    I’ve been through small claims to get money back on a bad spray job I had done on a vespa I restored.

    The threat of court got money out of the guy but it was stressful and dragged on. Could easily have cost more than I would have gained.

    You need to do letters etc to the people responsible, failing all that you have to go to mediation to try get it resolved that way, even so I couldn’t find a mediator for civil disputes and even if i did it would be costly to use them. Failing that you then go to court.

    I was lucky that the guy folded and it didn’t cost any more than a few recorded letters.

    For the sake of a dent in a door I would just put a sticker over it. I only carried on with mine as the sprayer ruined a huge amount of time and effort on a restoration I was aiming to make concourse and I paid £800 for his super shoddy work. I wouldn’t bother if it was significantly less tbh.

    Otherwise call citizens advice for some ideas, they were actually pretty good.

    Ive got a vespa for sale if anyone’s interested...

    nice work, lots to check out thanks for posting.

    I've loved this album for a long time, played it a lot whilst starting the working from home covid thing. reminds me of the Racoons tv show from when I were a nipper for some reason.

    Great to see how popular Hastings area is becoming. It used to be a total dive for ages and no one would touch it.

    I met a bloke who bought an old pub and upstairs living quarters. Basically a massive building in St Leonard’s about 15 years ago for £100k. Made the pub part his studio and upstairs in to a really nice house. Literally, the dream

    you can still get flats in Hastings for £60k (last year you could at least) I looked at one in St Leonards but the service charge was £8k a year. in that big building that looks like a cruise ship, its having lots of work done as the past freeholder neglected it. if you can see the work out and hold your nerve for a few years you could still get a cheap place down there.

    That’s awesome, nice choice. My office chair is the same as that just with a higher back. Used nearly everyday for work. They’re just so much better than a copy, hope you enjoy it.
