Yep, bought brakes today on an ecp discount code all round for £65, probably for a rover sd1 3500 but fingers crossed!!!

And a wing mirror cover for £15 delivered from eBay.

£75 for a screen and an evenings labour should see it back on the road.

Fingers crossed.

PS did you sell the XC90?

Quick update, she will be mot'ed by the weekend. Did the work but as suspected ECP let me down on the front brakes and supplied front discs that were too small, very annoying. I was 7-7 days that week and had already been booked in so had to go with it and replace the discs with the smaller ones supplied ( once the others came off they were in a right old state). A tentative test drive revealed the brakes worked A1 (they were a max of 10mm different) so I thought sod it lets see what the MOT man says.
He said NO!!
However, tyre and screen aside no other issues were found so I've left it at the garage ready for its full retest.

I can highly recommend this garage (MOT Autocentre,Swindon) as they've been very thorough on the car and also very fair, only £25 for an MOT with a free retest and they've been great as regards dropping off/collecting out of hours etc.

Just hope it doesn't instantly shit itself !!!!

Hopefully it goes through the MOT alright. Keep us updated. If I don't win the roffle for the focus (more than likely, given  that I've only bought one ticket) I may be interested if it was still for sale.

It will be for sale at some point but it will be a month or two at least.
Plus I'm afraid it will now be way more than the £200 as it's cost me a few Bob to put it through.
But man maths means I'll end up advertising it at £700 and take £199 for it but justify it by retaining the stereo and the fact it would have cost me more in taxis or something.

As true autoshiters do.

Seems fair to be honest. You need to recoup some of the money you put into it. Will definitely be interested in it nearer the time.

YAY !!!!

overall £350 to pass including the screen excess, new front discs and pads fitted and a new rear tyre.

They charged me £211 for the front discs pads and tyre all fitted plus the MOT which I thought was good, probably £150 in parts and tyre alone.

I messed up with the front discs and pads personally so my bad. Without that cock up it could have been all done for an evenings work and £200.

Still it now has all new brakes all round that should last a good few years, good tyres, fresh screen and MOT.

I may* even have a buyer if needs be by the end of the month although that depends more on me than anything else.

Slightly odd circumstances means that I could well be interested in this. Mrs. T's Berlingo is barely mobile and she needs wheels.

How many pictures of the queen are you looking for?
Current fleet:  Mercedes.  Xantia.  Berlingo.  Discovery.  Forward Control.  Nova. Historic shite.

Not currently for sale and leanycan above has made a provisional enquiry but it would be £600 minimum. A steal for one of these with a years ticket and very little to go wrong for the next one, looking at the usual sources anyway. I could throw in a spare engine for another ton. I'm currently using this anyway but as my contract has just been extended it could be surplus in the next few weeks of I can sort a newish c-class out.
