TSM - Bringing it back.... slowly

Ok so after continuous failure from my body shop to complete the required outrigger welding I decided to take it somewhere else. Within two days of arriving at the new garage the body had been taken off and the full extent of the rust had been exposed, luckily it wasn’t as bad as I thought. Only the...

According to the Workshop Manual I need to remove the front and rear bumpers (point 11 on extract below), having looked at other threads I've seen others lift the body with both bumpers in place.

MOT exemption

Typical DVLA logic! Bit of a pain that I have to wait until the car is 41 years old and 3 months before I can apply for the free VED.

I’ve never seen one rust through there before?

TSM - Bringing it back.... slowly
