MOT failure list below. Welding and brake pipes are the problems for me, the rest is new parts.
Unfortunately, the Exhaust eroded at down pipe below dpf and I lost the 2nd pipe and back box when i went over a speed bump...at slow speed! Needs 2nd pipe and back box...priced these on eBay for £40 & £80 and you would need a flexible joint to connect. Suspension arms are around £45 on eBay.
I've never done welding or replaced brake pipes so it's beyond my skill level.
This is a great forum with loads of helpful people, so hopefully someone here can fix it, use it for parts or as a farm vehicle...or my preferred option; go to town on it, roll cage it up and enter the Dakar!
Starts first time every time in coldest weather and 4x4 system works 100% and unstoppable in the snow.
