Already checked the usual areas and its solid, passed the MOT in July with no advisories too. I didn't believe it myself when the guy said it was solid but it is looking that way!

Double check and pull the trims and skirts off because mot only checks what you can see your not allowed to remove anything to check behind/underneath etc in all honesty most mots aren't worth the paper there written on, better doing your own thorough checks

Gave it a quick wash so I could see all the bad bits

Needs a deep clean, clay bar and machine polish so I will doing that in a few weeks, other than that though it seems really solid underneath. Chassis legs are solid, rear arches are good and from what I can see the rear panel if fine too, will be pulling the kit off before I clean it up properly so I will see if anything is lurking under there but I am quite confident it'll be fine

Few more pics

It's a corsa though if I get another project it'll be something a bit more special , just can't be bothered pissing round with cars at the moment, when you do it every day for a living it gets boring lol
