    So, on the s2...replace nose badge/driving light and clean the inside ally on show. Might also look at the gear linkages because they seem a little stiff to me (have the feeling this is one of "those" jobs so might leave till it gets a little warmer) The Evora is in fine fettle after a victorious MOT visit and just having been serviced. Might fiddle with some bits but my mum always told me off for fiddling...

  5. Kim, the integrity of the structural elements need inspection certainly as I remember seeing some very tidy "tarted up" classics that under the surface were like Swiss cheese! Not only that, but as a trained welder made me shudder when I saw some of the botched repairs using Oxy-acetylene or worse, a MIG welder. An MOT would go some way to re-assuring the car is sound. But also an inspection of the braking system, steering, bearings etc. A lot of the components that it's not obvious if they are failing, and in the "youth" of the vehicle would be picked up now by the service regime as well as the MOT. (Hopefully!) These can be some of the items that are just not checked by the owner unless some work in restoration are being carried out on them.
  6. Andy, that's a pragmatic way of looking at it. I think I would still want to get an MOT on any car I had. I haven't got one that qualifies at present though. Force of habit and it makes sense if you can prove that you are taking positive steps to keep it suitable for road use. Kevin
