Hi,
it looks a bright car..

tyres.. is it just worn out..? or is the inner edge trashed..and the outer still quite good.. that's a mechanical issue - tracking/or worse

( lesson for future.. keep any eye on this.. as it COULD have put 6 POINTS on your licence) dangerous condition...

welding.. it's at an age where they CAN fall apart..

get a quote for the welding..less than 200 , then it's another year to save / look for a newer / better car.

any more - don't bother

I've done this with several mk2's .. they rot-out in the end.. yours is now 15 years old..
