      Before wasting anyone's time this car is not roadworthy, and just outside Edinburgh - it is however very cheap. If this sounds of interest then read on....
       
      This is your chance to save my project Bini from the scrappy, or worse still, Facebook Marketplace.
      Kind of testing the water really (I hate when people say that in an advert!) but an impending house move and requiring the garage for other stuff during renovations of said new house plus general lack of time and enthusiasm means the sensible thing to do is get shot of it, and in so doing I am admitting failure that I've not been able to rescue this fine little car.
      This is roughly what it looks like:

      I say roughly because the stripes are gone and replaced with racing roundels on the bonnet and doors and a single stripe on the bonnet - which in my opinion looks awesome.
      Bodily it's in excellent condition with no rust or dings however have a look at the MOT fail sheet,  scroll down if you can't be bothered looking it up - this all still needs doing however I do have new trackrod ends, ball joints, top mounts plus discs and pads which can be thrown in for a fair offer (cost me £200 from ECP)
      Now the catch is that the lower nearside suspension bolt has sheared in-situ and the lower ball joint nut is butchered in a failed attempt to remove, this is the primary reason for me throwing in the towel.
      As far as I can tell the engine is good as is the gearbox however I've only driven it 10miles since I bought it last April so absolutely no guarantees offered or implied - it has been garaged all that time and occasionally run up and down the drive.
      Comes with a good wad of history including receipts for recon gearbox and new PAS pump around 40k miles ago.
      The eagle-eyed among you will also spot a mileage discrepancy in the MOT history this is due to a change in speedo unit which has now been changed once more to one with roughly the correct mileage which is somewhere around 130k, of course no guarantees can be offered or implied.
      It starts, drives and stops but would obviously need trailered away.
      I'm just outside Edinburgh which I know limits my market on here for a non-roadworthy car but I'd rather it went to a good home and went back on the road than face the pain of trying to flog it elsewhere.
      If anyone is seriously interested in giving this poor little Bini a good home give me a shout, any offers of 'some money' will be considered to get it out of my way. Obviously I'd like to recover some of my 'investment' if possible but I also appreciate that MOT'd Binis are dirt cheap at the moment.
      Not sure if there is an appetite for Roffl-ing a non-roadworthy car but that may be an option if there is enough interest.

      Ok I'm going to see if we've enough interest in the Autoshite Dealership stickers to run off another batch.
       
      I will need to pre-sell a minimum of 120 before I will place another order, and I have contacted the company that made them to recheck the run price.
       
      I am also considering a new design with the url in it, but done so it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb (and I corrected the boobies for this run!):

      Not sure what the market for these are now as the seem to be priced all over the place,
      Anyone care to put a value on this pile of old shite
      I bought it with good intentions but decided to buy the hippo instead so this is now just sitting doing nothing
      it drives really well with a nice tight gear change, engine starts first time and runs really nice,
      it has chassis rust (don't they all) mainly back cross member, front driverside outrigger, and rear shock mount area,

      Yesterday I was in hospital having surgery on my ankle so rather than rest like the surgeon said I have arranged to go and collect my new car.
      I have been awake all night in pain so what could possibly go wrong! Luckily it's only a couple of hours round trip so I reckon I can do it, if I get really tired on the way back the accommodation in my new car is positively palatial and I can rest up on the heated rear seats.
      Can't wait!
