    could someone in the know tell me if this is an mot fail? It is on the rear leg of my discovery 2. I am assuming it will need to be repaired at some point if not immediately but if so, could it be plated?

    I'd be attacking it with a wire brush to see exactly what you're looking at, personally cutting the rot out is better than plating over the top of it

    I don't mind attacking it later with an angle grinder / steel rotary wire combo but just now, need it just to get through the mot.

    The rust on top is not flaky at all , it is solid.

    You should be fine then. You'll laugh when you see the size of the hammer the mot tester uses, it wouldn't break a lump of toffee :D

    This would take a good thrashing like to make a hole in that. I do need to investigate it further but not this week if you understand. My chassis protection stuff is just not working. I must have put so much man hours into it but just not getting there whatsoever. I will post up my box section repairs shortly and hopefully you can give me a little advise on whether they should pass. I was told at the previous mot place that these sections under the door sills were not structural hence gave them a shot with my welder.

    i suppose it depends on the m.o.t tester,if
    it passes i think it will be down as an advisory.
    i hope it passes for you mate.

    Hoping too. I would just like for once to get a clear run on the mot with this car. I was going to post the welding that I had done however the camera cannot focus that close.
