No I don’t think it was you. It was deffo a sprint .
I’ve just read your other post about your mot failure. Do not get rid of the car, that failure list is not too big a deal! Like others have said the welding is the biggest of the jobs. The rest is easy. Find a more sympathetic to classics mot station for the next test. I use ACE MOT in Larkfield. Pete doesn’t say much about triumphs as he is a Ford man, but owns classics himself so is sensible with the laws.
Sorry I can’t recomend a welder off the top of my head because I do any welding needed on my cars myself. But I wouldn’t say I’m good enough to tackle someone else’s car. Although Brian Wilson now springs to mind from a few years back, mobile welder based in Maidstone. Maybe worth an internet search?
Good luck, and let us know how you get on
