    Insurance Data Base Important!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi all, I am with Footman James, we have our cab insured as a classic for a minimum of £10,000 for a fixed premium of £430 December last year someone kindly Hit the rear quarter of our Cab. With in two days an insurance assessor inspected the vehicle and said it could not be repaired as parts were not available. We wanted the car and agreed a buy back price and with in 5 days they paid the balance of £10,000 into our bank. Thanks to two club members they found me a car being broken for spares, we cut off the complete rear quarter. my local body repairer (A and true craftsman's ) spent the last five months repairing the car. The car is like new again and Footman James have re-insured the car for £10,000. why go else where? When I sort out my PC I will post the history of the rebuild. Keith

    If it helps, I had a problem with my MK5, kept stalling and stopping. There was a carbon build up in the inlet manifold that blocked part of the butterfly. The problems was due to a leaking value, ended up in a complete engine rebuild? Keith
