V6 Spider has become a project

Postby allandwf » Sun Nov 22, 2015 8:15 pm

My V6 Spider has unfortunately become a project. It look a glancing blow to the front nearside which has pushed both front chassis members, and radiator packs, around 2 inches to the right, and also pushed in the nearside member. Wheels however are all in the correct place, and the radiators are all intact, which is a bonus. Off to discuss with chassis straightening firm tomorrow.

Should keep me busy for a while.

No, no one hurt. Bit of a battle with Insurance Co. re value, but came good in the end.

That's no good. Glad all are ok though.

Could you do something unique with it rather than back to std?

I want to keep it standard, it was standard before, and they are getting thin on the ground. I have the 3.0 GTV still, that may become, rather, more than standard. ;)

Ah cool :)

Looking forward to seeing how you get on realigning it all.

Some of the coupe parts transferable?

Yes, all the under bonnet bits and bobs are, so the coupe may become a donor for a while.
