Hi all! New here, but have been reading up for a few months. :)
Have nearly done the deed and bought my girlfriend an F. Probing around underneath revealed a piece of tape on the front of the chassis rail. I poked my screwcriver... straight through it which revealed a macine cut hole. There's one exactly the same the other side, so was wondering if this is standard or a really convincing rust cut-out.
Sorry this is a long and straight to the point first post, but cruch day is tomorrow!
Thanks in advance all,
Dave.

Thanks Chris. :)

If you look underneath from the front, theres a 3"-ish wide member running front to back each side of the car inboard of the front wheels.

As it comes to the front, it slopes upwards.

Any help mate? Cheers.

Ha ha, no problem. Thanks for replying so promptly though. :)

I must say, of all the forums I regularly visit, this seems to be far and away the friendliest- no oneupmanship, fighting and bickering and everybody seems to be here for the right reason. It's a real pleasant change. Good job all!

Dave.

What did the owner say about your damaging of vital protective tape?
You break, you buy!

For this to work you must also practice the correct sucking air through your teeth whilst saying it.
