Re: Fix or Scrap

2004..not so bad.
Older cars they say as long as the bodywork is ok..

Am I blind! no I can see the bonnet is fooked and that doesnt give a good indication for the rest of it..

Check the rest of the structure .. sills,wheelarches, mounting points etc.If a screwdriver goes thru ,anywhere chances are the rest of the body is as rotten as the bonnet..

No point in fixing it to run properly if its going to be you and the upper body sailing down the road with you holding holding the steering wheel and the rest of the car being left behind.
I wouldnt even blast round a track if the structure isnt sound..
If it is sound aside from the bonnet..then you might have options.

Seems these guys are still going! "A load more bullocks " released in 2010
