    Had the same was pure laziness that I left it this long but to be fair the car needs a proper clean out the inside is filthy... (have seen way worse though) but for me it deffo needs a clean out... but it will get done after the mot.

    and the car passed it's mot in one go... no mentions of stuff that needed to be addressed other than the OSF driveshaft boot (again by the way) i'll just buy a brand new driveshaft again as this one is out of warranty. the time it takes to just replace the boot, the price for the part and time it takes me to fit it and clean afterwards. it is way easier and cheaper to just replace the whole driveshaft.... keep the old one and weigh it in at a later date for scrap metal

    Oww they keep moaning about the tinted rear lights but that ain't gonna change until i run into some smoked clear LEd rear light clusters as i hate the red part of them with a passion.

    Spray with furniture polish, reel in and out a few times, then wipe off any excess.

    Very astute of my MOT tester last week: Rear Exhaust has a minor leak of exhaust gases (6.1.2 (a)) " the back box is cracked at the flange - sits closed but'll open up when you go round a corner and fall off soon "

    It did - last night ! Luckily I'd ordered a new one based on what he said and just fitted it )

    Got the headlight alignment done and machined about 1mm from the inside of the new locking wheel bolt covers on the lathe, they were simply too tight. They now slide on with a small amount of resistance like the standard nut covers.


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    just walked around the car... noticed that the NS rear lights were way less bright than the NS rear ones... now i did tint them so i thought strange let me polish them up a bit... noticed they are equally tinted as thick... so it could only be something with the connector or the cable... pulled the connector off, found the ground in the NS was seriously covered in corrosion... scrapped it clean than used a electronical cleaner to clean both the connector spades and the female connector on the cable. Put it back together when it was dry and checked both rear light clusters for light output... they are the same now... another thing done.

    the mot tester must have thought it was tinted to dark and mentioned it on the MOT as an advisory and because i only tinted the red bit, he mentioned the brake and position lights.
