50 shades of red post mot

Post by rutter123 » Sat May 04, 2013 7:19 pm

MOT passed, not looking too shabby, can you polish a turd? you can but try... £5 fog lamps from ebay, not perfect but just fit inside the original holes without any cutting, few pending jobs to do thru summer, rear bumper strip off being painted at mo nice to be back in the t/d, the poorly tgd next door.

The pics do it some justice, it really is showing its age and surprised it aint leaning to the n/s with the amount of steel its had, but on the upside, 2 pipe seals, 3 little patches welded, remove towbar,and swap the rear tyres round for the mot, could have been a lot worse.
