Info:- Checking the bodywork
Rust is now a problem on the MK2, check carefully for rust on the underside of the doors, sills, boot floor, cabin floor especially under any exterior skirts etc
Look carefully for accident damage. Crouch down and look down either side of the car to ensure the panels are aligned and check panel gaps all around the vehicle.
Remove the T-bar glasses (if fitted) and inspect the rubber seals for signs of damage and deterioration of the rubber. Leaking T-bars are very common, but can be easily fixed as long as the rubber seals are in good condition.
Test the following cable operated release mechanisms..
Boot release - Bonnet release - engine compartment release - fuel cap cover release.
