    Hmmmmm...... So they have a cost-base that allows them to repair damaged Rangie's that others won't touch because it is not cost-effective to do so.
    Given the level of effort and skill required to do this, is it really so bad?
    As long as the "written-off" category is not hidden and is declared as a correct category for insurance purposes I don't see a big problem myself.

    The repair is not really the problem, the joints in the chassis are,to say the least rough . there was no preparation to the joints,the top was unweldable and as far as I could see, there was no inspection to any of the work. so what are you buying? a well painted death trap !!!!
