Now that it is almost fit to sit in, I'll run it up to the unit for a stripdown and look..

Key elements for checking:

Condition of brakes (known fault present)
Condition of Dampers
Condition of other suspension componants
Condition of tyres

Condition of bodywork
Condition of underside
brake lines
fuel lines

Condition of fuel filter
engine oil condition
coolant conditon
fuelpump seals
air filter
pollen filter
Cambelt inspection.

Based on the outcome of that little perusal I'll see if she's worth the spending on.

If work is to go ahead, it'll likely be brakes first, followed by a full service.
Is the cambelt relatively simple on these?
