Anyone know the laws on cut and shuts in SA, could a large front cut from the UK, Japan or any RHD country be used to repair this car?

Will be ultra interesting to see what happens to it. 

Was this originally the black G7 car?

considering that it would only be worth maybe $100k by the time it was fixed, why would you even bother????

Could go into Geek-speak and describe oxidisation etc causing discolouration..........   :scratchchin:

You could , and be wrong!

Facts : Bilirubin , a blood breakdown product,  is formed in the body.
It is yellow (responsible for the colour of jaundice and bruises) and when broken down further -  the yellow colour of urine.
When oxidised it turns back to biliverdin , which is green (verde...)

That is not to say the stains on the leather are not some form of altered blood , but that is not a forensic conclusion , just a lay observation.

IMO the car would be best hung in Dave Walsh's Mona Foma in Hobart, next to the wall of poontangs and the guy giving a dog a piggyback.  Tassy will stoop to anything to get a few tourist $, believe me!

err - wasn't me who suggested bilirubin!   ;)

It's the haem component in haemoglobin, and in particular its ferrous content which changes colour when oxidized! Just have a look a the colour of fresh blood which is bright red cf. old blood which is brownish vs. blood altered in the gastrointestinal tract (esp. acid from upper GI bleeds) which is dark/almost tarrish!

Forgiveness is easier to achieve than permission!

Depends what it sells for and what profit they can make.
A lot of the back yarders here do these jobs for cash profits behind big fences.
They might have a front end priced and a buyer lined up before they bid.

ok, but considering it sells for ~$25k (low estimate), and a suitable front end is worth maybe ~$15k... you're already $40k deep in the two halves (and this could be doubled with a high estimate)

now you've got to do all the work to band aid it all together.... it'd take a good panel shop at least 500 man hours (at lets say $80/hr) to do from start to finish, (and most panel shops can easily make double that from all the smash work and corruption and bullshit that generates) and then there'd be another $10-20k in parts and miscellaneous shit....

I can't see anyone doing it for less than $100k owing.....

and it'd still be a dubious history cut'n'shut pile of crap.... worth maybe $100k by the end of 2012 which is when it might be ready!

So, why would anyone bother?


That said, there are idiots out there that constantly surprise me.

A BUSINESSMAN charged with defrauding $1 million says he is being made the scapegoat for the debts and failings of his partner.

Sivakulendran Selvakulalingam, 41, faced the Adelaide Magistrates Court late today.

He has yet to plead to 41 counts of dishonest dealing with documents and 17 counts of theft.

Prosecutors have alleged that, between June 2011 and November 2012, Selvakulalingam stole the identity of businessman John Clyde Bryant.

They claim Selvakulalingam used Mr Bryant's name and personal details to sign leases for a vehicles including a Ferrari, a Porsche, a Dodge, two Land Rovers, two Range Rovers and an Augusta F4.

They further allege Selvakulalingam bought services including Advanced Hair for Men, Qantas flights and sporting goods with cheques upon which he had forged Mr Bryant's signature.

Steve Georgiadis, for Selvakulalingam, asked his client be released on bail.

He claimed his client had started a business with Mr Bryant, not knowing he had a large debt to the Australian Taxation Office.

"What we are seeing here is the pointing of the finger at my client to get away with all the debts he (Mr Bryant) has," he said.

"My client has been, in these circumstances, used by someone who was a father figure to him."

Magistrate Sue O'Connor refused bail, saying the allegations were too serious.

She remanded Selvakulalingam in custody until April.
