Default Re: I aquired another VW

Drove it about a mile last nite to get some screws to mount the other side, it was bouncing around a bit on the outer edge, I made sure I took all the bumpy streets to the hardware store, nothing happened, the tire didn't hit the fender

This morning I had to go give monthly labs, it's a 4 mile trip to and from, so I'm headed home and all of a sudden, BAMM I hit a BIG pothole and the back of the fender hit the tire then went straight up and over the tire then pushed it over to the headlight

I got out and wiggled it back n forth till it broke off and threw it in the back then drove home

Gonna go make a few braces and gussets to make it a bit stiffer
Gotta do something different

And I know exactly where to test it out next time
