Re: Really need advice. Please.

Due to the age of the car it is normal for the brake pipes to have rust but by how much as many will fail it on any rust others will advise it is just surface rust and to wire brush and coat in grease
tyres this can happen at any time
brakes are normal ware and may or may not have been like it at the time you bought it
in all its a 50/50 on the list you gave
the best mot stations are ones that dont do repairs or one you can trust the one I have used for years will show me the problems if any and will use a wire brush on pipes if any rust to determine if it is surface or more serious if surface will advise on what can be done
brake hoses again they may have been ok on last mot
it could be worth looking online to see if anything was listed on the last 2 mot's
