it lives !!!

it lives for another year after passing is MOT on retest LOL.
the tester was quite surprised i managed to drive it there, his words were , it squats on its suspension like cross between a baby deer and a drunk frog , ie splayed out and all over the place
after ripping the front suspension out we found that there was more wrong than the MOT picked up - the lower arm bushes as suggested were that worn there was day light were the rubber should have been, as well as siezed ball joints not picked up !!!!!, the trackrod ends were also worn, it was the same both sides
How i kept it on the road and going round corners is beyond me, but 2 days and its got a full ticket and another 12months to terrorise the roads :D

i go to pick it up tomorrow and drop off the Clio i borrowed from my mechanic father
