    Should be able to fit a fruit machine or two inside I assume?
    Exactly that, well hope so anyway. it’s already done one trip to the dump as restorer has said.
    happy so far with it, honestly though fuel gauge was broken I was getting that many miles

    • Turns out fuel gauge is broken 😂

      number plate lights were broken bulbs wasn’t sorting it- new units did.

      error code for 3rd brake light - intermittent not working - ordered.

      n/s front headlight errors even though all bulbs work 🤦🏻‍♂️

      • Even though the front headlight bulbs are working. It could be one of the bulbs elements causing a resistance.
        fuel gauge not working that's going to disappoint your MPG

        • Just quickish update,

          car failed it’s mot on a few things.
          diesel leak
          rear lights not illuminating properly (not at all on one side)
          dodgy headlight
          seatbelt not clicking in.

          so sorted seatbelt myself, was just lint stuck in the mechanism. Changed both rear lights for brand new outer units. They sorted headlight and I think they forgot about diesel leak (only leaks when brimmed and about 50p comes out then it stops.

          rear lights before and after rear inners could do with changing soon too!

          done 980 miles across
          two days after passed mot car was faultless. Picked up
          numerous machines and stuff, and so far so good.

          • Doesn't sound so bad, even in a car that comfy 980 miles must have been knackering!

            • Not knackering enough! Had 280 or so the day after.

              inbetween work which is also driving all day for 10.5 hours

                    Just give me a pipe and slippers and let me retire in peace 😂

                    Not much going on here these days, I’m hoping to put my new project up soon but not Corsa based so interest is limited!

                    • Done 55k since owned it in just over a year.

                      belt and clutch done otherwise faultless. Still very very boring though, looking to upgrade to a very caddy soon

                        • Yeah, mainly that. Prob about 98% that actually. Not including vans and using laurens car aswell!

                          passed mot today, means in last years I've travelled the equivalent of going TWICE around the world and then a bit more. Good effort

                            At least it's driving for a hobby, does L come with you? I have got a bit bored of driving lately, although that's probably down to very un-exciting vehicles, I love my van and the Disco, but neither are 'fun' drives of course. I'd let the other half drive but I'm trying to stay alive
