its done 85k

exterior is mint

interior is mint

but has a blowing exhaust

and the steering column has LOADS (nearly a quarter turn) of play in it but after searching the forum this looks like a common problem.

just had new discs and pads
new clutch cable

But

Is only MOT'd till october
and tax runs out in may.

and the arches look fabulous!

What should i offer???
Welding looks like an easy job!

Its a williams two.... owned by a lady driver.

Sounds good that if it is mint and just wants a column weld, just make sure its not the rack or tranck rod ends as well as the column because it sound like youve got a load of play there.

Sh*tter that mate, good job you checked though, could have bit you in the arse that one, and yes it could be the rack after 85k as its been on the road a long time as well as the mileage.
