As per title. Absolutely gutted and more so very annoyed at the previous MOT centre which Ive been using for years for not failing or giving advisories on some of things listed earlier!

Have hardly driven this over the last few years and have just spent about 600 on welding to the front inner arch, d/s corner sill, new discs and pads all round based on the advisories on an earlier MOT this year in June only to be told today that it has failed on a lot more than previously listed (new MOT centre)


Minors (easy fixes)
Now needs new tyres all round as all are cracked along edges from standing (toyo proxies t1rs)
New front brake hoses
Horn suddenly stopped working on day of MOT
Fog Lamp Bulb
Exhaust has a minor leak

Majors:
Both rear brake backing plates badly corroded.
Floorpan. Cleaned and treated this when I first bought the car 7 years ago but never stayed on top it due to my back injury.
Had the chassis steam cleaned and Dinitrol'd and yet still no-one at the garage even mentioned the severity of the corrosion mentioned in the places below.

Needs welding to rear n/s subframe mount (will get pics when I can)
Sills both could do with being stripped and welded together with a couple of bits around the drainage holes
There has been some fibreglass repair done to 2-3 of the drainage holes which was done by the previous owner.
Basically the whole floorpan could do with being stipped, welded where needed and re-treated.

Overall Condition / Service History:

- 3 Previous Owners with me being the second (the first owners were husband & wife)
- Mileage is approx 110k
- Belts are due a change
- Full detailed folder of receipts and service history
- Usual Rosso Red which could do with a strip and respray (laquer peel, smart repairs/spray can repairs done by previous owner)
The car polished up well but ideally needs a total body respray as there are some small dinks and key marks
- The car drives and runs perfectly, still pulls through all the gears with no nasty leaks sounds from the engine
- Ragazzon full stainless from the cat back with 2 silencers
- Polybushed drop links
- Clean Cloth interior - Driver's seat bolster has a tear about 5cm along the edge
- Wheels are v.good condition and straight, no cracks.

Overall this car would be suited to someone on here who can weld and has the time to put in to it.

Car is in Shropshire, Bridgnorth, can be viewed and test driven. Will need a trailering.

Price is based on what I've already been offered by the garage who fixed it of 400
Will post pics up asap

** NOW SOLD **

Gone to a new forum member so no doubt and happy to say it'll be making an appearance again.
Happy it went to an enthusiast who plans on restoring it too.


Still very gutted however

Lol ... yeah something like that!

Will be on the hunt for another next year as will have a driveway & garage to take on a project.

Was very sad seeing it go and will miss the fun I had driving it.

One of life's simple pleasures for me it was.
