    Not the worst

    Depends on the original damage and how well (apart from cosmetic) the repair is.

    Is the damage recorded?

    Merc auto gearbox would put me off - seems good value if not recorded and repaired properly

    What a shame. If he had been prepared to spend a bit and gone to Peter Hambilton it would have looked just the same as when it left the factory.
    Obviously, as a fellow B630 owner, I can only suggest that this is not one to rush for. It's quite a rare one too as it is on the 416 chassis and has a payload of over one tonne. Most were on 313/316 chassis with an effective payload of about 500 kg (after all the optional extras - awning, satellite, steadies, solar panel - water, fuel and two people are accounted for).

    Looks like a good buy.
    Some finishing off and mouldings ect and it would look as good as new.

    Jeeeeeezzzzz what a mess.. :Doh:

    no wonder he's flogging it cheap .. only way to get that right is to have it re-done by a professional coach builder

    his bodge DIY has cost him at least £5k :RollEyes:
