MOT failure....

1) Nearside rear shocker leaking.
2) Too much play in stearng box (no adjustment left).
3) Brake & fuel lines running to the rear of the car corroded and need replacing.

All fixable, with 1 & 2 straight forward, but 3 (as far as I can see) requires the entire rear sub-frame assembly to be dropped out to gain access to all the brake/fuel line runs.

So, currently having neither the time, or the will to fix it, she has to go...

Will be putting on Ebay in the next few days as 'Spares or Repair'..., unless I get a sensible offer from here....?
