Well, I have a crucial decision to make about my valver, BXI 19. TOMORROW MORNING I tell the local workshop to begin the eextensive and costly welding job required to pass the MOT, or it has to be scrapped. Perhaps you have bodyshop facilities and or skill? I have no off road parking so there aint the luxury of thinking about it. There are a few other non-MOT defects, but many positives that produce that distinctive, exhilarating 16V ride. I bet we could agree on a price low enough for you to deal with the welding,and which reflects the value of that number plate while re-assuring me that the car goes to a good home. The MOT expires in April, but I'm abroad from next Sunday. That's why I've brought forward the MOT test (and it is previous long foreign jaunts that have left the car rusting at the roadside).
Sorry about the urgency and extreme short notice. Call/text 07580805727 Regards, Pete
