Fair play to you.

Right, back to your question.

As has been said, you 'should' be fine.

I've a tame MOT tester as a friend (I know there are a couple of fellas on here that ARE MOT testers) And his opinion is that the front inner wing is not a structural component on Most Landys as the suspension turrets pas through it.
However, if the corrosion is too close to the body-mount areas or the master cylinder, you could be in trouble.

I await being shot down in flames

Very nice of you to say that We are not evil fookerswell not most of us, we just like to have some fun give some advice. And test newbies of iffy questions, to see if they are worth there salt. Then quite often we have a grammer queen that pops up at times, Checking your spelling, punctuation, and capitalization..
