Quite amazingly, the Rover passed its' MoT on the 11th with just an advisory on the condition of the long front/rear brake pipe.
All the previous welding is holding up well (probably because quite a good job was done and I'd subsequently injected the sills with loads of Dynax-S50 cavity wax) and no handbrake adjustment required!

So I treated it to an oil & filter change, using the QH oil filters that I had got earlier in the week from best_of_british (they have got a load of NOS Quinton Hazell oil filters for the L series diesel in so I had 8 for £20).

One thing I did note was that on the emissions test it seemed particularly clean for a diesel but that's anotehr thread.

Great stuff! Re the long brake pipe, do you know how easy/hard that is to replace? I seem to remember that the pipes go over the top of the petrol tank and that people often re-route them around the sides when they re-fit?

congratulations on the pass.

GEF my 600 recently passed with 2 advisories.
One of them was the metal fuel pipes front to rear.
fuel and brake pipes share the same under car plastic dirt collecting channel.

Brake pipes can be re routed from original providing they are secure.
