Project MV6 - MOT result (Mr Rog's old car)
« on: 10 October 2016, 13:48:48 »

Having fixed the misfire issue on Saturday (water in the plug wells from windscreen seal) I drove the 210 miles home, and spent a bit of time checking her over for the MOT, which I had already pre booked for today.

A quick check over on Sunday up on a ramp and all looked good to me. The only job done was a handbrake adjustment.

Passed the MOT today without a single advisory :y :y - now has a ticket until 20 October 2017  8)

The old girl is now at my local valeting place, for a full wash/wax/polish inside out treatment.

They always do a super job, so this will allow me to see what potential the bodywork has, and exactly what is needed, paint wise. I know she's a bit rough around the edges and won't come up like a mint example, but I'm hopeful they will be able to make her look nice and presentable :y

When I say paint work - I am referring mainly to the NSF door and rear bumper - it would probably be cheaper to replace the parts from a tidy breaker, rather than pay for respraying :y

Sounds like a plan, problem these days getting a couple of panels painted and washed in down the side can easily become more expensive than the Cars worth.

Also as you can See, Rog, I have re fitted all of the trim in the luggage area:

Keep it up, It's nice to see them being saved rather than being scrapped or drifting away in Ireland to destruction.  :y
