29th May 2010, 10:39 AM

Bad bits;
Bodywork isn't fantastic, got 25yrs worth of small scratches etc and the paintwork could do with a good polish, sideskirts could do with a respray. But it ain't a rustbox!
The rear arches have been done in the past, the nearside one had started to rust after this winter, I had a poke around and it had been done poorly with filler. I've not had time to sort it, so I got rid of most of the crap and plastered some fibreglass in there as a temp fix, won't take much to sort out I've just not had time. Other side is fine with only a tiny bit starting to come through. Front arches are excellent as is the rest of the car. Couple of tiny rust spots on roof.
Bottom of the drivers B pillar has two small holes also appeared after this winter, I've treated them and they've not got any worse sine Jan.
Theres a 50p size ding in the front valance where a truck kick up a big stone!
Small rip on drivers door trim, door handle surround missing. Needs aireal.
When windscreen was replaced the side trim bits weren't done properly, so I've bought another set and reconditioned them myself in satin black, just need fitting!

Just trying to be honest, viewing more than welcome. £1000ono with 12mths MOT.
