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.

Christ I read Inca above and my head auto-corrected it to another type of vehicle. Devisive on here, which uses those letters and also blue in colour...

I guess I read it the same way, I read 'St-Inca' and thought 'St' was an abbreviation of SEAT.

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.

I forgot until I saw one of your pictures that I only sprayed three of the four wheels.... Sorry.

Don't be daft Man. Thanks for doing three! Only leaves me one to do, but I'll probably just leave it for the character.

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.

Wrong marque but who the fuckknuckle cares. It's PSA which is close enough. 

 

Slight improvement in the old glamour department.

I saw a c2 with a Peugeot badge on the grill this morning.

Ah I'm probably thinking of C1s. What's a C2 doing with a Peugeot badge on it?

Feck knows.  It was defo a C2 and not a C1 or 106.  It was behind me for about 3 miles.
