I'm surprised mine never had an advisory on rust on it's previous MOT as it had it in all the usual places, sills,front and rear chassis legs,rear arches. but hopefully I've halted it a little when I wire brushed it all and treated it with fertan rust killer and primed and painted it. as it never had any advisories for body/chassis rust at the MOT in august and hopefully it should last another year at least provided the local scum can resist chucking house bricks and lumps of concrete at the poor old thing.

Hi James. That sounds like an excellent idea. I suppose I should really tackle the job myself but I do tend to make silly mistakes and having someone who knows what they're doing making sure it all goes to plan is the ideal situation.

Would anyone be willing to do my cambelt kit swap for some beer money or whatever the going rate maybe?.  and I can drive to you provided its not too far away.

Just in case anyone wondered both nearside doors from an estate will fit into an astra hatch.

That's typical driving everywhere you go unfortunately. because every time I go somewhere theres always some arsehole who thinks its fine to pull in front of me with an inch to spare without indicating and then they proceed to do the same to numerous others until they get off at whatever junction they want usually cutting across all lanes to do it..

You're lucky they just let the tyres down  :). around here and a few other streets around Newport someone decided to slash all the tyres on practically every car in the street just before Christmas. and to top it off when I went to get my tyres replaced the moron managed to put the wrong size on and when I went back to complain they replaced those with ones with virtually no tread on them (found out after I got home again  ??? ). and then in January the car was written off by a Frenchman in a rented mokka on the same day that someone was using my credit card to do some shopping..

I'm glad there were no nasty surprises. because if it had needed a lot more doing to it then chances are the poor old thing would be making it's final journey to the scrapyard. but my faith in the car has been restored to a point and now i'll see about getting the aircon working and some other little jobs doing before we have another ice age.

Took mine for it's MOT and it failed on the 3 items I new it would namely the front nearside wishbone (bush) offside rear shock absorber and the bloody airbag light from when I changed the nearside windows after the local chavs smashed them.

I've driven two of them a 2010 130 hatch and a 2012 160 tourer and the first was ok provided you gave it some stick to get anywhere. but the second one seemed like it was thrown together from whatever they had lying around judging by the fit of numerous parts on it. and don't mention DPF'S the thing was forever over revving to burn off the crap and the smell was enough to choke you to death if you stood near it for more than a minute or two.

As my car is up for it's MOT i thought i'd check around the car for anything obviously missing or damaged. and much to my surprise neither of the rear rubber hangers were there. so off to Halfords and i bought two that were apparently for a ford escort and they fit a treat.

MOT history suggests that the owner couldn't be bothered with it.

As you say it depends on the situation. but more often than not ill knock it into neutral as I cant see the point of sitting there with it in drive if I'm not going anywhere.
