    Just uploaded an album of pictures of this name (after finally working out how to) in case anyone is interested in how the "modifications" looked :Smile:

    Kids today !

    When I were a lad we'd have fixed it with a bit of duct tap and T-Cut.

    It's kids like him making frivolous claims that push our insurance up !

    I didn’t think the back looked to bad on the offside, then I saw the photo of the wheel – less the tyre. That must have taken some force to move the van & knock the tyre off. :Eeek:
    Front looked a proper job from the start.
    Glad you are sorted.:thumb:

    It didn't show up so well on the photos but there is a vertical crease up the whole of each of the offside and rear panels so all would need replacing, quite apart from the damaged wood framing :Smile: The toilet/shower is in that offside rear corner and apparently that would all need taking out and renewing as well. And that was only the start :Smile:

    Keep an eye out for it on E bay as a damaged repairable, or even repaired.

    youd never have been happy with it back fixed.

    Best of luck with your replacement.:thumb:

    I just answered a question about the LEZ on another forum and tried putting the registration number of our bent Autoquest into the compliance checker - and it came up compliant :Eek!:

    Even more surprising, I put the Reg No into Askmid and it came up as currently insured :Eeek:

    Steve and Soggie were right then. I never thought it would go back onto the road after all the damage. I hope nobody has been sold a pup.
