insurance use and they said £4795 which would mean they write the car off. Spoke to director of company who own the pigs and they say they are insured for damage caused by the pigs so I a hope I will not have to go to my insurance and work direct with there insurance. I had another quote which was over a £1000 less so I am hopeful we can get something sorted if not it will have to be second hand parts off the forum.
  6. Same format again if everyone is up for it. Next Norfolk-Yarmouth Mini Meet scheduled for 22nd September 2019 at 7.15pm outside Wellington Pier/Winter gardens. 1. TimC 2.
  7. Sorry I will not be able to attend as I will be at work and it looks like it will be a busy one. I don't have the pleasure of weekends off through the summer months. So looks like 22nd might be a good idea and maybe we may still get the tail end of the summer for it.
  8. Yea we had a good meet, chatted for a couple of hours but it was cold (maybe that was just me). I think that may show in the following photos, a little bit of camera shake maybe. I think we had yet more confirmation that no two 350s are a like, so many possible combinations of modifications. I also noted a couple of more little corrections I need to do. We will have to get one more in next month if everyone is up for it, maybe 15th or 22nd. We could do another in Yarmouth or maybe Norwich if anyone can come up with a better location.

    Yes that would be good, it would be interesting to see how he does it . Yes next meet is tomorrow, I see you have already put your name down
  10. She certainly looks different with the white stripe, cant say I have seen a 350 with one before. What other problems do you have? Not too many hopefully.

    That's really good, next time we meet up we will have to check it out, I'm sure it will look so much better when its done. You will have to let me have his details just in case I need anything done in the future.
