Looks like one of Richard Hammonds bodge jobs from top gear to get him going so he doesn't have to drive the Marina following behind. :lol:

Ah no! I almost forgot this! The hub fell off towing it home. I checked all the wheel nuts but didnt realise there where wheel adpators under them... with just 3 threads holding them on. The brake find was a bonus.

Think that's taking low profile to the max!

You have heard of the South London look, this is this South Sydney look.

My generator light kept flickering (105e Anglia), the alternator was quite new so I thought I'd better investigate the wiring where the regulator had been removed.  Found them loosely twisted round each other with a small amount of black tape.  Glad I found it before it set fire to my car.

Do you think whoever did it said to themselves - I have a MIG and no idea how to use it, how to prepare metal and what the finished article is supposed to look like so I best put a box over my head and do it by touch (by my guide dog!)

Please just learn to weld!

When removing a fuel tank from a previous car I noticed something wasn't right in the filler neck. 

The rubber had perished so some knuckle head jammed a short piece of plastic pipe in the hole and screwed it to the body adaptor........ genius 

Ps just spent about 20 mins looking for this photo :D

You been sneaking a look at my new loom - cheeky bugger LOL! Seriously though, just seeing all those blue / yellow crimp connectors set off the warning bells regardless!

Don’t worry yourself Rich, it’s just in keeping with the rest of the car😜
