    My Repair Thread =)

    As above, now started the repair of my car =)

    this weekend took bonnet, slam panel, cross member and radiator's off, with some help =)

    here's how the car looks now =(



    as you can see the crumple zone has gone =(

    so we are removing it, and getting another one, and securely welding it on, inside the crumple zone and on the out side, and then dressing it off and painting it.



    taking the end bit off to make it easier to grab and pull the chassis a little bit out, only moved a slight bit.



    And thats were we stand at the moment, hopefully more tomorrow =)

    I hope everything works out for you matey!

    I will have to come see it once I've got my car sorted, a mate is gonna be doing all my exhaust work for £150, saving shed loads off what a garage would charge.

    Now I'm just tempted to get a lexmaul sports manicat
