    You’ve got TM Motors over in Molesey or Colin Ferns in Richmond both are very close by.

    Another option down the A3 is PCS in Horndean who are excellent :thumb:

    hi Will, I have taken my car to TM motors yesterday. They will be working on the car in order to pass the MOT. Looks like the car requires 2 days of labour which has blown the budget, but will see. Attached is the MOT fail report.

    The next step will be to gradually start the restoration project, but to be honest not quiet sure where to start. :)
    I would like to thank you and Mark for your input.
    Regards

    Just would like to thank you all for your kind help and replies. I have ended up going to TM motors and found them to be very helpful and professionals. I can not vouch for the labour price as i have not much them with other garages. The car has now a 12 month MOT with no advisory.....finally!

    As a word of advise for all future SL enthusiast thinking of buying and R107 is to look for hidden rust, and once finished inspecting........look again ;)
