Reliant. Middlebridge bought them in and reworked them to their standard. Sadly they kept the nasty primer filler that causes the microblistering!

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

Assembled, certainly.

"Made" depends on the definition - as MB owned the rights, then one assumes they effectively sub-contracted bodyshell manufacture out. They just happened to sub-contract it "back" to Reliant.

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

It was the "hand built at the middlebridge factory " on the mess website that that was a bit confusing.
