Been working on my GTV for about 10 months now getting it roadworthy. I bought the car as spares/repair but with some decent history for up to half of its life.
Took it in yesterday to a local garage who was fantastic with me to say the least.
He failed the car on a tyre, the brake efficiency was borderline positive and they had to work hard to get the car to fall in emissions but as i told him its not had a decent run for ages he knew what he was working with.
Anyway, once the tyre was replaced he checked the brakes, stripped them as was seized and now all sorted....no charge.
Cost of a tyre and MOT, 1 ton and job done
Been out today and ran really well, bottle of FORTE additive recommended and some fresh fuel and another years motoring.
Advisorys of anti roll bar links deteriated but no excessive play. Will probably look to replace wishbones etc as seasrching the forum, this looks like a subframe lowered job, labour around 5 hours?
I have this insured (COMP) on a classic policy, costs just over £300 inc breakdown with RH Specialist insurance in Essex. Would recommend
