Of course if the stuff still sat there underwater now then things like the controller etc are going to be pretty trollied by now
We don't actually know if there are any 'electronics' in this Enfield, but electronics often survive submersion quite well. The trick is to not let them dry out before you're ready.
A friend used to race radio control boats, sometimes off shore and despite best efforts radio gear would get submerged in salt water. He used to carry a bucket of de-ionised water and just dump the contaminated gear into the bucket until he got home. Once at home the gear would be opened up, blown down with compressed air and put into the airing cupboard.
Remember you do not HAVE TO accept an insurance company's offer or where they want take it for repair it's your car you choose.
Yes, that's very important advice. Don't let them take the car (if they want to) until you're happy with what's on offer. Take lots of pictures. If you have legal cover, then you can call in your own loss adjuster to act on your behalf.
Lighten up Paul, anyhow I recon paying the fees we do and then having all the hassle we have trying to claim on our so called insurance is a theft of my money anyway not to mention fraud in my book
Nice speech, think it would work in court?
Seriously, it can be a very uneven battle with insurance companies and they take a very dim view of people trying it on.
When they pay out fair money for a fair failure in a reasonable time will be the time I will start treating them fair.
Actually with a modern car and an easily determined value it can be fast an easy. It's these cases of an old vehicle, or a modified vehicle, etc. that cause the headaches.
