Was out for a run this evening. Caught a little baby bunny wabbit with the nearside front wheel.

Several miles later at about 90ph there was a horrendous whirring noise, the car lurched to the left, I steered right, there was a MASSIVE bang and then the car straightened out. It seems the wabbit knocked loose the wheel-arch liner which later rubbed on the wheel and was torn to pieces. Its too dark to assess the damage (I have 3 torches but no batteries wtf? )

ah well


note - not the actual bunny involved, purely for illustration purposes.....

meh, just had a quick peek. half the arch liner is still there, the rest is AWOL. The bits that are left are flapping about rubbing on the tyre when turning right.

Also, I mounted all the secondary air injection bits behind the liner there when I did the engine swap, and this incident has broken my custom mounting bracket (cable ties) so its all flapping in the breeze too.

ah well. I will head out to the workshop and get it sorted later.

Also, seeing as it looks unlikely to be sold by next weekend, I need to make another +30bhp decat pipe for the rolling-road day.
