Some images of my FB Marketplace purchase

Following a long 5.5 hour trip back from Norwich on Friday, I've had some time to take pictures before I start cleaning it. These are as purchased. On the way home, it drove sweetly, I think I did a few nudges of 80mph, but mainly around 65. There is a nasty crashy clonk over larger bumps from the OSF, and the engine light is on. The Yaw sensor seems to flash up occasionally so I suspect it will need doing soon. Its a 67000 mile car, 1.4 petrol SE. At a cost of £1000 to purchase, its now cost the same to to a service, cambelt etc, but I should think I will need to spend that again too. Very pleased with it!

Eeeegads. That's some flora and fauna on the car. Be cautious cleaning it from the rear spoiler lve seen such growth lifting the surface coating off

So, yes, I jet washed a lot of the coating off. I am assuming the rear spoiler is Aluminium?

No, it's a hollow foam core, with plastic outer shell.
Very likely to contain some, (maybe a lot), of water. Worth drilling holes, a little way in from each end, 6 to 8 mm, for it to drain. Stand clear or risk a soaking as the bit breaks through.
Mac.
