That happened almost 2 years ago from my understanding.

Apparently that car was fixed up too.

Unless they did a cut&shut job there is no way that car could have been fixed up.

Yeah, would have been an easy job for Hilliers. They're good at chopping cars up and putting them back together in all sorts of different ways. They would have chopped it at the start of the front doors and replaced it with the front end of a donor car i reckon.

I've seen that pic before - shocking stuff. Looks like an AU II Futura, but even the AU II's reinforced firewall could only do so much. I never realised it actually got fixed up, but either way, there's no substitute for safe driving!

I dont think they would of cut and shut it, cut and shuts are illegal, it would of been easier to put a new firewall, skirts and rails in. One day I hope to have a bussines like hillers.

I thought cut & shuts were legal provided they were done by somebody who is qualified. I know a few years ago there was a whole debacle about dodgy cut & shut jobs but they were being done by Dodgy Bros & Co.
