Notice. New forum software under development. It's going to miss a few functions and look a bit ugly for a while, but I'm working on it full time now as the old forum was too unstable. Couple days, all good. If you notice any issues, please contact me.

Glad to hear that you made it home fine, and that the repairs are ongoing.
Take care on the roads, they are dangerous places.
Cheers
Pete

This is what the right hand mud guard looked like. It was flung about 50m down the road.



Update.
There were a few other minor damages from other things. Once the ladder fell over on it. The hole that was used for the 3rd seat belt, now cover over properly. I got a hole in the back tyre and it fell off the jack.

Body repainted all over a few weeks ago.

It is looking good, Trev. Did you manage to get the truck drivers details to get some insurance money for the repairs?

No Pete, never got truck number plate. 110km/hr freeway. Too far away by the time I realised what happened. I was squatting at the left side of rear wheel when the truck hit.

I found what the problem was. It had popped all the heads off the bolts on the inside cover. I replaced the motor last week and it sounded the same, but all the outside bolts had come loose. I  put the dial indicator on it and found 1.5mm out of true. So disassembled the motor and machined the magnet ring. It seems fixed now.

Drove T-Rev to town (Mackay) to check if public charging was al ok. It is.

Planning another trip to Sydney. More details of this new trip will be posted later.

Picture won't upload from my phone. I will try when I get home.
