Got the beetle back

Got the beetle back

It originally failed the MOT on: [] Track rod end ball join dust cover excessively deteriorated x 2 [] Brake pipe excessively corroded x 2 [] Shock absorber excessively worn bush x 2 [] Headlamps ain too low [*] No windscreen washer

plus LOADS of advisories including the rear lights and the tires being barely legal, but I suspected that. Also there is a handwritten note "excessive corrosion - front chassis / floor pan", and that's what has resulted in 800 quid of welding to keep the car safe and legal:

Apart from that, and the dreadful weather, nice day in Canterbury today, good lunch in Zizzi, I had the vegan style of a new special pizza with beetroot and avocado and chili on it, very nice.
