Saw this when changing a wheel. I'm sure we have all been guilty at some time or other of bending the rules of sensible nut and bolt selection, but these, with their lock nuts, made me lol! If someone here recognises their handiwork, thanks for the fun!

That is tame compared to some of the gems I have seen as "repairs". How about the complete front corner of the chassis being crafted entirely from polyester filler? I didn't believe my eyes at first.

Yes, we can mend your Scimitar!
Order your Scimitar parts any hour of the day at (member's discounts).

Fancy a holiday in Gael, France?

There is no point trying to teach a pig to sing. It doesn't work and it annoys the pig.

Sometimes you just have to use the bits you have to hand - although I would have cut the bolts down with a angle grinder afterwards.
