Headlamps are adjustable from the screws around the rims..
But sounds like u've got some welding to do especially around the seatbelts.

Windscreen washer I find is best to replace with and electric one from motormania and a simple flick switch mounted on the dash default/smile This saves you using the spare tyre and possibly having a flat spare when u really need it!

The brake may just need bleeding but best make sure it's not worn or the cylinder is malfunctioning.

aarrrh thats how they expect you to pump it up default/big_smile

Re: Mot disaster HELPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP

The worst part is probably the rear subframe mounting repairs. It a nasty bast*** to do. How good is the rest of the car as it might involve taking the rear wings off. It its going to be a show car its going to cost a small fortune.
Brake linkage is welding as the seat belt.
Low brake effort will probably be a wheel cylinder or adjustment
Headlamps will probaly need minor adjustments as WBK said
Horn could be the push button and washers might be just enmpty or the bottle needs pressurizing
