Well - my car Passed! congratulations minibus, by the skin of your bleedin teeth!
So, the list that I scribbled down of advisories that probably wont do very well...
I may jotted these incorrectly...
Dust Cover for (shocks?) Nearside Front - Think she said about £120 - ebay about £20 (if I was looking at the right thing)
Nearside Track Rod End - Probably about the same from Ford, Ebay says about £20)
Offside Front Tyre Rod Boot is Split - cant find on ebay so probably typed it wrong)
Rear disks have a corroded lip but the pads are fine £250 per axle - haha - Ebay £80 for disks and pads all round)
Bonnet lock looks weak and set to die! - £55
Headlights have just enough pattern / light to pass the MOT this time, but probably will need a new set of headlights - Ford wanted £400 + - Ebay found new for £65 each (ish)
Antifreeze replenishment - £27 - they can do that one...
So the 900 quid bill is down to about 250 to spread over the year!
Ummm.... my wallet hurts! Happy Bleedin Birthday!
