Getting the Sov back on the road

The Forty has been SORN and off the road for about a year now, I've decided it's time to give it some TLC and get it back driving. It's been garaged thankfully, for the first time since I've owned it. The battery was flat but after a good charge it lept into life and the engine ran well as usual.

At the last MOT there was quite a list of fails, I'd intended to tackle these myself but I've had no time with one thing and another. The main failure was to structural body areas underneath that require welding, I did want to buy a welder and get into having a go at that but I've now decided to pay someone to do the work and just get the car back on the road. So the next thing is to get it down to the test station and find out whether anything has got better or worse since it's been laid up!
