Oh good, I was just about to ask someone. I don't know the rider so getting info isn't easy.

So he's out of the coma? What's the outlook like?

A very good friend of mine sustained mixed first to third degree burns to 90% of his body about a decade ago. The worst of the burns to his lower body his junk was good and his face due to quick action jumping into the water, the rest crispy (he was on his boat at a fuel dock ). It was a terribly long recovery for him I wouldnt wish such injures on anyone. My heart goes out to the guy and his family/friends.

My brother received 2nd and 3rd degree burns to about 70% of his body after he thought it would be a good idea to throw a can of WD40 into a campfire.



He had a hella long recovery and it was painful seeing him in such a state. I, too, wouldn't wish it on anyone.

After all's done, this whole thing probably cost me $1500-2000.
What was the cause for the extra expense? And ever find out why ICBC held out so long before they approved the claim?

Basically I got enough to pay for the car and APR tune. The previous owner fucked up the wheels...like severe scratching so they discounted me the amount of the wheels. I already agreed to buy new ones so I'll need new rubber too.

I bought an intake the first time off Craigslist so that isn't covered, nor are my LED taillights. Bought new ones...about $350 for the tails and $400 for the intake.

And I'll probably get the car detailed soon. There's a paint chip on the trunk so I was hoping to get that done first.

After everything, to get a car somewhat similar to what I had before, it'll cost me roughly $2k.

Oh and the delay was a combination of ICBC, RCMP and lawyers for everyone being incompetent.
