Re: biggest botch job

Bodges i've seen on cars by a dodgy car dealer i know...

1. Mole grips on rear brake line to stop leak.
2. Alternator held on by 6 inch nail cos he lost the main bolt.
3. Polish customer complained the car he sold him was a little noisy in the engine department so he put 3 litres of gear oil in it! The Pole commented on how lovely and thick the oil was!
4. A MK1 Fiesta sold to a woman who wanted power steering (it didn't have it of course). He put 65 ft/lbs of pressure in the front tyres!
5. Merc with 10 wheel studs missing (5 stud pattern), he put a 6 set of wheel trims on it.
