I've struck up an email exchange with the seller, I have a phone number and BIN of £150, I just need to find a time when I can sneak out to have a butchers.
Seems ok in the photos, but they don't avail to much. Brief listing seems an honest Sid'n'Doris type, including:
WE HAVE HAD IT CHECKED FOR M.O.T. AND HAVE BEEN TOLD NEEDS FLOOR WELDING WHICH WILL COST ABOUT £300.00 INCLUDING M.O.T.
(Their email address is "EdwinandJean@..." )
So if £230-ish is the quote for welding, it's probably not major or terminal. Where in particular are these prone to rot?
Will that plastic be hiding some horrors?
I have some welding gear here, I'm no expert, just need to practice.
And what else am I looking for on these?

I can cope without power steering, electric window and central locking but what I MUST have in a car is a working 12v power point/cigar lighter. I'm totally lost without one, quite literally 'cos I need it to power Garmin and phone.

I'm totally pissed off driving a truck for a living and I'm looking for a change.
I can get a workshop and tyre changing/balancing equipment cheaply and there's plenty of wholesalers willing to sell used tyres for between £6-8 each in popular sizes. I'm just wondering if I should take the plunge and see if I can make some sort of living out of it. Obviously I'd stock budget new tyres as well and offer discounts for taxis like all the other local outlets do.
Any pitfalls I need to think about? Has anyone got any relevant experience they could share?
I'm well aware that I'll need a range of smaller sockets to hammer over locking wheel nuts with missing keys.
What makes you choose your current supplier of round black squashy things?
