Just got the car through its Mot, and got oil changed and oil/air/fuel filters changed and the initial pickup with the car seems improved.

Re: going to have a go at welding the sills !

Thanks for your input guys
If it goes through the MOT without to much trouble will keep for a few more years as long as the clutch 175k holds out, apart from the sills car is still in good nick
Hope it does not need to many patches on the sills ???
