Brilliant... late in for lunch I fired up an off-brand pot noodle and while carrying it to the lounge successfully spilled it all over myself, burned the piss out of my hand, soaked my phone with the juice, soaked a load of expense receipts I was also carrying and it hit the hall floor and just fucking exploded....it was literally dripping from the ceiling in my newly decorated hallway. The obvious and considered reaction was to throw an immediate, massive paddy and boot the fucker down the hall while screaming, which has made the whole scenario about 18 times worse.

These tractors were not the best when new and it doesn't bear thinking about what the steering is like with the weight of that contraption above the scrawny front axle. Best of all, it appears that the seller doesn't feel that being totally buggerated detract from this having the makings of a good restoration project.

s-l1600.jpg

 

I bought this a few years ago and havent touched it.
 
Hopefully someone will take it on and restore it as its really not that bad.
 
The mini is fairly good structually and wants just small repairs to the front floors. It also wants sills, rear quater lower repairs, boot floor and valence repairs and the front end. There will be other localised repair needed. 
 
I cannot find the v5 so you will need to apply for another.

I will have a little bid on this as that 6 cylinder lump would look good in the hearse. I doubt there is much else there worth keeping though but flogging off the trim might get most of the money back.

If so, its even more fucked than Pete thought. Pity. 

 

Having said that, Swampy, his 2000 GXL saloon, was in a similar state, but he restored it to better than new condition :)
