i was all chuffed this morning, i was to take the 156ts to the mechanic for everything it needed, alt,, plugs, new engine mounts & full service includiong belts pullys etc.
took a while to get the money up, but had it all sorted.
arrived at the mechanic, and told him what i wanted. so, first job was to jack car up. a minute later he says to me " m8, do you want my advise ?. get rid of this car. he then showed me the rotton underside of the car in both front foot wells going back along each side to the rear doors
. now to fix that it needs a **** load of welding x4 footwells, and on top of the things i wanted doing mentioned before. after he told me what the welding needed, and that he couldnt do it, came at me with a idea of how much that would cost, somewhere between 800-1000 quid maybe more,
. then the work i went for in the first place added on top. he asked me if i still wanted the belts and everything else done...... whats the point, told him not to bother.
so, the car has mot till december & im gonna drive it till then, then strip it for parts.
really upset by this, was after this car for soooo long, for it to end up being a lemon is hard to take.
