    I have seen a nice 3d 200Tdi and I'd like some opinions on how much to offer.

    I haven't physically seen it though.

    Bodywork looks OK, some corrosion around back wheel arch. Nothing terminal.

    Nice sonar blue interior.

    10 months MOT, advisory on minor corrosion on one inner wing, brake disc worn and a drag link ball end joint having play.

    Looks like cross members were repaired in Feb.

    Seller wants about £850.

    Discuss.

    Hmmm. Think I need to treck over there and start ripping up carpets.

    Going back through MOT history it has had all the usual rot problems; seatbelt anchors etc.

    Don't mind spending a bit to keep an old lady going, but not if she's a scratty old cow.

    Also, once a car of this vintage has been welded everywhere and had all the usual rot, is there anything to be gained by filling the chassis, crossmembers and all the usual suspects with Dinitrol or is it too late?

    Repair once, repair it right and continue to protect it as best you can.

    check over the repairs, I found all kinds of dodgy carp repairs that folk actually paid for, patches over the top of rot, bits of tin stuck in with black silicone masquerading as seam sealer :eek:

    Fair is one thing, being ripped the hell off is something else entirely.

    Also, as I can't weld (yet) how much would you expect you pay to have a boot floor replaced?

    New boot floor £150-£200 ,decent starter welder £200 plus which has to around what the labour would be to get it fitted so it would pay for itself pretty quickly

    Oh I'm going to, but I don't want to practice on an important bit! Want it in place for the MOT.
