Before and After

Land Rovers are marvelous beasts. For one thing, they're like giant Mecano sets - you can take them apart and put them back together again a different way, and they're still Land Rovers. Just about every bit bolts off and can be replaced. Which is often a very good thing...

Fortunately he didn't suffer similar damage. In fact, Land Rovers are tough - and they protect those who drive them too. It's one of the reasons I'm happy to drive such a huge hunk of heavy metal.

Anyway - being a Land Rover, you don't just discard it (that would hurt its feelings!) - instead you fix it. His truck went through quite the process:

But she did come out looking beautiful on the other side.

Good as new again.
