Thanks Dave.

wheels are at a guys for powdercoating they are gping titanium with blue flake. I'm a bit nervous they will be too light but should look good!

hoping to get a nice day so I can clean the car!

got some 195/45 tyres to go on cheap for my MOT. powerflex wishbones going on friday too to replace my knackered bushes.

MOT day today. It's not up til the 7th but better to be safe. I am nervous! I dunno what it could fail on but you never know.

Heres some random pics from the other day. Car looks much better now with the 45's on and drives so much better as well, can actually go round corners at some sort of speed.

Ahhh well it failed because the MOT tester was too incompetant and couldn't move my drivers seat forwards and backwards, The sticker on the windscreen and exhaust on 2nd idle, also the exhaust being too loud so clearly that guys off the list of future MOT's, he was a cunt tbh.
Needs new rear bushes so got some powerflex on the way and one tyre close to limit which don't matter as my proper wheels are on soon.
Just gotta sort out the emissions Tuesday hopeully and either get it retested with someone better in that garage or just go elsewhere.

An MOT tester isn't incompetent if he failed a car as per the vosa regulations. He's doing his job :lol:

If the seat moves and he can't "figure it out" as he said, it's his fault ;)

My rear polybushes arrived today and i'll be off to the garage friday to get them fitted and to get my exhaust emissions sorted. Gonna clean the air filter and put some Vpower in it hopefully that should do it, probably going to get myself a standard box with a K&N panel sometime.

One more week to go and I should have my wheels back :)

Wednesday I hope to walk away with an MOT!

Big thanks to Tedley today we cracked on and fitted my samcos, got a clip kit thebother day and after he was sprayed with coolant and we had a battle with one hose we finally fitted them :) they look good! needs more work in the bay but the old hoses werent in good nick anyway.
