I just bought this lovely MG ZT supposedly it only needed and exhaust and 2 brake pipes for the mot. Unfortunatly the tester was a twat. The brake pipes are fine after a clean up but he missed shit loads of proper failiures. It really needs rear pads discs hand brake shoes and fitting kit. N/S rear brake back plate, the exhaust rear box. N/S/R spring The interior is soaked but I am hoping that the leak has been sorted as the bulkhead drains are ok unless it is coming in through the fucking awful rear lights. All this damp has buggered the side impact sensors so I need a pair of those as well. I priced it up last night at £200 for the new bits plus a couple of sensors which seem to be around the £18 mark on ebay. It currently owes me £220. What shall I do ??

Get rid of that horrid spoiler and change the head gasket.

 

Edit  -  Certainly not worth scrapping, scrap worth zilch at the moment.

Man up and get it sorted - it really only needs consumables.

What's wrong with everyone? Everyone on here is losing their funnel.

You'll be buying a twatting Bentley next.

Bridge it, but sell me the mudflaps for £10 first  :mrgreen:

 

I would fix it, bin the lexarse lights and replace the gaskets should stop boot being wet.

Trouble is I don't want it anyway. I have got enough cars as it is. If I repair it I will run it for a month then flog it. I was expecting it to be a bit quicker for a 2.5 V6 but it is just a bit meh! so won't be staying long

If your plan is to sell it on what would it be worth after the bits are fixed and a mot? £1000-£1200 ish?

If you are not keeping it then bridge may be option - no good spending a few hundred on it only to have the great unwashed offering £150 for it.

Consumables, yes. Lights... probably zero-sum to replace with secondhand originals, surely there are still Barryboys types with MG ZTs? Leave the spoiler, it's fine and better than repainting a bootlid.

 

Guessing done up it's an £895 car. Interior looks alright, wheels look like they'd clean up, how's the paint/body? Worth a polish?

Weighing it in will net you maybe £30 or so the way prices are just now.

 

 

£220 divided by 49 = £4.50 per ticket.

(If I didn't have so many plans already I'd be tempted to have it as an AROnline suitable project car. Consumables and some fettling, but working engine and nice colour).

£10/ticket = £590
Time to sort = looks about 3 hours to me?

Cost of parts = £236 as mentioned...
MOT = £55 or whatever it is these days.

 

It would totally make sense for someone who actively wanted to drive a ZT to do that work, but it doesn't add up otherwise - in my mind, anyway. Still, if it came up I'd probably have a number or two as I've never driven a 75/ZT derivative extensively - in fact the only one I've driven any distance is a ZT260. Now, if someone wants to roffle one of those...

I've never owned any 75 derivative because they made them just a bit too small, I'll probably never bother to buy one. But, I'd like to try one and at £10 a ticket for that one with 12 months MOT, I'd definitely risk £20.

The fact you said you'd probably get rid after a couple weeks gives everyone time to find a spare tenner, roffle for November 14th ?

sounds like bin fodder to me I'm afraid!!!!

 

Are you sure the handbrake shoes are toast? they should last forever (unlike the rear disc pads). A crap handbrake is more likely down to that compensator thing that is made of monkey metal.

just get it fixed...

 

most of those faults are a pain but easily fixed,

 

water getting in, well that could be the plenum drains or the back lights, does it have a sun roof?

 

bin them current lamps too, smash them with a hammer and then burn them with real fire.... they are proper shit!

 

and replace with some standard ones from a scrapper.

Hadly an extensive list it'd be daft to weigh it in just for those few things.

If you don't smash those rear lights to bits though, I happily will.

I think I will probably fix the heap. I have had the n/s rear drum off and it is a mess the linings have rotted off and how it done anything I will never know. I have found a 1.8 with headgasket issues about 40 miles away and currently on 100 quid. Might be worth a punt as he has recently fitted new pads and discs all round

Flog the rear lamps. There is a set of lexarse ones on Ebay for a 25 going for £25 just now with 7 bids so could be worth something to someone*

That makes sense ! Fix it, run it for a couple of months, sell for £500-600. You won't make a profit of any kind, but you'll be proud* of having saved a classic* MG from the frag machine.

Yeah I agree, i think some of these came with those spoilers...

 

Remove and throw the rear lights as far as you can...

 

The rest is fairly routine stuff. The ZT models are certainly more sought after too, get stuck in Panhard then stick it on the 75/ZT forum for some profit.
