The alarm fails to go off, so you sleep in; you spill coffee down yourself and have to change, and then... you have an accident on the way to work. One of our customers had a day like that not too long ago, and to make matters worse, he was shunted from behind into another car. Both cars ended up in our panelbeating shop for repair. One was a Holden (right), the other a Toyota (below). The process of ordering parts has changed a lot over the past few years, but perhaps not for the better. Parts are now ordered online and can take up to three days to arrive. When they arrive they can be damaged or incorrect, further delaying the repair time. Some insurance companies insist on using this pro- cess. In days gone by, we would source the parts ourselves and would have the parts delivered to us on the same day. Now, it's amazing how long it can take for parts to arrive, depending on the type of vehicle you own. In our recent two-car accident case, parts for the Toyota had to be ordered from Japan, with a wait time of three weeks, whereas the Holden had only a two- day delay even though parts had to come from Aus- tralia. The driver of the Holden was back in his car within a week, the Toyota driver, one month. PAKURANGA PANELBEATERS has been in business for more than 40 years, providing great panel- beating and painting services for the local and wider com- munity. The team makes very effort to repair vehicles quickly and efficiently while maintaining the highest level of workmanship and, most importantly, all work is GUAR- ANTEED.

Phone 577 5599 TWO of the world’s best musical tribute acts are stopping in East Auckland as part of nationwide tours. The Abba Re-Bjorn and Ultimate Bee Gees international stage shows are coming to the Howick Club on September 19. “These two shows are usually performed individually,” says the club’s head of entertainment, Rita Bell. “The concert promoter has com- bined them to produce a three- hour show worthy of performing in any major theatre. “We’re really excited we’ve been chosen as one of the New Zealand venues for this nationwide tour.” The Howick Club has secured a special licence to host the concert, so tickets are available to the gen- eral public, not just club members. The Abba Re-Bjorn stage produc- tion has played to sold-out shows in North America, South Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Since joining forces with Ulti- mate Bee Gees, they’ve performed more than 2000 shows around the world. Among the songs made famous by Swedish pop super group Abba are Dancing Queen, Fernando, SOS and Mamma Mia. The Bee Gees are known for smash hits such as To Love Some- body, Night Fever, How Deep Is Your Love and Jive Talkin’, among many others. The Abba Re-Bjorn and Ultimate Bee Gees stage shows perform at 8pm on September 19 at the How- ick Club, 107 Botany Road. Tickets cost $49. To book, phone 537-7103, or visit the club.

Owairoa Primary School, in Howick, is gearing up for two nights of drama, music and fun as it stages Cinderella – The Whole Story, on Wednesday and Thursday nights. Drama teacher Andrew Barrett says it’s the tale of Cinderella, “as it should have been told”. A pantomime, the production gives the young actors the chance to really ham it up. “They’re very theatrical, talented and have worked very hard from the frst rehearsal,” he says. “We’ve got a great team behind the scenes controlling the music, sound, lights and more.” Star of the show is Anna Twyman, who plays Cinderella. She’s delighted with the show and the opportunity it has given her. “I’m a dancer and have never done drama before, so this is great. “It’s been great to get to know other students as well,” she says. Tickets are $3 and available from the school offce or at the door. Will she make the ball?
