The bad news is that it's going to take 4 days! Ugh!
I'm booked to take Jeff in Tuesday next week. The repairer (Apex Smash Repairs) are sending me an information pack which should answer all the questions I have (according to them). Hopefully it will answer the question of how I'm going to survive without a car for three and a bit days (drop off Tuesday, pick up Friday).
Oh well, them's the breaks.
