I can assure the honourable member that such an arrangement is fully MOT compliant, M9.

Our old mk3 cavalier went through 6 mots like that.  All at the same place. Only once did he be arsed to put it down in the comments.  His advisories were always verbal too.  Oh how I miss Gordon.

I don't know why but this car, the tiny steel wheels, the colour, the dent and the eager wee exhaust pipe, it all makes me grin like mad. What a great little thing. Well bought.

It's such a cheery thing that even looking at it from a long way gives my a worm feeling in my emotions hutch.

It could only be improved by being yellow really.

I never like seeing these middle nuts exposed (or any nuts exposed if I'm not expecting it) and I remembered I had some PSA centres lying around somewhere.

Umm. They look like they've been spermed upon by the goblin of uncertain times. 

I gave them a good clean with off brand Fairy Liquid and elbow grease but that made 0% improvement. 

 

So I went to Wickes for some Plastikote.

Wickes, as you can see, was closed. 

So I went to Halfords.

Next up for small improvement is the interior. As @davehedgehog31 advised, the stitching had EXPLOD on the rear seat base.

So I did exactly what anybody's Nana would do and I threw a Tartan blanket over it.

I'd say that counts as about a 25% completed camper conversion.

Fat.  And tall.  Should be 155s I think?

Don't bodyshame my tyres you facist. They're perfect the way they are. 

I think they were van spec tyres that P.O. sourced cheaply. 

They ride lovely and grip well so I'm in no hurry to change them.
