on the up side......

....thats actually improved the looks :cheers:

back when they were "Rover Metro's" my dads runaround got ran over by a lorry that jumped a red (and I do mean "ran over"), the front end was litterally squashed flat, the engine was twisted sideways and forced down to the ground.

I thought "thats a gonna for definate"

two weeks later my dad had swapped out its entire front end subframe and rebuilt it from a donar front end, when I asked "why the feck did you even bother?" he answered........... "I was bored and wanted to see if I could", two days later he gave it to my sisters mate.

and I wonder were I inherited my need to feck about with every whim that crosses my mind with slim to no chance of seeing a return? :rolleyes:

any monkey can buy and bolt on.... an individual creates

you have to really ask yourself something when you consider trying to insult me.. do I really seem like the type of person who gives a flying shite covered monkey F*ck about your pointless comment?.. I'll save your deminished intellect the struggle..that'd be a "No"
Anything can be made to fit.... thats what hammers are for silly!
All posts are the view of the writer and not necessarily that of..... actually no, I dont really give a flying flame toasted turd, dont read my posts if you dont like em R-tard.
no one can accuse me of being "two-faced", Ill call you a nob behind your back and to your face... the latter preferably so I can watch you uselessly blow your lid
being directly honest with your opinion may not make you well liked but it will get you appreciated by the worthwhile few with the sense to understand.... Id rather be appreciated for who I am than liked for what I'm not.

IIRC the Metro, later Rover 100 had a very bad score for Euro NCAP when it came out. This then contributed to the demise of the Rover 100.

you would be suprised what you can get in the back for instance 2.4 meters of fence posts and be able to shut the boot,washing machines,the front end of the trailer minus engine (wish i had of kept that now )so yes as good as a van lol

Oh no! Well, a little bit more prep needed now before you drop that engine in! How you end up doing that? (Shawdreamer don't say he didn't stop!). :nutter:
