Default That South London engine rebuild place...

There was a thread on here recently... cant be sacked to find it.

Anyway, they've just been on Channel 5 news with a number of scoobs in the background - raided by Police today. Lets hope this is the start of the victims getting some money back.

Cant believe they got away with it for so long! I dont think they would get away with doing something like that up north though especially here in Hull, they would get lynched!!

I knew them as The Heathrow Engine and Gearbox Centre in the 1970's!! They took the whole back page of the Exchange and Mart in those days.

They were crooks then, are crooks now and will remain crooks until they die .... it simply staggers me that people still go there - 40 years on!

It's the usual reason, they appear to be cheap!

These crooks are near where I work at the weekends........you would not believe the amount of cars they have parked awaiting new engines......

Luckily for my boss they pay the rent on time now, apparently my bosses have threatened to kick them out a few times when they were late paying but thay have coughed up in the end, (he's good can fight fire with fire if you know what i mean)...

I just enjoy roaring past them on my way to work in my scoob as all the mechanics look up to see what car making all they noise...

Unfortunatley,this is why these crooks can still make business,as they can still rent lockups etc,even tho most owners know what they get upto,as long as they pay their bills,nothing happens.

in an ideal world your boss would of chucked them out as they were crooks but hey.

.......As you said they don't give a toss as long as the rents paid......there no better to work for.....

Glad to see this happen these people are crooks and take advantage of people then leave them with a ruined car and no cash.

The people that work there are not mechanics you'd struggle to call them fitters, some of the work I've seen come out of there could have been done better by an untrained monkey.
