    Default Scrap Yards.

    Amazing how they have developed over the years.
    Went to "U Pull" at Inverkeithing in Fife today. The whole Yard is concrete, all the cars are spaced out sensibly with room to open the doors fully and to be able to work around them, no cars piled on top of each other, I had to sign in and sign out, you have to wear a Hi Vis Vest and they even supply a wheel barrow for lugging heavy or bulky items around!!!!!!!! Ive never seen anything like it.
    BTW ive figured out what Fifes most popular car is, vauxhall corsa, they have hundreds of the things.

    They only had a blue preface LS and facelift SRi in. Sri had met with a hard front end shunt but still had cdc40 and screen in in. What were you looking for in particular?

    If your feeling brave you could just open yours up, with the aid of a hair dryer, and paint the inside, then reseal with black silicone.
