Not something that should have been missed then....

But more importantly an easy fix......

Re: Yay Betsy's nearly there

Yeah shes nearly fixed. New exhaust and getting the strap sorted for the petrol tank. Will be selling her as soon as shes done as i want to get the money to fund the 4X4.

So if anyones interested i will be selling with full MOT and tax till end of june.

Would like around £350 as shes in imaculate condition now!!!! Even underneath! no rust or holes or dents! Few scratches as she is an L reg.
