He’s mended it I think, just wanted a new bumper and a bit of bodywork.

Easier to get a new car than fix that, it would have eaten every penny of that £500 to get it back to how you had it, no way that beam hadn't take a knock to the bearings given the damage both sides.

Bugger.

I hadn't realised that.

Thanks for the advice, I had better weigh it in straight away then.

I thought that the rear quarter had taken the brunt of the force but what do I know.. .

Knocked it out, painted and fitted the bumper off the blue one. I'll fill and paint it at a later dateIMG_20171012_092606.jpg IMG_20171012_092616.jpg

It good enough for now.

I am fond of this car and I'm intrigued to see just how many miles the engine will do. When the engine fails then the car will have reached the end of its useful life and I will park it up.

Even if it had damaged the rear axle it wouldn't matter, they are practically service items anyway. I think its on its third one now. Two hours work.

Even if I wasn't fond of the car i would have fixed it for the sake of a £20 bumper.

You are everything that the average UK car owner isn't.
Good man. :)

Them yellow cubes from out of a proper old-school urinal are easy to sneak in and a better buzz than any modern chemical shit. Never done me any harm.

Pointless scrapping an otherwise servicable car.

It would be like having the cat put down just because its old and its fur is a bit manky
