Flex may be totaled ..
« on: August 12, 2019, 10:21:26 AM »
So, Friday we had a wicked thunderstorm roll through like nothing this town has seen before, and the flex was at work in the parking lot. it is not crazy bad but the roof hood left side are all damaged (looks like a 10 year old with drum sticks was practicing for a concert)

because of the 125k miles the adjuster said it might be a total..

If so ill find a SHO to swap my drive train into.

or if I can swing it and keep it, ill straight gut it and it will really become a sleeper.

since it is white ill have to rename it after a golf ball company!..

I should know by end of week..

and I just put new injectors in it...

I hope the buyback is reasonable and you can turn loss into something positive.
