It's that time again, and I've been too busy to do stuff before the
price rise :(
Anyway, crawling underneath shows up some things that need attention:
Rear bump stops - brackets have rusted and one is missing. Are they a
requisite for the MOT? I'll do them in any case eventually, but she's
been running fine without so if they're not essential...
She seems to have had some sort of retaining strap round the prop shaft
at one time. I think it might be there to stop the thing flailing about
in case of failure, but the bracket has rusted and the strap is hanging
loose by one end. Again, I can see the point, but is this an MOT
failure? If not' I'll remove it and replace it in due course when I've
some time. I'm most unlikely to break the shaft as it's fairly new and
I'm not doing anything stressful like off-roading at the moment.
All thoughts appreciated (as ever).
