    Had a quick look over the spring yesterday from what i can of them they look to be ok, im not going to hold my breath, before i brought her she was dry stored for around half a year or so, so im hoping she'll whistle through it i hope!

    Just looked at the previous mot cert, the advisorys were...

    windscreen has damage to an area less than a 10mm circle within zone 'a' - the windscreen must of obviously been replaced and theres no damage what so ever on it.

    offside front anti-roll bar linkage has slight play in a ball joint - ?

    offside front anti-roll bar linkage ball joint dust cover deteriorated but preventing the ingress of dirt - ?

    nail in nearside tyre - all have been replaced in my owner ship

    there all what was on the last mot advisorys items.. so having had a quick once over it earlier apart from the sidelight bulb she 'seems' to be all good to go.

    Mine is booked in for the dreaded MOT next Monday afternoon, checked it over last weekend-one broken front spring, replaced the pair....only other i can find is a creaking back end (ARB's), fingers crossed it passes.
