Received a call from Ford SDAC PJ , Accident parts just arrived after just 3 days from thailand. Service guy there David Chan was a great help, even came back on a Leave day. According to them the Ranger would be ready to roll again by new years day.

Update, after dismantling more innards were damaged in the collision causing delay in the repair ... new ETA, 1st week of Jan 2013 for the repair completion date.

Received the Ranger back from SDAC yesterday. Paint job on the bumper was superb. Outstanding from SDAC is the left & right wheel arch cover. Items will arrive next week.

Ranger invoIved in an accident

Ranger was involved in an accident with a tax driven by a drunk taxi driver and a speeding BMW.  Damage was not very extensive. Bumper, grille and air condition condenser was damaged in the accident however condition of the other Car was far worst. Ranger really lived up to its motto......Built Tough . Miraculously bumper sprung back to its origins form after a few hours. Scratches polished off nicely, only the moutings broke during the impact.

New Fog Light Cover Installed

The new chrome fog light cover for the T6 from Thailand installed. Installation of the Trim was very easy. Firstly some acetone wipe was used to remove any grease or oil residue from the fog Iight area where the trim mounts, then the mounting tape is prepped for installation. Installations is as simple as placing the cover on the correct position and pressing it down for mounting. Fit was amazing, looked as if it was an OEM item.

Shoei X-Eleven Helmet partially restored

My 5 year old Shoei X11 helmet badly needs some TLC. Although the external shell is in imaculate condish but the cushion and padding inside is badly worn out. Manage to find a seller for the padding and after a week long wait, courier finally delivered the cheek pads to my humble abode. Installation was a 5 min affair with 3 fasteners on each side, the cheek pads snapped in place. Only thing now is to replace inner helmet liner to fully restore the norick abe replica Shoei X-Eleven to its former glory.
