I usually reserve the crying to after I've bought the car. Smiley

They would melt.... of course.
In the past, when I was poor, I would use metal coat hangers to secure Exhausts on cars.

Re: IF You Buy a car ,,, cry!!! to the salesman

I once bought an A60 van for £75 so I expected some problems:

  • No radiator thermostat - to prevent water boiling; thus hiding cracks in cylinder head

  • Good rubber floor mats - hiding rust holes in passenger side floor wells

  • Fractured metal fuel pipe -  temporary bodge repair with rubber hose (like bunsen burner tube) which rotted within 3 weeks


It cost me £35 to have a secondhand cylinder head planed, a new head gasket, some fibreglass for the footwell, £5 for a couple of jubilee clips and a foot of proper petrol hose. 
The van lasted for another 3 years.  Maybe I should have cried to bring the price down to £50.
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Re: IF You Buy a car ,,, cry!!! to the salesman

A Megané I bought didn't seem to be getting up to temperature so I bought a new thermostat.
When I removed the old one all I found was the outer ring of the stat, the rest had been cut away so in effect it didn't have one.
I've no idea why anyone would do that as without the entire thermostat the aluminium housing would still seal on the gasket. Undecided
