Thought I had posted these before.
Have a link that hopefully works.

I bought it from a guy in Dunfermline who was going to put the running gear in his Locos kit car.
It is an insurance right of but repairable (Cat C) and has a V.I.C against it and requires a V.O.S.A identity check.
I have called her Molly-Gail partly because I have an MG metro steering wheel with the MG logo and also after my wife.
Hope you enjoy :)

It must have been quite a whack to have bent the bottom suspension arm like that:

:shock:

Or is it just the camera angle giving it the impression of being bent?

I had similar with my Traveller, but managed to resurrect it.

Think its camera angle as damage was to o/s inner wing and front panel.
Engine was pushed back against bulkhead and I thought it was ceased as it would not turn but when I took it out it was fine.
I chucked it as I have a 1275 to go in. :)

Got some welding of drivers side scuttle panel done, when I cut of part of inner wing it looked like a sieve.
Will get some pictures up at some point.
Welding is a bit rough but once smoothed down should be ok, it won't be seen anyway. :lol:

Hi Cliff
Details of costs and VOSA VIC sites are available on the DVLA website.
At the minute its £41 for a normal appointment or £50 for out of hours.
The test takes about 20 minutes, all they check is the cars identity they do not M.O.T it.
I have a form VIC1 that lists the VOSA sites on the back.
Here are pictures as promised.
Enjoy. :)
