Forced up a grass verge

Six weeks ago down a single track road I came round a corner only to see a car in the middle of the road stationary. I think he had seen me tried to stop and missed a passing place. Two options, head on crash or up the grass verge. ABS on few lumps and bumps but crash avoided. Stopped at local garage to find squashed bumper and leaking n/s rad.
Both jobs I was going to do over the winter.
Removed bumper and rad same day with plans to do both rads and condensors.
The car is still in this state as later that week I had a burst appendix in hospital for 11 days. As it was a bad one.
Ordered a ctek battery conditioner to keep the battery alive.
Home for 5 days got rushed back to hospital, found pneumonia but more seriously blood clots on both lungs.
Back home now and missing my car. I don'y like it just stood in bits.
Had bumper sprayed and going to order the other bits today hopefully.
Get out of breath walking up the stairs so will have to take it slow repairing the car.
I am only 40 and am glad I am still around to see my next birthday and hopefully my car back on the road soon.
Sorry for the long story.
 
You're not the only one suffering at the moment, so our thoughts are with you.
FWIW, not been able to drive mine for ages, and am beginning to miss it now! :D

Hope you're feeling better soon :)

Just to be clear: its just the battery you're trying to keep alive is it !!!
 
Just got back from docs. I am still alive and kicking( maybe not kicking yet). Told I can do moderate excercise not sure if that covers crawling around on the floor under a Porsche!!
 
Scoobydoo
I have been reading about your troubles. Sort of encouraged me to tell my story. Hope your situation is improving. You should have a well sorted car when you get it back.
It would be nice if we could fix ourselves as easily as our cars.
 
LOL :)

The similarities are scary - both man and machine need specialists to fix ourselves up.

Can't wait to get mine back - already looking forward to mods ;)

That reminds me, might give Hartech a shout :D

ps - great bunch of people in the Porsche community: some of the friendliest people I've been around :)
 
Blimey, go steady out there!!!!!
 
Crickey sunshine, you have been in the wars :eek:
Take it slow and break the jobs down into small manageable ones.
Good luck with you're recovery
:thumb:
 
Yikes. Feel for you jordo (and scooby). Wish you all well for a speedy and complete recovery in all departments.

enjoy life, we each get to go around just once.
 
Leave the car alone.
Don't go lying out on any cold floors.
Sit in front of you tube/ pc/ fora, and eat Choccie one side biscuits, and cups of tea.
No fags.
Light drink of an evening .
Thats one large can of beer.
Keep warm.
Drink plenty of fluids.
Get some exercise, gpo out for a walk once a day, well wrapped up.

Keep away from the car .

Don't ignore warning signs.
