Good luck fella, the motor trade is very tough at the minute, sales, service, parts and bodyshop. But because of this a lot of people are jumping ship so there should be something out there for you.

Im guessing Scoobyworld made you redundant too?

I'll ask around for you buddy, I know the fraud has grinded to a halt but it won't hurt to ask. I work for a car parts supplier so get a few garages phone through, is your MOT testers certificate valid ?
