UNFORTUNATELY (fortunately..!) the fitter was their MOT [Vehicle Inspection Test] guy....
.... he wasn't too enamoured of this lot! The fuel lines [front ones in this picture] are fubarred but not a 'fail' for the Test...
His advice is to track back under the plastic cover, along the floor >> back a foot (pipes are not corroded) >> and get a section of new brake pipe joined/running back to the rear end. He did note that the pipes must be 'correctly restrained/clipped' per factory [good as..] so I better be careful with the plastic clips.
Will inquire at my garage, when the radiator is fitted on Thursday. :crying:
Hooray.... The tyre/exhaust guy waived the charge, for the tyre repairs, as I have been messed about over the muffler fault.
My contact in Ireland has sorted a replacement plastic grille & it is coming over by courier end of next week.
The grille on my car has been broken since I got it... And there are no breaker cars to be found about my area. Net 'searches' nationally found one but way.. way.. too pricey :surprise:
Another 'irritation' /snagg ticked off my list.... :grin:
