Surely they can be patched without having to replace the whole chassis?

Providing not too far gone, then yes. Iirc the outriggers are the bits that go first and the worst.

Outrigger Kit (includes fitting kit): £1,095

"We cut off the original outrigger section right back at the main chassis beams, we then fit up a new outrigger section bolt it to your body and wishbone pick up points and then fully weld in place. The whole process takes about a week to complete in our workshop"

I suspect that someone running a TVR has a few bob.

They don't look too hard to fabricate with some round section steel after cutting the old ones off to use as a template.

Would anyone else be put off of buying a car if an engine swap was not shown on the V5?

Not sure what the current DVLA rules allow now.

Ideally on the DVLA but I can understand why most won't want the hassle of declaring it to them. They're right shitbags at the moment. Probably require a signed headed letter from a garage to say it was done and paperwork to prove the ID of the engine.
