Right, so you've all seen pics of my beauty - but what they tend not to highlight, is the massive amount of dents on the ******* thing!

Upon looking today, i'm sure there has been a midget with a cloth covered hammer battering my door!

Not sure if they can all be popped out, so a new passenger door may be on the cards (likely anyway as there is damage around the handle thanks to a break-in with a previous owner).

Dents in roof need to be rectified, along with the early signs of corroding arches and the fact that the back end is bent...lmao

So basically - it's going to be ripped apart, straightened out and sprayed up in the standard poverty blue, just to keep it sleeperish :D

Am I just being daft, is it worth throwing cash at a 'runaround' I bought for £300?

Yes.

Mine's the same.. A mate thought it'd be great to reverse into my side (one minor unnoticeable dent in door)
And aftr my crash, front n/s corner is still not perfect :evil: bit of rust on the wing too. Slam panel is not all straight, and need new grill. Oh well.
