MOT Tomorrow

Post by Re-Carbed » Wed Jan 09, 2019 4:22 pm

"The box" is due for its MOT test tomorrow and I'm hoping for another year of razzing about, but the rot's gradually creeping in and I know one day it's going to be bad news. This year has been bad for the box as someone drove into the drivers door and stoved it in - I've pushed it out but it hasn't improved its looks. Let's see what happens... :?:

Badly....and it'a R.I.P. I'm afraid for the box. Lots of corrosion issues - floor, sill and suspension mounting areas, both rear suspension pivots excessively loose and emissions which I've never been able to get into spec. Last year they were kind to it but now it's gone too far so another one bites the dust - bringing this model down to 22 still in use. My second and possibly last Metro...sad :(

yes that is sad. cant you sell it to someone and then buy a working one. it seems possible to find a relatively cheap metro still.
