It failed MOT on rusty brake pipes so I decided to replace them with copper. A couple of friends in the motor trade had set up business so I borrowed their lift to get underneath. They were not pleased as the job took two days - you have never seen so much brake pipe on such a small car. Front to back and then back to front and then round the petrol tank a couple of times. I must have used most of a 30m coil of pipe. And every nut and bolt was seized solid and needed cutting off.

And that was only one of many problems that ranged from electrical to carburation. It was a nightmare. Couldn't wait to get rid of it.
Blimey that really was a piece of cr@p mate!

To think, I thought we'd had it bad... lol
