MOT's on my Blue Sport

I took my car to a dealer about a month ago and they failed my car on a load of things so i sorted out the big problems


I Sorted all this apart from the front brake hoses.
I put new front and back brake pads and front Disc's
Changed my front suspension
New Track rod ends
New Brake Cylinders because i snapped my bleed nipples (haha)
New Brake pipes on the back

I took it back and they failed it again because my CO2 was to high after i spent £35 on 2 items for Halfords that said it would lower my CO2 and it clearly didnt :S
The guy at ford said change my cat so i did along with the centre and back box on the exhaust :D

I took my car to a different garage for another MOT and he failed it on 3 other things plus my CO2 lol


The Guy that did my MOT at the second garage said he will fix it for £40 :p
So i was like to right ill bring it back friday...

Haha they had a deal on for MOTs plus i know people that work there so i took it to jennings ford and they failed it
So i took it to a garage i have been to many times and he is going to sort it.

As for my engine im going to get it rebuild, load of upgrades and shiny parts but when i fit in a corsa im going to try hide the wiring the best i can :p

Update:
I have had the car on the road for 7 months and its been going like a dream just had a battery problem over winter, just wouldnt start. It would start after trying for 5minutes or straight away with a push. Then as soon as a changed the battery with a new one it started starting first time everytime :D haha
I also haven't got around to replacing my windscreen as it cracked due to a large pot hole outside of work, glad i never as i got a stone chip in it the other day, right in the drives side of the screen :(
I have also been doing little odd jobs on the car over the winter changed my ball joints, scuttle panel (tigra scuttle), spark plugs, HT Leads and coil pack. I changed the last 3 because i thought that was my problem with starting :S how wrong was i haha

My next jobs are to change my boot as it is rotten behind the number plate :(
Change the front wings rotten behind the plastic trim
Front bonnet stone chips and tiny dent because my cousin got p****d off when he had it
sort the paint on the side skirts as its flaking off
sort the rust behind the rear wheel arches
Prop's do some engine things for example Terraclean :p

I will be posting pictures as work goes on
thank you for reading this life story haha

Right guys been years haha I'm currently driving a Mk4 Astra 1.7dti but I still have a corsa b but it's a 1.2 sxi black
The Arden blue corsa was sold for £200 and I wish I just got it sorted instead because it ended up getting stripped and chopped up haha
