@johnny crossan Yes, he mentioned in part 3 that he had to skip a week on the Evoque build :)
It will be interesting to see how it turns out...

I'm getting uneasy about this repair - hard to believe so many pieced together panels are as strong as the original pressed sheet metal.

Same here. Not one I would like to buy!

Never really seen what goes into fixing a Cat S write off. Interesting stuff. I wonder if he'll investigate possible damage to the steering rack, especially knowing the failure issues around them.

Probably will when he finds its scrubbing one tyre or the steering wheel isn't straight

It’s great to see they are trying so hard to fix the Evoque and bring it back to life.
It is a worry to see how cutting and welding is required. Will it ever be as good as new ?

Moral of this story is, if the doors don’t fit, leave well alone !! (Oh and a full unadulterated history of the car you are buying).

The owner is taking a bit of flak in the comments. Some people saying it shouldn't be put back on the road.
He's saying it's staying in the family and not being sold.

Interestingly someone commented saying if someone painstakingly patched up an old rusty classic they might be seen as having done a good job, but cut in metal on a newer car and you're a cut and shut merchant!
