MoT failure...

Brown has failed the MoT. Nothing too serious but obviously bad enought to fail. The fails were:

Corrosion on the chassis rails at the front subframe mounting points.
Corrosion on one of the jacking points at the rear of one of the sills.
Play in the forint wheel bearings.
Poor and imbalanced handbrake.
Loose headlight and aimed too low.
Torn exhaust mounting rubber.

It will be just over £200 to put it all right (it might be more depending on how much rot is found) so I've booked the car in for repairs and retest for next Thurdsay. I don't have to pay for the road tax on this car (1972 Triumph Dolomite) so I'm not too bothered about having to fork out to get this car through the MoT and I might as well get it done when I can afford it.
