Good to hear it's not too bad! Mine has had the sills done a couple of years ago, nothing further thankfully. How are the arches? I want mine doing soon, but not sure on the cost of it. The 1.3 isn't bad! I had one as a courtesy car, I'm sure lots better than mk3 with a 1.1... What equipment does it have? Is there a sunroof fitted to finesse models?

Oh it is bad, I'm sure most people would scrap it, it's just I like fiestas too much to see one scrapped. If I took it to a garage to have the work done it would cost more than the car will ever be worth.

 

The arches are rotten on the inside but nothing major on the outside, the seam between inner and outer arch has gone. Am I right in thinking that isn't an MOT fail as it isn't structural?

 

As for kit, it has a sunroof and that's it, unless pop out rear windows weren't standard on the lower model??

£190 for the car, £50 for some service items and a wishbone. Plus £130 for the mig welder, but that will come in useful on the escort so I dont count that :)
Technically two new tyres as well but they came off the mk3 as they were nearly new.

You should be fine with the arches. As long As there's nothing mounted nearby you're all good. There's some of these cars with a lot of rust and it's mainly cosmetic. I think you're right with no pop out windows in the back. I thought it was a 5dr haha

you should be able to sell it for a profit if you dont want it, but it sounds like its a cheap investment!
