    Drove through a few floods to get home - all seemed OK till I got home

    My L/H sill cover was ripped off and I have lost it :mad:

    Vauxhall charge about £60 and it needs painting

    I really hope I can find it tomorrow :rolleyes:

    What a pain in the backside. :( I almost lost one of the valve caps inside the wheel when I was putting some air in the tyres afternoon (not necessarily in that order!) but it's not quite the same. Hopefully you'll find it tomorrow. :)

    I either lost it about 1/4 mile East of Shell Ford, at Shell Ford, or at Himbleton so I reckon if I don't find it after 5 minutes it is phone the scrappies!

    It has been ripped of by floods before but I had screwed it to the wheel arch liner.

    Back in my claims days had a policyholder call who had taken his posser 4x4 to a remote island in scotland, driven through what he thought was a puddle and ended with water lapping at the windshield.

    Car was absolutally dead due to all the electronics - a farmer put it in the barn used for drying hay but no effect. Policyholder wasnt very reasonable as he wanted his courtesy car that day when he knew the ferry from the mainland only left twice a week and wasnt due for another few days.
