7:29 am - Sunday - December 10th - GNHS - 41° F, humidity 49%, wind 10 (?) mph out of the north....crystal clear, blue, sunny, WINDLESS skies today with a forecast high of 66° F. On this date in 2013 TLE and I were on our way home from optometrist appointments.....had to stop to take a picture of this rare SoCal sunset.....↴
....as it turns out the damage is ALL cosmetic. There is no damage to the frame, suspension, or steering gear, so it is just a matter ordering the parts, and installing them. Everything from the right front fender to the rear tail light will have to be replaced, including the roof, and part of the roll cage....this will be an expensive non-mechanical repair.....probably between $3,000 and $8,000 including labor. The customer is only responsible for the first $3,000. Just when we thought we would have all of our units back on line in a few days we now have another on the disabled list for the next couple of weeks.
By the time our full day rental was returned at 4:30 pm it had been a long day. Thankfully, three of the four rentals returned without incident. TLE and I closed the office, and headed home....the wind was still blowing, and the sun had already set, so that was the end of another GNHS day. As I write the Santa Anas have abated, and it looks to be a glorious, windless GNHS day!
Thanks for stopping by!
