This is brilliant, genuinely one of the best red Minis out there.

Jack was sat waiting to turn right into a side street

He was hit at about 35mph from the rear corner then shoved into an oncoming car doing 30mph

 

 

Insurance is now all sorted

Picking up a new shell tomorrow, so the rebuild starts all over again

 

This is what she looks like now

Everything is stripped

Jack has a nice bit of wall art tho

It doesn't look that bent.

 

Could it not have been repaired easily enough?

Hi Ben

 

No she doesn't look that bad

But its when you get close & now everything is out of her you can see what is bent

Bulkhead, floor, boot floor, rear quarter, inner wheel arch, seat back, inner wing

The gap between the passenger door has been squished too

The list goes on

 

 

Tuesday 28th July we went to collect the new shell.

The new shell is home

So the "Ruby Two" build will start soon

There is a fair bit of work to do on the new shell before it goes anywhere near the body shop

Is the shell new or refurbished? 

 

Looks pretty good
