Hi all,


Took my Mk1 2L Vitesse Convertible for an MOT today. Didn't expect it to pass but, 6 years after naively purchasing it, the previous bodges are starting to show through. The bit I'm going to struggle with most is the rear n/s passenger floor pan. It's a bit of a mess. Fibreglass underneath and rust on top.


I have no welder/skills (yet) and live nowhere near 'home', where I can lean on friends/family. Is there any hope of plugging it for the MOT so I can at least drive it back? Or am I going to have to shell out to have it done professionally nearby? Any guidance would be appreciated.

From previous experience its better to get it sorted correctly in the first place.  It shouldn't be that expense, i had all my outriggers cut off, new ones re-welded and the whole underneath waxoiled for £650 (just outside Salisbury) so a easy access job like that shouldn't be expense. Otherwise your just wasting money on another temp bodge.
