The seat belt mounts were done prior to me buying it not the best job but it was already done. I think every vitara I've had has needed work around that area including the one I just bought with 70k on it and one owner!!

Otherwise a strip at the back were the tailgate meets the back and a couple around the front footwell

The sills were surprisingly good and I felt bad cutting them out but I wanted box sills before I crushed them anyway!

Pinky has just arrived. The mrs is having Kittens and moaning like mad at me. I have had to put a cover on it outside my garage because she is embarrassed by it.

It needs a fair bit of body work for sure but not to worried by that. The exhaust has a slight blow and the fan belt squeaks and i think what is common for these the electric windows are slow and not working.

I have just had the car inspected and nothing to serious most of the things are due to the age of the car.

Have you checked for an insurance premium for it yet?

I was going to buy a C cat Discovery the other day very cheap - I changed my mind for the following reasons

Once a C cat always a C cat - you have to declare the fact if you sell it, even if you have it repaired professionally.

Getting insurance... the cheapest I was quoted on comparison sites was 400 but if I declared it was a C cat then when I found someone who would insure it (after a lot of persuasion) the premium was almost 700 - the disco just had a few dints on the bonnet, grill and bumper - would have cost between 5 and 700 to repair but I would never make my money back and the insurers wouldn't issue the policy until all the repairs had been done and a new MOT showing that the vehicle was safe for the road
