This has turned into a jetta resto thread!!! Rolling Eyes Typical!!

Any way quick update, FAILED MOT!! but only just!

Its piddly things, latch on deck lid, split pin missing, bulbs need adjusting. Brakes passed but handbrake needs adjusting for our own safety.

BUT then he found one patch of welding on underside of frame head!! So its back in Tues for restest and not too bad for first MOT with us!!

Apparantly has had all new brake set up both front and rear!!

Thanks Paul for the gas last night, ill bring bottle round weekend!! Very Happy
And Damien he was impressed that the lights worked and he said "this must be one of stamps" as soon as we turned up!!! Whats Gav having motd? Fairlane??
