No chance. :lol: Always maintained the outriggers, and the rest of the chassis. Waxoyld, and painted regularly. Rust happens to any chassis that you don't look after.

Never had ANY serviceability problems with the her (unlike Porsche 911s - Geerman technology!!), and pretty reasonable to look after (except fuel!) OK, the battery drained once, but she's on an overnight conditioner.

...and, she doesn't smell of glue, OR leak. If there's one thing owning a TVR for 5 years has taught me is, NEVER listen to Richard Hammond!
